Skylar Lacy has picked up weight, grown an inch, has a new school and is anxious to get onto the field for his senior season.
The 6-foot-7, 305-pound Lacy is one of the top players in the state of Indiana and will play his senior season at Greenwood, Ind., Center Grove.
"I just can't wait," Lacy said. "We are going through two-a-days right now and I am just excited to get everything going. I had to get stronger and my new school has a great weight program, so I've done that.
"I moved at the start of the semester in January and now it's time to play some real football. Words can't describe how I feel right now."
Lacy, who committed to Louisville in early May, played at 250 pounds as a sophomore and 280 last season at Southport High School.
"I didn't really know what weight I wanted to be but I gained about 25 pounds and it's been good," Lacy said. "I feel really good and a lot stronger."
Center Grove runs a wing-T offense and Lacy said he believes that will help him improve his technique, but he notes it's tough to learn.
"I tried to get acclimated with the offense and my teammates," he said. "But I still have my days. Some days are great and some days are bad days. I am getting there, I just need to pick up my speed on getting to the backers."
Lacy, who is a hard-nosed player with a lot of upside, said he still hears from other schools but is "100 percent committed to Louisville."
"It's cool," he said. "I committed and got it out of the way, and once I committed at the start of summer my focus was on my school team.
"(Fellow U of L commits) Kyle (Bolin) and Keith (Towbridge) and I talk a lot and I really like those guys. The person I was closest too was (DeAndre Herron) who was in the Class of 2012 and from Avon (Ind.) but now he has to go to JUCO.
"I hate that for him because we're close. I was looking forward to playing with him when I got to Louisville. But I am still committed. I think I'll probably make it down for every home game. It's not too far."
