Alston is a player who has the height, weight and speed to play either defensive back or wide receiver on the college level.
Listed among the the top 28 players in the state of Kentucky by state-wide publications and the 9th best player in the state by TheInsiders Louisville site, InsideTheVille.com, Lamar is hearing from numerous colleges, including Louisville, Florida, Alabama, Wake Forest, Kentucky, Auburn, Tennessee, Cincinnati, Mississippi State, Indiana and others.
When asked how much interest Mississippi State is showing in him, Alston said, "they are sending letters to my home right now."
Although he has some interest in MSU, as of now, he knows very little about them other than what he reads in their letters.

"I've received offers from Louisville, Wake Forest, Indiana and Cincinnati," said Alston.
An honorable mention all-state choice as a junior after recording 8 interceptions, Alston told Gene's Page he has two schools that are at the top of his list.
"Louisville and Florida are my favorites," said Alston.
