He is already hearing from plenty of schools, including Rutgers, and is getting to pick the brains of a pair of high-level recruits from the 2011 class in linebacker Quinton Aston and receiver Damiere Byrd.
"They're telling me different things to look for, and I see how they handle things," Lambert said. "I see what they are going through."
At Rutgers, he took part in the Schiano Shootout 7-on-7 and got a look at the football facilities. He is dealing mostly with his recruiting coach, Phil Galiano, and knows a few things about the Scarlet Knights.
"They always have a good program," he said. "They've got good players. They've got a good conference. They play against some pretty good schools. Coach Galiano tells me their program is on the move, and they're making a lot of progress."
His trip to Maryland was also informative.
"I learned a lot about the linebacker skills needed for college, and I like their staff," Lambert said. "They motivate you, they help their players and I like the way they run their program with school and football."
South Carolina is also a program Lambert wants to find out more about, but he liked what he hears from the coaching staff.
"They're an upcoming school. They're getting a better team each and every year," Lambert said. "They go to a lot of bowl games. Their academics are good. They keep their players on track in school because that is first and foremost."
Lambert said all three schools talked about extending a verbal offer, but one is yet to come.
As a sophomore, Lambert registered 62 tackles, four sacks, two forced fumbles and broke up one pass.
