LB Tre Lamar (6-4 240) of Roswell, GA is now up to 24 offers but his top five schools remain the same…Clemson, USC, Alabama, Tennessee and Mississippi State in no order. Lamar was one of the top juniors to attend Clemson’s junior day late last month. That was the latest of several visits he’s made to Clemson.
“This one was a lot more in depth,” Lamar said. “I got to see the moving parts of being a football player at Clemson. Clemson’s got a great engineering program and that really impressed me because I want to go into civil engineering.”
Lamar spent a lot of time with defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Brent Venables and that meeting only further enhanced their relationship.
“I’m close wit coach Venables and we have a good relationship,” Lamar said. “We talk a lot. I like how he uses his linebackers. He’s aggressive and blitzes them but will also drop them into coverage. He makes them into well rounded players.”
Lamar has been to USC twice and has regular contact with recruiter GA Mangus.
“South Carolina has got great facilities,” he said. “The football program is great. Coach Spurrier, coach Botkin and coach Mangus are great coaches. I’m going to try to get back there at some point.”
Lamar plans to attend a junior day at Alabama February 28th and will go to one at Auburn March 7th. He does not plan an early decision and will take some official visits. He’s also considering graduating early.
Lamar had 127 tackles and 4 sacks last season. He has committed to play in the Under Armour All American Game next January.
