Lambert senior Austin Deckard announced his verbal commitment Thursday evening to play basketball for Georgia College.

Deckard, a wing, is a two-time all-county selection – honorable mention in 2016 and first team in 2017 when he averaged 10.1 points, 4 rebounds and 2 steals a game to help the Longhorns go 24-5 and reach the second round of the Class 7A state playoffs. Deckard and Lambert are currently 18-5 overall and 7-2 in Region 5-7A going into Friday’s regular season finale against Forsyth Central.

Deckard would join a Georgia College program that is 10-10 overall and 6-8 in Division II’s Peach Belt Conference.
