BSD’s recruiting staff sat down for a roundtable on each prospect Penn State signed in the 2020 class. Coming in at No. 3 was four-star WR KeAndre Lambert-Smith.
What makes you excited about KeAndre Lambert-Smith?
“Lambert-Smith has the highest combination of ceiling/likelihood to reach that ceiling of any wideout in the class. He’s freaky quick, as good top-end speed, and has strong hands. If anyone in this wideout class is going to become a superstar, he’s the one.” --Clay
What worries you about KeAndre Lambert-Smith?
“Lambert-Smith needs to add size. 176 pounds is small for any receiver, but especially one like Lambert-Smith that checks in at 6-foot-1. Work will need to be done with Dwight Galt to add weight to his frame, which should not be an issue. However, some guys struggle to do this. So until Lambert-Smith adds the needed size it will be a concern.” --Marty
Do you think KeAndre Lambert-Smith will be redshirted next season? Around what point of his career do you think he pushes for meaningful playing time?
“Lambert-Smith is going to need a really productive offseason of adding mass, as he’s only 176 pounds right now. The good news? Lambert-Smith is enrolling early at Penn State, so he’ll have a winter, spring, and summer with Dwight Galt. Because of that — and mixed with his talent and a rather sparse wide receiver room in Happy Valley — I do think we’ll see Lambert-Smith get a green light in 2020.” --Patrick
