Lamb made Oak Hill's trip an unofficial visit to West Virginia, and although he didn't get to see all of the campus, he did get to look over the basketball facilities at the Coliseum. He also planned a trip out with some of the players on the team. He listed some of the items that stood out about the Mountaineers on his visit.
"I learned that they play hard, and that they run the motion offense, and that their defense plays hard," said Lamb, who watched the Mountaineers rally from 12 points down to knock off Ohio State earlier in the day. "The coach is good, and he makes pros. They don't quit. They came back and won, and that surprised me."
Lamb has ties to several current Mountaineers. He played on the same team with Dan Jennings as a freshman, and knows of the other New Yorkers (Truck Bryant, Devin Ebanks and Kevin Jones) through AAU and other local competition. That should help in his recruitment by West Virginia, but it's not enough to seal the deal yet. Still, the good nucleus of players on the Mountaineer squad is a plus.
"I want to play with a good surrounding cast, because if you don't play with good players you aren't going to win, and I want to win," Lamb said.
Lamb had already taken an official to West Virginia, and is splitting his attention between Oak Hill's play and the recruiting process.
"I am thinking about colleges and my high school season," Lamb noted. "I am thinking about which college is best for me, and which coach fits me, and which coach can make me better. I have taken all of my official visits, and I came here (to West Virginia) as an unofficial visit, so I think I am done with visits. I am going to sit down with my family and pick a school.
Lamb has previously said that he plans to wait until late in the spring before making his decision. He is being recruited by WVU assistant Larry Harrison.
