  • Lamb Has Decided…And St. John’s is ‘Too Late’

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog

    NEW YORK — Doron Lamb says he’s already decided on a college and the rest of us will have to wait until Saturday night to find out.

    “I know where I’m going right now,” Lamb told SNY.tv Thursday at the Jordan Brand Classic practice at Sports Club/LA in Manhattan.

    “My family knows where I’m going, but nobody else knows where I’m going.”

    Lamb, a senior at Oak Hill (Va.) Academy, and Baltimore (Md.) Lake Clifton guard Josh Selby will both announce during the Jordan Game on ESPN2.

    “I have a top five of Arizona, UConn, Kansas, Kentucky and West Virginia,” Lamb said.

    (Check the video interview where he breaks down each school.)

    As exclusively reported here earlier this week, St. John’s coach Steve Lavin reached out to Doron’s father, Calvin Lamb, about Doron potentially taking the Johnnies’ last scholarship for 2010.

    But Doron said St. John’s came in “too late” to be considered.

    “I don’t even know, man. I think it’s too late,” he said. “They tried to reach out to me at Oak Hill. They talked to my parents, but I don’t know what happened with them. I think it’s too late.”

    A Queens, N.Y. native, Lamb won MVP honors last August at the Boost Mobile Elite 24 game at the Gauchos Gym and hopes to have a similar performance on Saturday.

    “Every time I play in New York City in an All-Star Game I always have a good game so I hope I have a good game this Saturday coming up,” he said. “I just want to play in front of my family and friends for the last time in a high school game.”
