Doron Lamb | “He’s An Assassin. A Master of Quiet Domination”

Meet Doron Lamb. The newest Thoroughbred in the stable known as Kentucky. Trainer John Calipari is at it again, signing what might end up being the best freshman back court in the country as Lamb joins the highly talented Brandon Knight.

Zach Brazziler of The New York Post provides the following update on Doron:

“I will be a Kentucky Wildcat,” the Oak Hill Academy (Va.) star and Queens native said.

“It’s a dream come true. He knows what to do with guards,” Lamb said of Calipari. He later added: “We’re going to do the same thing they’re doing. We’re going to do what we do and just to win next year.”

Talent evaluator Tom Konchalski considers Calipari’s new backcourt “terrific,” but wasn’t sure the two are “one and done” players like Bledsoe and Wall, considered the top pick in the draft. He is high on Lamb, known for his pull-up jump shot and quick first step.

“He’s an assassin,” Konchalski said. “A master of quiet domination.”

Lamb led Oak Hill to a 29-4 record, seventh in USA Today’s national rankings. Arguably his finest moment for the powerhouse came in an 84-81 loss to St. Peter’s Prep (N.J.) in the prestigious Primetime Shootout. He scored 49 points that night, second all-time in the tournament right behind LeBron James’ 52 on Feb. 9, 2003.

“It seemed like he scored every time down the floor for us,” Oak Hill coach Steve Smith said then.

A McDonald’s All-American, the 6-foot-4 Lamb developed into a national prospect at Oak Hill after two years at Bishop Loughlin in Brooklyn. He is third-highest rated shooting guard in the Class of 2010 by Scout.com and 30th prospect overall, but he also got ready for college.

“He matured the past two years,” his mother, Brigitte, said. “He can wash his own clothes now.”

With the on-going rumors of Darnell Dodson’s possible transfer, Kentucky needs a good shooting guard. Someone that can handle the Eric Bledsoe role and add to the motion known as The Dribble Drive offense. D

oron Lamb is that man and with the reality that both Doron and Knight both could be two year players, Kentucky’s future continues to look brighter and brighter.
