Lacy enjoys unofficial

Offensive lineman Kenny Lacy took an unofficial visit to Arizona this past weekend. Read on to see what stood out, where the Wildcats stand, and more.

The recruitment of Kenny Lacy continues to be a battle between a long list of football programs from every region of the country. From the SEC to the Pac-12, just about every major program has shown attention to the offensive lineman from Phoenix Mountain Pointe.

This past weekend, Lacy was in Tucson to watch his team in the 7-on-7 tournament and show support for his current teammates.

"I just watched my teammates play," Lacy said. "They did pretty well."

After observing the tournament, Lacy took the time to get better acquainted with the Arizona coaching staff. The offensive line prospect was able to speak with several coaches and discussed a myriad subjects.

"We talked about everything," Lacy said. "I talked to some of the defensive coaches about the defense they run. Coach Rodriguez and I just talked for a while about why most of the big time players leave the state and wanted to know what he can do to keep us in state."

Even after the discussion, Lacy remains undecided on whether he prefer to stay close to home or travel to another part of the country to go to college.

"I haven't decided that yet," Lacy said. "I am going to look at all of my options."

While Lacy was on his visit Tucson, he was able to experience a few things that were previously foreign to him, including the progress of the North End Zone project.

"I saw the new construction they have going on down there and it was also the first time I got to sit down and talk with those coaches," Lacy said.

For the type of competition battling for Lacy's commitment, the Wildcats should feel relatively confident with where they stand in his recruitment.

"I don't have a number, but Arizona is in my initial top ten schools," Lacy said.

Lacy's summer is bound to get busier as it progresses, as he has recently added a Pasadena visit to his to-do list.

"I will be going to UCLA on June 28th," Lacy said. "Other than that, I am not sure what I will be doing."

As far as a decision date, nothing has altered for Lacy. He will go through this summer and then the high school football season before he chooses where he will attend college.

"I still plan on deciding sometime in December, January or February," Lacy said.
