Doron Lamb is coming off an official visit to Oklahoma this weekend and has several other visits planned.
The Queens, N.Y. native and Oak Hill (Va.) Academy guard will visit Kansas the weekend of Oct. 16 and a visit for Arizona is tentatively set for the weekend of Oct. 23.
“Then we’ll just have to wait and see what happens after that,” said his father, Calvin Lamb, who took the Oklahoma trip with his son.
St. John’s, UConn and Kentucky are also in the mix.
“He still wants to see Kentucky. You only get five [visits] so we’ll have to see,” Calvin said.
He added: “I don’t think he has a favorite right now.”
As for the Oklahoma visit, Calvin said all went well. Harrison Barnes, the No. 2 prospect in the Class of 2010, was also on the visit. Lamb and Barnes will be together again for the Kansas visit for “Late Night in the Phog.”
“It went well. It was nice. It was good,” Calvin said. “He didn’t [play with the team]. His coach [Oak Hill coach Steve Smith] didn’t want him to go out there and get hurt. He relaxed and watched them. It was smart.”
Still, anything can happen going forward.
“He was impressed with Oklahoma but things change. You see other campuses, you meet other players, the coaches. I wouldn’t say he has a favorite right now unitl he sees a couple more schools.”
ARIZONA GETS VISITORS
A number of elite recruits will visit Arizona for the Blue/Red Game Oct. 31: Quinn Cook, Alex Murphy, Angel Nunez and Arizona-bound guard Sidiki Johnson of St. Benedict’s Prep.
Ray McCallum will take an official visit that weekend.
Adreian Payne comes to campus Oct. 16-18 for an official and Gary Franklin Jr. is tentative for that weekend.
Terrence Jones is tentative for Oct. 23-25, as is Doron Lamb.Follow Adam Zagoria on Twitter.
