Ashton Lampkin has battled through injuries throughout his career at Oklahoma State, missing most of the 2014 season with an ankle injury, and missing time last season as well. Now, Lampkin is back for his senior campaign and is the leader of a young and hungry group of corners. Despite the difficulties he’s faced, Lampkin has proven to be a standout defensive back and OSU fans have reason to be excited for his upcoming season.
People outside the program are taking notice of Lampkin as well, as he was recently included in College Football’s Top 50 Underrated Players by Athlon Sports and now, according to ESPN guru Todd McShay, considered one of the top defensive back prospects for next year’s NFL draft.
