He is also a three-star prospect by Scout.com and holds offers from nine division-one programs. Cal was the most recent to offer. He tells us, "Cal offered last Friday. They are a real good program and are very big on school. They encourage players to go to summer school. They are a program I will seriously consider."
And the Bears have said Lamb (6-1 200) could compete in both sports. "I talked to Coach Gould and he said they have six other guys that run track."
In previous interviews, Lamb said he was unsure which sport he wanted to compete in college but he has made up his mind. "I definitely want to do both," he says.

I will probably narrow it down half way through my senior season, I just want to keep my eyes open until I do."
