Lamb Talks UW Visit, Future Plans

2018 Great Oak (Temecula, Ca.) LB Jack Lamb was at UW's spring practice on Monday and he updated Dawgman.com about his time on campus and what his near future holds...


"My dad and I flew up this morning and came up to practice," Lamb said. "I'm actually going to go back tomorrow morning and meet with coach (Bob) Gregory and coach (Chris) Petersen.

"When I was up there, I didn't get the chance to really sit down with them and talk, but I did get to go to a team meeting and got a tour of the facilities and I watched their practice. They really get after it and the defense really set the tone of practice, so it was a great opportunity for me to see how they operate and what it was like to be a player there."


Washington offered Lamb a little over a month ago and he currently holds 16 offers including UCLAOregonCaliforniaWashington StateArizona StateBaylor and Boise State among others.

Last weekend, Lamb and his entire family visited Stanford on Saturday and then on Sunday, Lamb, his father and sister all headed to Cal to check out what the Golden Bears had to offer.

"Those were both really good visits," Lamb said. "I actually got home on Sunday night (from Berkeley) and then we headed out to the airport first thing this morning to come up (to Seattle).

"After I meet with the coaches tomorrow, I will head down to Oregon and then from there, I will head out to Penn State with my dad and spend the weekend out there."

Lamb doesn't hold offers from either Stanford or Penn State, but with his family ties to PSU, he's hoping for some good news while he's out in Western Pennsylvania.

"My mom and dad both went there and my mom was a swimmer there, so we definitely have some ties there," Lamb said. "I don't want to jinx anything, so I will just say I am hopeful of getting an offer from them.

"I've never been out there before, so it'll be really cool to get out there and see what they are all about and what they have to offer."

Lamb said that ideally he would like to make his decision shortly before the start of his senior season, but said he won't rush into anything.

When he's ready to make his decision, he's already thought about what he'll be looking for from the school he chooses.

"Academics are for sure the number one thing for me," Lamb noted. "Football doesn't last forever, so I want to make sure I'm set up for the rest of my life once I am done with football.

"Another thing I will be looking for is the future of the program. Is it heading up or trending down? Do they have a bright future or is there more questions about where it's headed? Stuff like that will be big, plus obviously location and climate, I don't care about the cold weather too much, but obviously it's something you have to look at and I also want a chance to talk to the players that are with the program because they will really give you the best feel for what it's like to be part of the program and being a student athlete there."

As a junior last season, Lamb posted a team-leading 117 tackles to go along with 18 tackles-for-loss, four sacks and one interception.

We'll have more on Lamb in the coming weeks and months as he continues to work his way through the recruiting process and we will update news on him as it happens.
