Since the spring, Lamb, a 5-foot-9, 191-pound athlete from Miami (Fla.) Northwestern, has tried to make his first UNC visit with no success.
UNC is the only school that Lamb has discussed scheduling an official visit with. However, he's looking to take all five of his official visits, with Mississippi State and Nebraska as likely other destinations.
Lamb says he's saving his verbal commitment for Signing Day.
"I'm looking for a school that's willing to let a freshman start," Lamb said. "I want to go to the NFL; I want a school to help me with that. And [I want] a school that has good academics."
Despite the lack of a scholarship offer, LSU remains Lamb's favorite.
"LSU is still leading, but I talk to the North Carolina coaches a lot and Mississippi State coaches," Lamb said. "From LSU, I talk to [Don] Yanowsky, a lot."
Lamb speaks weekly to UNC's coaches. John Blake is Lamb's primary recruiter, but he also communicates with Butch Davis.
"We talk about the game I had or the game I have coming up," Lamb said. "We also talk about stuff outside of football."
Recently, Lamb's conversations with UNC's coaches have centered on Northwestern's nationally televised game against archrival Miami (Fla.) Central. The coaches were able to catch the game live on ESPN2.
"They said I looked good [and] coming off the injury I played real good," Lamb said.
In May, Lamb broke his fibula in spring practice. He sat out most off-season activities, but hasn't missed any games this fall.
UNC is recruiting Lamb as "a running back/slot type guy," according to Lamb.
"I'm really interested in that," Lamb said. "That's what my team is trying to do with me now. I'm already getting used to it."
