Four-star linebacker Quanzell Lambert of Sicklerville (N.J.) Timber Creek took his first official visit last weekend to Northwestern, and then followed that up with his second official visit this weekend to Iowa to watch the Hawkeyes take on the Wildcats.
With Lambert, 6-foot-2 and 230-pounds, returning late Sunday night from his official visit to Iowa, Coach Rob Hinson discussed his star linebacker's weekend in Big Ten country.
"He got home at 11 last night, so he was a little tired today," said Coach Hinson.
During the visit, Lambert was able to meet up with a few South Jersey acquaintances.
"He enjoyed the game atmosphere a lot," said Coach Hinson. "He spent some good time catching up with Quinton Alston, and spent a lot of time with Mike Daniels.
Another acquaintance that Lambert has continued to strengthen is with his recruiting coach at Iowa.
"He already has a great relationship with Coach Wilson, and the visit just further solidified their relationship," said Coach Hinson.
Up next for Lambert is a visit to Nebraska on October 28th. Finishing up his official visit tour will be stops at Oklahoma and Alabama.
On the field, Lambert has helped Timber Creek to a 5-0 start.
"He has been the unquestioned leader of this team," said Coach Hinson. "He's only one of three returning defensive starters, so he's been a coach on the field."
Coach Hinson was happy to point out that Lambert is also a success away from the field.
"Off the field, he has been the face of the program in the papers, hallways and in the classroom," said Coach Hinson. "He has definitely done a great job of embracing the responsibilities that comes with being the leader."
