Lammert Gives A&M Visit High Marks
"I had a great visit. I got a good feel for the environment and the atmosphere of the university," Lammert said. "Texas A&M is very unique in its spirit and it's like no other school out there. The trip met and even exceeded my expectations."
Lammert had an eventful weekend. He really liked that the staff sat down with him and showed film of the team's style of play and specifically how he would be used in Coach Kennedy's offensive and defensive schemes.
"They want to push the ball and play an up-tempo style along with an aggressive, pressure defense," Lammert said. "They showed me how they would use me in the post-up, high-low, and pick-and-pop. My game fits a lot of what they are trying to do and that felt good. Coach Kennedy and his staff are good coaches."
The San Antonio native got a chance to take his game to the court and play some pick-up games with the current players. He was encouraged that he played well and clicked with many of the players on the court, and he saw where his talents could help the team in the future.
"Those guys were pretty good, but I was very impressed with how they played unselfishly and played as a team. You can tell they are well-coached," Lammert said. "The team has a lot of good 3-4's and 4-5's, and I can see where I can bring the skills of a pure No. 4 on the court."
While he was impressed with the basketball activities from the weekend, other aspects of the trip made a big impression on the rising 2012 prospect.
"I had a great time hanging out with the players and coaches. I got along well with them," Lammert said. "But I was also impressed with all of the resources for the players at the Bright Complex. I knew Texas A&M was big, but it's huge with everything they have to support its athletes. Kyle Field has an incredible game atmosphere and they let us watch part of the football game from the sideline."
While Lammert gave the Aggies high marks during his official visit, he is sticking with his plan to take the rest of his scheduled visits in September before making a final decision in early October.
"I'm going to Texas next weekend. I'll be talking to the coaches later this week to get my schedule, but I know they have a football game and we'll do most of the things you do on campus visits. I'm looking forward to it," Lammert said. "After Texas, I'm going to visit Texas Tech on September 24."
Lammert previously took a trip to Vanderbilt and he'll likely make a final decision on where he'll play college basketball the first week in October. He made it clear that he has no leaders at this point and he won't start narrowing his list until after taking at least these four visits, but indicated that his decision will likely come down to Vanderbilt, Texas A&M, Texas, and Texas Tech.
