Here is what Lamb had to say to Scout Recruiting Analyst Greg Biggins about his Penn State visit last month:

"We toured the weight room, sat in on some defensive meetings, specifically the linebacker meetings and met the whole coaching staff there. From there, we went to Coach Franklin's office and had a nice sit down meeting with him. He kind of picked my brain a little and asked me about location, if i would be willing to leave home to play college ball and asked what I wanted in a school. Then he told me I had a scholarship offer and it was pretty overwhelming. My dad and I were both really excited, I'm not sure who was more excited but it was a great moment for both of us."

Lamb had a chance to connect with the staff even more after his meetings with the coaches. 

"After the meeting, we went to dinner with the whole coaching staff and had a really good time," Lamb said. "Coach Franklin is an awesome guy, it was weird to sit down and meet with him face to face after seeing him on T.V every weekend. I come from a pretty big PSU family so it was a lot of fun to meet Coach Franklin and the rest of the staff in person.

"The following day I watched the team practice and that was great too. I was really impressed by how intense it was. All of the guys take on the drills full speed and the scrimmage at the end was awesome too. The players and coaches all treated it like a real game and took it seriously, that really stood out for me."
