After offering Oklahoma Sooners wide receiver commit Charleston Rambo last week, the Texas Longhorns offered another Sooners wide receiver pledge on Thursday — Richmond Foster’s CeeDee Lamb:
The 6’2.5, 172-pounder committed to Oklahoma in late July after camping in Austin in June. It was Lamb’s second pledge to the Sooners, as he originally committed last December, then re-opened his recruitment after seeing his stock take off during the spring.
One thing to note about Lamb — he clearly had an excellent rapport with quarterback pledge Chris Robison when the two worked out at the Houston The Opening Regional camp in March. In fact, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that the combination was unstoppable that day, leading to plenty of celebrations between the two.
The moment carried into the 2016 high school football season for Lamb. After recording 11 touchdowns and piling up 1,082 receiving yards in 2015, Lamb has been as unstoppable this season as he was that day working with Robinson — 90 catches for 1,911 yards and 32 touchdowns.
Given that production, Foster is unsurprisingly undefeated and set to face Temple on Saturday in San Marcos in the 5A Division I semifinals.
Lamb is currently ranked as a consensus four-star prospect, the No. 222 player nationally, the No. 30 wide receiver, and the No. 38 player in Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. Expect him to make a jump in those rankings before National Signing Day.
At that event in Houston, Lamb ran a 4.60 40-yard dash, a 4.40 shuttle, and posted a 31.6-inch vertical leap.
