Jesup (GA) Wayne County quarterback Greyson Lambert has several options. Rated a four-star prospect and the No. 9 quarterback in the country by, Lambert has nearly double-digit offers on the table.

Alabama, Boston College, Louisville, Miami, Purdue, Mississippi State, South Carolina, and Virginia are some of the schools that have offered Lambert a scholarship. This past weekend he was named Quarterback MVP at the South Carolina MVP Camp, and the weekend prior to that he camped at NC State and South Carolina.

"Both of those camps were great," said Lambert. "I was at NC State on Friday and then South Carolina on Saturday.

"NC State was more of a camp... it had a camp feel to it. I wasn't the only quarterback, and I got less throws but we had the one-on-ones and those things. At South Carolina I was the only quarterback with coach Mangus, and we went through their route tree. He'd line up the routes, and I would make the throws to him."

Checking in at 6-foot-5 and 205 pounds, Lambert says that South Carolina re-confirmed the scholarship offer they had extended prior to the camp.

"I have an offer from South Carolina, and the said they really appreciated me coming out," said Lambert. "It was borderline because of my leg, but they thanked me for working out and let me know that I had the scholarship offer."

NC State is more of a unique situation. The Wolfpack have yet to offer a scholarship to a quarterback, and had several prospects attend their one-day camps in June looking to secure the offer.

"I know NC State had their final camp this past weekend, and the coaches had told me that they would do most of their evaluations today and they would start giving out the committable offers," Lambert stated. "They told me that they were going to give the player a couple of days to decide and start moving on to the next person on the list if he doesn't commit.

"I understand why they are doing it. At this point in the game we kind of know who our favorites are, and I believe they feel they will get the guy who really wants to be at NC State."

Lambert also checked out the Wolfpack's facilities while in Raleigh and left impressed with those and the coaching staff.

"I really liked all the coaches at NC State," he stated. "They are all player coaches. They are going to make you do it their way, but they are going to have fun doing it and you are going to learn a lot from them. They are high-energy guys too.

"Also their facilities are really nice, that surprised me. Overall it was a great visit. One of my teammates, Ty McGill, is going there, I think he leaves tomorrow, and he is always telling me about them. I had a pretty good idea of what it would be like when I went there, but I was still surprised a bit by it."

Lambert, who maintains that he is wide open, plans to continue taking visits and knows that he has to have a decision made prior to December because he will enroll at the school of his choice in January.

"I was going to decide before my senior season, but I wasn't able to go out and visit all the schools I wanted to because I was on crutches," he said. "Now that I can I'm going to visit some schools in July, it probably won't be before my senior season, but it will have to be either during it or right after because I am scheduled to go to college in January.

"I'm really going to visit as many schools as I can here in July and then I might know more."

Given the fact that NC State will likely put their top quarterback target on the clock, how does Lambert feel he would handle that situation if he received the offer?

"That's a tough question," he said. "I would have to pray about it and really talk it over with my parents because it is a big decision."

Lambert passed for nearly 2,000 yards and 20 touchdowns as a junior at Wayne County High School.

"Lambert can throw the football," says Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons. "He has the size to comfortably survey the field over the linemen, he has shown great field vision, and his arm strength speaks for itself.

"His arm and size are his biggest strengths, but he really needs to work on his footwork and mobility. He is always going to be a drop-back passer, but his improving in those areas will allow him to buy time for his receivers and help with his consistency."
