The recruiting process for Doron Lamb is beginning to wind down. The five-star shooting guard from Oak Hill Academy via New York City, is only a few weeks away from making a decision, and he says that four schools remain in contention.
Playing in the McDonald's All-American Game has been a long-standing goal for the 6-foot-4 and 175-pound Lamb. Now that he is in Columbus taking part in the practices, he is just trying to have fun and show what he can do.
"It is an honor to be selected for the McDonald's game," said Lamb. "I have just been having a good time hanging out with my friends and playing basketball. I am just trying to stay calm and play my game."
While most of the players at the game are done with the high school season, Lamb and his Oak Hill teammates still have one tournament left, and he says he is ready to finish out the year strong.
"I know we lost three games, the last game we last was an upset in the Primetime Shootout," explained Lamb. "We are just trying to finish strong in this tournament."
When it comes to recruiting, Lamb says that four schools remain on his list.
"I am considering UConn, West Virginia, Kansas, and Kentucky," Lamb said when asked who was in contention for his services.
While Lamb doesn't know where he is going yet, he does know that he is going to decide in the next few weeks, and he will be doing it close to home.
"I am making my decision at the Jordan Classic on April 17 at home in New York," Lamb said.
Currently Lamb is still researching the schools on his list, and says he has several factors that will go into him picking his eventual school.
"I just want to go to a school that fits me and needs me to play right away," Lamb responded. "It is important that I go to a team with a strong coach and a winning program."
One thing that won't matter is what position he plays. He says shooting guard or point guard, either one works for him.
"That doesn't matter," said Lamb when asked if he has preference. "As long as I am out there playing it is all good."
While nothing is yet set in stone, soon enough one school will get the commitment of maybe the top pure scorer in the class.
