Former TCU center Eddie Lampkin Jr. commits to Colorado
Former TCU center Eddie Lampkin is committing to Colorado, according to sources. The 6-foot-11, 263-pound redshirt sophomore received other offers from Arkansas, Cincinnati, Florida, Georgetown, Memphis, and Xavier.
Lampkin averaged 6.3 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and 21.8 minutes per game through 24 appearances and 19 starts this past season. Plus, the Texas native shot 54.7% from the field and a career-best 55.8% at the foul line. The center finished eighth in the Big 12 for offensive rebounds (67).
Per multiple college basketball betting sites, TCU is not projected to have top-10 odds to win the national championship next season. However, for Monday night’s national championship game, No. 4 UConn is a seven-point favorite over No. 5 San Diego State.

“I’m going to Colorado,” Lampkin told 247Sports. “I committed because I love the coach. He called me and told me what I needed to hear. I like their players, I know KJ Simpson, one of my close friends plays on the team and I’ve been able to build a relationship with him and KJ. They’ve been helping me throughout.”
More importantly, Lampkin wanted to leave his home state. “My biggest thing was getting away from home and going somewhere with a strong strength and conditioning program,” added the former TCU center. “That’s my main focus, to get in the best shape possible so I can get to the next level. I also bond with coach [Tad] Boyle really well and his whole staff.
“I have a couple friends on the team, KJ [Simpson] and J’Vonne [Hadley]. And I told KJ a couple years ago that I’d love to be your teammate one day and he hit me up saying we need a big and someone who can change the culture.”
