The recruiting process slowed down a bit this spring for quarterback Greyson Lambert of Jesup (Ga.) Wayne County.
But that wasn't by design.
The 6-fot-5, 195-pound Lambert sustained a stress fracture in his left leg in March, missed spring practice and wasn't able to compete in any camps.

"That kind of slowed me down," Lambert said.
Today, Lambert is almost completely recovered from the injury. He's allowed to throw, but doctors don't want him running or doing any "heavy contact stuff with the leg" yet.
"I'd say I'm about 90 percent right now," Lambert said. "I'm still in a boot, but I'm using that mostly to walk around in. I'm excited to get back into it."
To date, Lambert has 10 offers. He claims no leaders and maintains that he is open, but added that Clemson, which recently gained a commitment from quarterback Chad Kelly, "is out."
Who's recruiting Lambert the hardest?
"I got offered by South Carolina during the spring," Lambert said. "Since then, they've been sending me a lot of mail at the house. And I've talked to them on the phone a good bit. I've been talking with N.C. State a lot, and also Alabama and Virginia."
Lambert recently visited the Wolfpack and Gamecocks.
"Last weekend, I went to N.C. State on Friday and South Carolina on Saturday," Lambert said. "N.C. State was a camp. South Carolina was more of a visit, but I threw for [quarterbacks coach G.A]. Mangus. We went in the stadium and threw. I feel like I did all right. I wish I would have made better throws here and there but overall I did pretty good."
What's next for Lambert?
I'm going to Alabama on the 18th (of July) and South Carolina on the 21st," Lambert said. "Those are the two I know I'm going to.
According to Lambert, a trip to Arkansas also is in the works.
"I really want to take as many visits as I can in July before I name my leaders," Lambert said.
