Eddie Lampkin, a four-star big man prospect out of the 2020 college basketball recruiting class, has committed to play for the TCU Horned Frogs.
This news was relayed to the masses on the mean streets of Twitter by Stockrisers and Rivals reporter Jake Weingarten, who was also told by the young man, “I always felt at home, I knew since day one it felt that way.”
Prior to this huge get for Jamie Dixon, the youngster released his final five potential landing sports. Those schools were the Seton Hall Pirates, Arkansas Razorbacks, Texas A&M Aggies, Western Kentucky Hilltoppers and TCU Horned Frogs.
As for Eddie Lampkin, a talented big man, not all reputable recruiting service outlets agree that he’s a four-star. Some do have Eddie Lampkin as a three. As an example, 247Sports not only have him as a three-star, but outside their top-200 board.
There’s clearly some disconnect with how a reporter like Weingarten views Eddie Lampkin and how some of the recruiting outlets do. As noted previously when there’s been slight disagreement with a player’s star ratings, CBBToday prefers to take the lower grading (if there’s not a majority agreement) to avoid the idea of sensationalizing for clicks. If we sensationalize, it’s for hugs and high-fives.
Nevertheless, Eddie Lampkin committing is a huge get for the TCU Horned Frogs.
