Meet Jeremy Lamb
Jeremy Lamb is a 6-5 and 165 pound shooting guard from Norcross, Georgia. He emerged on the scene with his superior play in the Peach Jam Classic and was recruited by Texas, Georgia, Clemson, Florida, and Indiana. He is a talented shooter and deadly from mid-range. His coach, Jesse McMillan, said, “We felt that any time we could get him the ball around the free throw line he was going to knock that bucket down.” Lamb has an ability to create his own shot, though still has work to do with working in traffic and shooting off the dribble. He has a wiry frame, with a 7-4 wingspan and could use some more weight, but it is his ability to shoot the rock that has most UConn fans salivating. He hit 42.6 percent from deep and isn’t afraid to take big shots. Lamb has the ability to take a verbal lashing from his coach and use that as motivation on the court, which will come in handy with Calhoun’s coaching style.
