The final piece of the 2024 classes offensive line commitments as he joins Peter Jones, Styles Prescod, and Anthonie Knapp. Lambert is the highest ranked prospect of the bunch, as he’s the No. 8 tackle and 117th overall prospect according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
After watching his junior film, it’s easy to see why many believe he is one of the best players in the country. Find out below what skills Lambert will bring with him to South Bend.

It’s great to see offensive lineman playing with an edge and Lambert does that. He plays with a nasty streak that you just can’t teach. It’s a big part of Lambert’s game, as he constantly defeats his opposition with his aggressive style of play.

Another good trait for a tackle to have is being able to use their length and punch to their advantage. Lambert’s long arms give him space to keep defensive linemen at bay, giving his quarterback time find open receivers. His punch is elite.

There are plenty of times when a prospect comes from a high school that is either run or pass heavy. Occasionally you see those players struggle at make the adjustment, but Lambert won’t have that issue. He’s equally adept at run and pass blocking.

You would expect a player that has Lambert’s pedigree to play left tackle for his team, but he primarily plays on the right side. The few reps that are on his highlight film aren’t bad at all, showing that he could play either side. If I had to guess, Lambert will end up as a right tackle, but certainly has the ability to play on the left.

For as talented as Lambert is, I doubt you see him make an impact right away. He dominates at the high school level, but as we all know, Massachusetts isn’t very well know for football. Most likely, he will take a redshirt to get a bit stronger, learn the system and adjust to the speed of this level. Lambert should still have a very successful Irish career, it wouldn’t surprise me at all to see him starting 2-3 years.
