Lammert Set to Visit Texas A&M

The new coaching staff at Texas A&M welcomes its first group of official basketball visitors to College Station this weekend. One of those visitors will be SA Churchill post Connor Lammert. Aggie Websider's David Sandhop spoke to the big man about his upcoming visit and what's in store for the rest of his recruitment

When the Aggie football team opens up the 2011 season against SMU to a sold-out Kyle Field, there will be two basketball recruits in attendance on official visits. One of those prospects will be San Antonio Churchill (TX) post Connor Lammert who emerged on the radar of many college coaches with a big AAU season with the D-1 Amabassadors.

"I'll be at Texas A&M this weekend for my official visit," Lammert said. "I'm coming in Saturday afternoon and I'll be there through Monday."

The 6-foot-10, 220-pound versatile big man gained attention this summer going head-to-head at several tournaments against national Top 15 prospect and Texas commit Cameron Ridley. Despite giving up a lot of weight to Ridley, Lammert showed surprising strength in the paint and used his superior inside-outside game to impress observers and college coaches.

The San Antonio product has quickly narrowed his list of schools and has scheduled four official visits. Last week he traveled to Nashville to visit Vanderbilt and was very impressed with what he saw.

"It was a great visit," Lammert said. "I liked the players and Coach Stallings is a great coach, and the academics are very good."

Lammert will also visit the Texas Longhorns on 9/10 and he'll finish the recruiting process with a visit to Lubbock and Texas Tech on 9/24. But for now, he's focused on his trip to Texas A&M and he's very familiar with the school.

"My brother went to Texas A&M and I attended a lot of football and basketball games growing up and I know the traditions," Lammert said. "I like Coach Kennedy and the style of play he's bringing to the program."

Lammert claims no leaders at this point and wants to take all four official visits before sitting down with his family in early October to make a final decision.
