Lampkin's waiting game begins
It's just an hour's drive west for Omaha Central's Teddy Lampkin. It's one he's made more than a few times as he has visited the campus in Lincoln unofficially, quite a bit now. But this was Junior Days, the first of the year for the Huskers. It was a chance where players from all over the country had a chance to listen to some coaches and then sit down with their potential position coach. Lampkin currently sits on two offers, one from Kansas State, the first team to offer him, while the other is from Iowa State. For the 5-9 speedster, this was kind of an anxious visit, because it was for all intents and purposes, a way to find out just what the Husker coaches thought of him. Well, Lampkin got the lowdown to an extent, as he sat in with Wide Receivers Coach Ted Gilmore. "He said that they need to sit down as a staff and talk about me. They want to figure things out, and then they will go from there," Lampkin said. "They said they should know by Monday just what they are going to do." It's a couple of days away until then. But Lampkin admitted that it could end up feeling longer. "Yeah, it will probably be a bit slow, just because you want to know," he said. But even if Monday comes and the offer does indeed come through, Lampkin said that he's not certain a decision would be following closely. "I still need to make sure about everything, take some visits and know where I want to go. I mean, I wanted that offer and it would be tough not to commit. But I have to make sure about my decision and not just do it, because it's Nebraska," he said. If you remember, Lampkin ran the fastest 40-yard time down in San Antonio for this year's U.S. Army All-American Combine, where more than 400 kids from around the country attended. Teddy reeled off an eye-popping 4.37 on the spongy turf of the Alamo Bowl. The two offers he's received have come since that time. We're betting there will probably be a few more. Stay tuned to the Red Zone as we will have much more from Junior Days today.
