Lammert set for visit to Tech

San Antonio (Texas) Churchill power forward Connor Lammert is headed to Lubbock on Thursday for an unofficial visit to Texas Tech.

"I just came up to Fort Worth from Baylor, and I'm here to visit SMU and TCU now," Lammert said. "Then I'm flying out to Lubbock on Thursday morning to visit Texas Tech. I'm looking forward to the opportunity to get to know the guys there a little better."

Lammert will also have an opportunity to visit his brother Clark, who has been in Lubbock as a walk-on member of Coach Gillispie's team.

"From what I hear things have gone pretty well for Clark since he's been at Tech. He's told me a lot about how it is there," he said. "Besides what I've learned from the coaches, I've gotten the rest of my information from Clark. I think he's enjoyed it so far."

Aside from Tech, Lammert indicated that he's been hearing from Stanford, Vanderbilt, Texas, and Texas A&M the most. The 6-foot-9, 215-pounder doesn't believe distance will factor into his decision.

"I'm probably going to go visit those guys, but it's looking like I'll probably stay in Texas. I'm not sure yet," Lammert said. "Distance isn't really a factor, though. I'm just looking for the right fit for me and it doesn't really matter if it's close to home or not. I'll just have to go with my gut."

So far, Lammert has developed a solid relationship with the staff in Lubbock.

"I've been talking with the coaches at Tech basically as often as the rules will allow. I've got a pretty good relationship with Coach Billy Gillispie and he's been at all of my games. Coach Chris Walker has been to a lot of my games as well. They've shown me a lot of interest for sure," he said. "Coach Gillispie has told me a lot about what their style of play will be like, so I've got a good feel for what he wants out of his team I think. I'm looking forward to the visit this week and I think our relationship can gain a lot after I'm there in person."

Lammert currently holds offers from Baylor, Oklahoma State, SMU, TCU, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and Vanderbilt.
