Lambert (6-1, 195), who is also a track standout, is the son of former John Ehret player and head football coach Corey Lambert Sr.
A senior, Lambert had 22 offers including from Air Force, Army, Austin Peay, Columbia, Dartmouth, Duke, Florida Atlantic, Harvard, Illinois, Memphis, Purdue, Southern Miss and Tulane, among others.
“I chose Nevada because it was a good fit,” Lambert said. “I felt comfortable with the school athletically, socially and academically. I liked the campus, the city and the staff. Everything felt like it fit into place with me. My football IQ is one of my biggest strengths and provide run support. My versatility and athleticism are clear assets.”
Lambert feels the experience he is gaining at Brother Martin is invaluable.
“Brother Martin prepares you for everything, mentally, physically, socially and in the classroom,” Lambert said. “Our coaches prepare us very well for college life, college football and becoming great men.”
Having a father who has played, been recruited and coached proved to be a huge asset for Lambert.
“My father took the process out of my hands so I wasn’t so bombarded with it and it wasn’t time consuming,” Lambert said. “He really just took care of everything for me so I could just be a regular kid. I wanted to commit early and play out my senior season without having to worry about it. I felt it was time.”
There was a tremendous tie to Lambert with Nevada.
Wolf Pack coach Jay Norvell was the quarterback coach of Lambert Sr. at Iowa State.
Brother Martin coach Mark Bonis gushed with praise for Lambert.
“Corey is the most versatile defensive player we’ve ever coached,” Bonis said. “What sets him apart is he can play three or four positions, either safety or linebacker spot. He has such a high football IQ and is a student of the game. He is the first one in and the last one to leave. He is a wonderful person. He’s a great football player but a better young man. He has a sense of urgency with everything he does.”
Lambert’s brother, Torey, is an outstanding junior running back at Brother Martin who is getting attention in recruiting as well.
