Lampkin Enjoys His Official To OSU

Saying he was going to check with his coach (Todd Lawson) at Fort Worth Dunbar tomorrow about the ceremony they would be having on signing day, Ashton Lampkin sounded very enthusiaistic about his future at Oklahoma State on his way home from his official visit.

The 5-11, 175 pound cornerback has tremendous speed and has picked off 10 passes over the past two seasons and last season — knowing opponents would throw at his side less — he really worked on improving his tackling. This weekend he worked on getting to know OSU and Stillwater more, some from a social aspect.

"It was great and I had a lot of fun," said Lampkin, who said his past visits to Stillwater like the one for Bedlam were confined to the football facility and campus. "I got to meet a lot of players on the team that I hadn't seen before and we went to some parties. The guys were really cool. There wasn't a lot of things, nothing new about the football, but I saw more of campus and Stillwater."

He found the accommodations very nice.

"Yeah, it was great to stay in the hotel (Atherton) that we stay in the night before games," added Lampkin. "The food was great, blew me away. Last night we had steak and chicken wrapped in bacon and macaroni. It was really good, all of it."

Lampkin said he had a really good player host in Jonovan Griffin and that went well. Lampkin is all set on heading to Oklahoma State in the summer to get ready for his college career.

Before then he will stay busy with school and track. Lampkin runs the 4X400, 4X200, and 4X100 relays along with the 400 meters for the stout Dunbar track program.
