Kenny Lacy is one of the best offensive tackles in all of College Football Recruiting 2013. Other than maybe Laremy Tunsil, he could be the most athletic tackle in the entire class.
Lacy has also been committed to the UCLA Bruins since September 10th. But if recruiting has taught us anything, it’s that there’s no sure thing until a player actually signs his letter of intent. Lacy has now decided where his last visit will be.
Lacy was scheduled to take his last official visit to Norman, Oklahoma to see the Sooners. Oh, how fast things change.
The standout tackle from Mountain Pointe High School in Phoenix, Arizona has now decided to nix that visit to instead go to Manhattan, Kansas, to see the Kansas State Wildcats. The Wildcats will be playing the Texas Longhorns December 1st, and that’s the game Lacy will be in attendance for.
Kansas State has really made a strong push for Lacy, who hadn’t given the Wildcats much of a chance when he first received their offer. But with the Wildcats superb play this year and their current ranking in the coaches poll (#3), Lacy has begun singing a different tune.
Charlie Dickey, the Wildcats offensive line coach, has played a big role in Lacy’s newfound interest, as well. Also, Lacy is well aware that both offensive tackle spots will be open for the 2014 season, as the current tackles will have graduated.
Lacy is interested in playing for a team that not only has a chance to play for the National Championship, but employs a run-first mentality.
Kansas State currently fits both of those needs. The Wildcats are 19th nationally in total rushing yards.
So now we just continue to play the waiting game. Lacy might not change his commitment status between now and signing day, but who knows who he’ll actually signs with when it comes to crunch time.
