Texas A&M football set to host former star Penn State WR KeAndre Lambert-Smith this weekend

Texas A&M football has already put the recruiting world on notice with the high school talent they're bringing onto campus week in and week out. This weekend will be no different, as the visitor list already features one recruit atop their board, with several more doubtless to come.

Maybe the biggest visitor, however, will be from the transfer ranks. According to Matt Zenitz of 247Sports, the Aggies will be hosting Penn State WR transfer KeAndre Lambert-Smith from Saturday until Monday.

Lambert-Smith is a premier name in the portal this cycle. As the tweet above says, he led Penn State in receptions last year, and has the measurables that the Aggies need.

Long and rangy, Lambert-Smith isn't the most explosive guy, but he is a solid technician with his routes and can go up to high point passes with the best of them. Standing at 6'1", 185 LBs, he's not quite Noah Thomas, but he can provide a solid option across the field from #3, with guys like Moose and Jahdae Walker playing the inside/slot roles.

We can't go ahead and pencil him into the starting lineup just yet, however. The Auburn Tigers are set to host Lambert-Smith starting tomorrow, and the Aggies will have to weather that visit before they get him on campus.

For those of you who didn't follow the last portal cycle closely, the first visit proved to be a huge deal throughout the entire window. Prospects would come to campus with a slate of visits lined up, but once they got to College Station, they'd shut their recruitments down in favor of the Aggies. Conversely, if the Aggies were lower down on a certain list, they'd often not even get the visit that had been scheduled.

If the Aggies can get Lambert-Smith on campus, I feel good about their chances. Holmon Wiggins is one of the best in the business, and he'll have yet another chance to show his stuff here.
