Strong's first commit taking more visits

Corvin Lamb committed to Charlie Strong without stepping foot on Louisville's campus. This weekend, the two-star Miami (FL) Northwestern running back made an official visit to Louisville. Lamb enjoyed his visit and says he's solid, but talked about taking two other visits before signing day.

Corvin Lamb was the first player in the 2010 class to commit to Louisville coach Charlie Strong. This weekend, Lamb finally had an opportunity to visit the school that he committed to last month.

"It was very exciting, it was fun and everything," Lamb said. "I was real happy to go up there this whole weekend. I checked out the facilities and everything is state of the art. The coaching staff is phenomenal. My coach, Kenny Carter, is a great coach and has coached great running backs. I really see myself being there my next four years."

Corvin Lamb plans to visit UCF and Mississippi State.
Lamb, a two-star running back with 4.3 speed, rushed for 912 yards and 14 touchdowns as a senior, helping guide Miami Northwestern to a 10-2 mark.

"They want me to play running back and move me out a couple of times," Lamb said. "Where ever I can help the team."

Lamb committed to Louisville without visiting campus. He did that because of his relationships with Strong and Carter, who recruited him while they were assistants at Florida.

"I already had a relationship with both coaches," Lamb said. "When I heard they were moving over there it was no problem for me to commit because I had a relationship with them."

Lamb explained why he wants to play for Strong at UofL.

"Coach Strong is a nice guy and he's very positive. There's nothing negative about him," Lamb said. "He always has a smile on his face. Coaching-wise he's a great coach. He's won two national championships in the last five years. He's a great coach."

While Lamb's commitment to Louisville is firm, the 5'10, 185-pound running back plans to make a few more visits this month.

"I'm taking other visits, but for my first visit that was real big – I liked [Louisville], it was impressive," Lamb said.

Lamb said he plans to visit Syracuse next weekend with Todd Chandler, then check out Mississippi State and UCF before signing day.

This weekend, Lamb visited Louisville with Northwestern High teammates Michaelee Harris, Torrian Wilson and Todd Chandler. Harris has already committed to Louisville, while Wilson, a three-star OL, and Chandler, a four-star defensive lineman, are strongly considering the Cards.

"Michaelee was real impressed, Torrian was really impressed and liked what he saw and Todd Chandler was impressed," Lamb said. "We have talked about going to the same school but we've never said we are going to the same school. We can't say we're going...yet."

According to Lamb, he and Harris have been working hard to get Chandler and Wilson to join them at Louisville.

"We kept being in [their] ears about Louisville," said Lamb. "I hope it works."
