Cali DB Terrail Lambert

A player from Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure has been the MVP of the SoCal Nike Camp the past two years and there's a solid chance of it happening again this year. That's because defensive back Terrail Lambert is one of the top players in the West and will likely test off the charts.

Lambert, 5-11, 180 pounds played linebacker a year ago but will play either safety or corner in college. He's a big hitter who totaled 70 tackles and 11 quarterback sacks last season to earn All-County and All-State Underclass honors.

Lambert is one of those players who is always around the ball. We've seen him play in passing league games before and Lambert has shown great cover skills to go along with his blazing speed. The athlete has already clocked a 10.67 in the 100m this year and runs consistently in the 4.3-4.4 range.

Two years ago, running back Lorenzo Booker earned Camp MVP honors and last year it was receiver Whitney Lewis. The MVP of the camp goes to the players who not only test well but has a dominant showing in the position and one on one drills. We're expecting Lambert to do very well in both aspects.

On the recruiting front, Lambert has offers from Northwestern and Ohio State and is hearing from all of the Pac 10 plus Michigan, Colorado, Notre Dame, Nebraska and Wisconsin.

"Michigan has been my favorite school since I was little and is still my favorite right now," Lambert said. "I also like Miami, USC, Notre Dame, Arizona and UCLA. I'm looking for a school where I can do football and track, has a strong academic background and where I can come in and make an immediate impact."

Academically, Lambert is carrying a 3.4 GPA and he has scored a 975 on the PSAT.
