Four-star wide receiver KeAndre Lambert-Smith has committed to the Auburn Tigers after transferring from Penn State! He will have one final season of eligibility.


Who is KeAndre Lambert-Smith?

KeAndre is a six-foot-one, 185-pound four-star transfer wide receiver who has spent his last four seasons with the Nittany Lions. During his high school recruiting process, Lambert-Smith had fourteen power four offers (fifteen counting Notre Dame) but ultimately signed with Penn State over Texas A&M, Clemson, USC and NC State.

Since Joining Penn State as part of the class of 2020, Lambert-Smith has racked up 129 receptions for 1,721 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns.

For the past two seasons, Lambert-Smith has been top three on the Nittany Lions in receiving yards and even led the team last season.




What Impact Does This Commitment Bring the Tigers

This Commitment marks the thirteenth transfer addition of the off-season for coach Hugh Freeze. Now the Auburn Tigers have added five four-star plus wideouts to make up the 2024 class including five-star freshman Cam Coleman. The wide receiver room is much improved from last season and could produce the first 1,000-yard receiver since Ronney Daniels in 1999.

Last season Auburn had one of the worst passing offenses in the nation as they were ranked 121st nationally. Auburn fans hope this adds one more big play pass catcher to the roster to help relieve the pressure from Robert Lewis and Cam Coleman.



Scouting KeAndre Lambert-Smith

KeAndre is a quick but lengthy route-running specialist who will immediately challenge Lewis as the best route-runner on the team. He has good, strong hands that help him extend his body to make catches but most of the time he's a body catcher and lets the pass travel to his torso. At 6-foot-1, I wouldn't run him on the hash marks as he lets the ball fall too far and catches it at the lowest point rather than climbing the ladder and grabbing it at the highest point. He is more of a slot receiver as he's quick and shifty.
