Choices. All college prospects eventually have to choose a school. Chandler (Az.) High RB/S Bryce Lamb has an even more daunting task. He has to choose a sport... or does he?
Lamb is not only one of Arizona's top triple jumpers, he is one of the world's best. He placed 8th at last year's junior nationals and broke Arizona's all-time best mark as a sophomore jumping over 51 feet. He topped that mark by going 52'2" this year (his mark was broken this year by Mt. Pointe junior Will Claye who went 52'4.75").
He is also a three-star prospect by Scout.com and holds offers from nine division-one programs. Cal was the most recent to offer. He tells us, "Cal offered last Friday. They are a real good program and are very big on school. They encourage players to go to summer school. They are a program I will seriously consider."
And the Bears have said Lamb (6-1 200) could compete in both sports. "I talked to Coach Gould and he said they have six other guys that run track."
In previous interviews, Lamb said he was unsure which sport he wanted to compete in college but he has made up his mind. "I definitely want to do both," he says.
This could benefit the Bear's recruiting as well as the fact that former Chandler teammates Marc Anthony and Cameron Jordan are on campus.
Lamb's other offers are from Washington State, Nevada, Air Force, Colorado, Northwestern, Arizona, Oregon State and Arizona State and more are sure to come in bith sports, but do not expect a decision any time soon, "I have not narrowed it down, it is still really early. I will probably narrow it down half way through my senior season, I just want to keep my eyes open until I do."
