Wolverines a co-leader for Lamb

Last month, Miami Northwestern tailback Corvin Lamb received a Michigan offer. As it turns out, if it wasn't for the advice of a teammate, the offer may have been mixed in with his regular mail. As it turns out, he read it – and Michigan is one of his two early favorites.

Last month, Miami Northwestern tailback Corvin Lamb received a Michigan offer. As it turns out, if it wasn't for the advice of a teammate, the offer may have been mixed in with his regular mail.

"I was riding home and going through my mail. I usually don't read the letters from colleges, I just take them home to my mom where they stack up. But Todd Chandler was there and told me to open my mail. I saw the Michigan letter, so I opened it up and saw the offer. I called Torrian Wilson to make sure it was real, and he was like, ‘Yeah, I just got offered by Michigan too.' Then I called coach Magee."

The Wolverines join the likes of Mississippi State, Florida International, Ole Mississippi, West Virginia in offering Lamb, plus Kansas State which just recently offered.

Despite living in the state of Florida, which is loaded with college football powers, Lamb has always had strong feeling toward the Maize and Blue.

"I love Michigan! Been following them since I was little. It's a good school with great tradition. I know they had a bad year, but I know they'll bounce back."

While it's clear the Wolverines are in a good position for Lamb, one school from the Big 12 could challenge them.

"I really like Oklahoma. They're always in big games, they produce NFL players, and recently had a Heisman Trophy winner."

Academics are a priority for Lamb and his family, which caused him to miss a combine last week due to SAT prep training. He plans to major in either sports medicine or criminology in college.

There are a few other factors that will go into the speedster's decision.

"I want them to love me, to make me feel safe. I want to play right away. I want to earn it though. I'm a godly person, so I'd like to see a Christian aspect."

In the meantime, Lamb will be running track with team USA, an invitational only team that represents the USA in Track and Field contest.

When asked for his most recent track time, Lamb quickly answered.

"I ran the 200 meter dash in 21.3 seconds."
