Louisville makes big impression on Lamb

Five-star 2010 prospect Doron Lamb will virtually have his pick of which college he'll attend. Last weekend, Scout.com's No. 2-ranked shooting guard chose to make a visit to Louisville. It was a visit Lamb described as ‘great.'

One of three Top 25 juniors to visit Louisville over the holiday weekend, Lamb came away highly impressed with Rick Pitino's program.

"It went great," Lamb said of his visit to Louisville. "The fans go crazy over the basketball players and they love you. They treated me real good. They've got a nice campus, a nice court, nice dorm – nice everything. I don't think anybody in the country has a dorm like that. They've got their own private dorm. It was nice. I hung out with the team on campus and had fun. Me, Josh Selby and Jeremy Tyler had a good time on campus."

Where does Louisville stand with Scout.com's No. 2-ranked shooting guard in the Class of 2010?

"I like Louisville," Lamb said. "They're one of my top choices. I don't have a Top 5 right now but Louisville is one of my choices. I put them near the top. I like them. I'm thinking about them (a lot)."

Louisville coach Rick Pitino would like to add the talented New York guard to his 2010-11 roster. "He said that he liked me as a player and he thinks my game will fit in at Louisville," said Lamb, who averaged 22 points per game as a sophomore. "He wants me to come to Louisville."

Louisville isn't the only school that would like to get a commitment from the 6-foot-4, 175-pound Lamb. Lamb said he's also considering Memphis, Marquette, Syracuse, Xavier, Kansas, St. John's, Seton Hall, Rutgers and Providence. "I'll probably narrow things down after my high school season," Lamb said. "Whatever school that my mom and dad and me like that's where I'll be going."

The New York native is headed to national power Oak Hill Academy in Mouth of Wilson, Va. this season where he'll play for Steve Smith. "I leave Sunday for Oak Hill. We'll be good," Lamb said. "We not going to lose."
