The biggest concern for Greyson Lambert, the Wayne County quarterback, this summer is not recruiting, but getting back on the field. The 6’5” 195 lbs. signal caller got a stress fracture in his leg and is just worried about playing again.
“I got the stress fracture from running and conditioning too much,” said Lambert. “It started out as a shin splint but I didn’t give my leg time to heal so it got worse. I have finally gotten well enough to play so I will be playing for the first time this summer at a combine in Columbia (SC) that is coming up.”
Lambert has the size and the arm strength of a prototypical quarterback but will he fit into Clemson’s new offense?
“The coaches talk to me a lot about the new system. When I went up for the spring game I got to talk to Coach Morris a lot. The spread offense is usually only thought of as one option offense with zone reads and alot of quarterback running,” said Lambert. “There are a lot of different options in their offense. They said that there are many things they can do to make my style of play fit their offense.”
Lambert said he talks to Coach Morris and Coach Scott a good amount on facebook and on the phone, what else do they tell the standout QB.
“They talk to me about the influence of being a quarterback of Clemson, and how you are basically the face of the whole school. They just made it known that even though there are some new things at Clemson I’m still a target on their board”
Lambert holds 10 scholarship offers from many top programs like Alabama, North Carolina State and Miami, any favorites?
“Not yet, I want to take visits to all the schools I haven’t seen and build more relationships with coaching staffs then I will start to narrow things down,” said Lambert.
Lambert has a big senior season ahead of him, what goals does he have as a player?
“I want to become a better leader on my team. Last year we had a guy that was a vocal leader, I tried to lead more by example,” said Lambert. “This year I want to become a vocal leader. I also would like to cut down on mental mistakes and on the interceptions from last season.”
