Butler O-Lineman Lamm picks Appalachian State

Appalachian State now has three early commitments, and with the addition of Butler tackle Kendall Lamm following his visit last weekend, all three are economy-size offensive linemen.

Lamm has always been an ASU lean, liking Boone ever since he went to a camp there as a high school freshman. He was also offered by Marshall, Georgia Southern, Norfolk St. and Presbyterian.

I couldn’t reach Butler coach Mike Newsome this morning, but here is some of what Lamm told

“I thought about committing throughout the whole game (against Chattanooga), and every time I'm at App it just feels right. I love Appalachian State so much, and I felt like there was no reason to wait. I committed after they beat Chattanooga. I went with my high school team to an O-line camp at Appalachian when I was a freshman, and I have liked them ever since. It was one of the toughest camps I've been to. They pushed me to my maximum ability - no one else did that.”

Lamm also mentioned how much he liked offensive line coach Shawn Elliott.

We’ll have more on this—and Appalachian’s step up in recruiting—in a post later today.
