Lamb starting to get more attention

Considering K-State failed to grab a tight end in the recent class, Texas product Jason Lamb is looking like he would be quite the pick-up, for any program.

He's got size, decent speed, and solid hands.

Considering Kansas State failed to grab a tight end in the recent class, Texas product Jason Lamb is looking like he would be quite the pick-up, for any program.

At 6-foot-5 230 pounds a 4.80 40 yards, Lamb projects to be both a receiving and blocking end at the next level. Though he shines on the offensive side of the ball, there's also been some looking at him on the defensive side.

Lamb does not want to be locked into a single label of a blocking end or receiving end, because he has the, "size to block, and hands to be a dependable receiver."

He had 11 receptions for 250 yards and three touchdowns last season in a primarily passing offense at Richardson Berkner, but does not have any offers as of yet. He has however, received hand written correspondence from K-State, Notre Dame, Baylor, and Texas A&M. Texas Tech, SMU, Arkansas, and Georgia have also showed some interest. The Wildcats' Bob Elliott is handling Lamb's recruiting, but they have yet to speak over the phone. Also worth noting is that Lamb took part in Junior Day at Notre Dame.

"I'm really interested in any school in Texas right now," he said. "I'm also excited though to see what kind of opportunity I could have to leave the state. It's really early right now, so a lot is really unsure."

Lamb said he wants to find out more about the Wildcats, but will be unable to participate in K-State's summer camp, a three-day event, due to scheduling conflicts. The camps he does plan to attend include Baylor, Tech, SMU, A&M, and possibly TCU.

But Lamb, who works out with a personal trainer in the summers, is showing some considerable interest, and perhaps some kind of lean towards the Red Raiders, if of course they come through with an offer. One thing Lamb is closely watching are the offer lists at tight end from his list of favorites—like A&M, which has offered four ends already, but not Lamb.

"They throw the ball a lot there and don't use the ends as blockers so much," he said. "It's an offense that a tight end can really do well in."

Lamb, who wants to add weight and get his speed to a 4.70 by the fall, said he's expecting a bigger offensive role next season. Berkner lost 13 offensive linemen and their star running back, so the ball is going to be thrown around a little more.

In the classroom Lamb has excelled as well, carrying a 3.70 GPA, on a 4.00 scale. He's also scored a 1060 on his SAT and plans to take it again soon. He has yet to take the ACT.
