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 MountaineerIllustrated.com:
“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.
