Lampkin pulls the trigger
"I like the SEC conference. I like what I saw in the championship game. Even though they lost, I saw a lot of potential there. I saw a lot of great players that I would love to be on the same team with and kinda learn from. That's another reason why I decided to play for Arkansas."
Lampkin is being recruited by Arkansas' defensive line coach Tracy Rocker.
"I liked the fact that my recruiter was actually my position coach," Lampkin said. "He was very interested in me and he acted like he really wanted me to play for them."
"I've never visited their campus, so that's what I'm going to do next. I'm going to take an official visit there on January 12th."
Lampkin played at both defensive end and defensive tackle for Tucker High School this season. Coach Rocker did not specify which position on the defensive line Lampkin will play for the Razorbacks.
"I feel like I can play anywhere that they want me to play," said Lampkin. "They can put me at defensive end or defensive tackle. It really doesn't matter to me. I just want to go up there and play football."
Lampkin had a couple of offers prior to Arkansas. Southern Miss and East Carolina had already offered the 6-foot-4, 240-pound Scout.com two-star prospect.
