Florida leads for Lambert

Milledgeville (Ga.) Georgia Military College defensive end Davonte Lambert officially visited Florida this weekend and came away impressed.

“It was great all weekend,” Lambert said. “I really loved everything about Florida. Trenton (Brown) was my host but we spent a lot of time with Abu (Lamin) and Damien (Jacobs).  It was awesome to hang out with those guys and see Trenton again. Abu is a nice guy and I actually got to see his film and he’s a good player. It would be nice to play with him and have both of us rushing the passer. I’m a defensive end and he’s a tackle but they want me to play some three technique as well.”

Much like Abu Lamin the 6-foot-3, 275-pound Lambert said he came close to committing to Florida also.

“Florida is my leader,” Lambert said. “Committing definitely crossed my mind a few times but I promised other schools I would visit and I don’t like to break my promises. I promised Tennessee and Auburn I would visit them so I will and Arkansas is trying to get me to visit but I don’t know if I will visit them or not. I visited Georgia last weekend and I plan to visit Florida for a game hopefully.”

While at Florida, Lambert got a chance to sit down with Will Muschamp and defensive line coach Brad Lawing.

“Coach (Will) Muschamp says he loves me,” Lambert said. “He was basically just talking to me about my playing style and how I would fit in and stuff. He’s a real nice guy. I also got to talk to coach Lawing and he was telling me the same thing. I like him a lot too and we have a good relationship together.”

Lambert says he plans to make his decision either in August or early September.
