Is Lamar Interested in the Hometown Team?

Lindsey Lamar, running back from Hillsborough HS, is having a breakout season with over 1,000 yards in just 7 games. Lindsey talks to USFNation.com about who his leaders are, what visits he plans on taking and when he'll make a decision. Find out if the Bulls are in the picture and what ACC team leads for the 5'9 speedster. Read on for the details.

Ever since the departure of Ean Randolph the Bulls have not been able to replicate the electric playmaking ability Randolph brought to the field. This year the South Florida staff is hoping hometown star Lindsey Lamar can be that guy.

This season Lamar has rushed for 1,045 yards on 85 carries and 17 touchdowns. He also runs track and as a junior he was the regional track championship in both the 100 (10.35) and 200 events. At 5-foot-9, 170 pounds Lamar projects at both RB and slot receiver. He credits his breakout year to the work that he did 7 months ago during the spring.

"I worked hard this offseason and stayed committed to getting better."

With half of his season complete, Lindsey has turned his focus to recruiting. He has taken one visit to Wake Forest and has two more scheduled, South Carolina on 11/7 and Duke on 12/5. Lamar is also being recruited by his hometown team the USF Bulls.

"I'm going to visit USF too, they're right in my backyard and I've been following them all year. USF right there at the top of my list."

Speaking of lists, Lindsey told USFNation he's narrowed it down to 4.

"Its Wake Forest, South Florida, South Carolina and Duke."

"Wake is my number one, they're the only school I've visited. I was there for the game against Navy. I like the family atmosphere on campus and the fact that they like small, fast backs for their offense."

When it comes to picking an offense, Lamar makes it simple.

"I'm not looking for any offense in particular. I'm looking for the offense that will get the ball in my hands."

Getting the ball doesn't necessarily have to be as a runningback, Lamar says he's open to playing in the slot and having the kick/punt return duties. He plans on making a final decision after his season is over and he has the opportunity to take a few more visits. He has taken one visit and has two scheduled. He says he's working on setting his 4th and final visit, which will be to South Florida. Once a visit is set USFNation will have another update with the Hillsborough HS star, stay tuned.
