Doron Lamb Considering a Few Schools; Joseph Visiting UT; Wroten Likes ‘Cuse
Calvin Lamb, the father of Oak Hill (Va.) guard Doron Lamb, says his son will probably take official visits to Kansas, Kentucky, Oklahoma and Arizona and possibly St. John’s as well.
“I could say I think Kansas, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Arizona. Them four I guess I would say. St. John’s, I guess. He was kind of impressed with them,” Calvin said.
Coaches from all five schools have had in-homes with Doron’s parents in Queens and also visited Doron at Oak Hill.
Arizona head coach Sean Miller and assistant Book Richardson, who coached Lamb when he was with the New York Gauchos AAU program, visited Lamb for a second time Wednesday.
Oak Hill coach Steve Smith has also mentioned that UConn is in the mix for Lamb, the No. 3 shooting guard and No. 21 prospect in the Class of 2010.
While the Arizona coaches were in Mouth of Wilson, Va., St. John’s head coach Norm Roberts had an in-home with the family Wednesday night.
“It all went well. They’re hoping Doron stays home. It will be a good thing for him to stay in the city,” Calvin said.
And Oklahoma’s Jeff Capel was in Tuesday.
“It was good. It was nice. [He would be] just filling in being that missing piece that they need. That they’ll be a good situation for him,” Calvin said.
Calvin said no official visits have yet been planned.
“We’ve gotta sit down and talk to his coach, see if he’s free,” he said.
