Indianapolis lineman ready for U of L visit

Another committed player making his official visit this weekend will be Indianapolis Southport offensive lineman Skylar Lacy. He's been committed since early May and will visit the University of Louisville this weekend.

Indianapolis Southport offensive lineman Skylar Lacy has already been around the University of Louisville a lot since he committed in May.

Lacy spent time at U of L during a spring camp and then made the trip from Indianapolis for several games during the season.

The 6-foot-7, 305-pound Lacy will make the return trip this weekend for his official visit with the Cardinals. He'll be one of a handful of prospects making an official visit with Charlie Strong and his staff.

"It will be cool to be able to meet some of the other committed players and the guys that are not committed," Lacy said. "I don't know Terrence Ross or Derrick Calloway yet, so I am looking forward to meeting some of my future teammates."

Lacy, who left Southport High School last winter for Indianapolis Center Grove, returned to Southport and played for the school as a senior. He said the season "didn't go like we wanted" finishing with a 5-5 record.

"But it was great because I got to pay with all of my friends for one final season," Lacy said. "It was all kind of hectic but it was a lot of fun for me to play with friends. I wouldn't have wanted it any different"

Lacy played as a junior in high school at 280 pounds, so he's already picked up weight and is in the weight room trying to "get stronger before I get there." He said the coaches have told him once he signs that he would get a workout plan from U of L strength coach Pat Moorer.

"I know I need to get stronger and I need a lot of footwork stuff," he said.

Lacy said he's spent a lot of time talking to the U of L coaches, including line coach Dave Borbely, and said it's likely he'll redshirt as a freshman.

"They told me if you are one of the top seven (newcomers) then you will play," Lacy said. "I personally think a redshirt would help me, but we'll see. I know it helped a lot of the (freshmen this season). I just want to be ready when they need me to get on the field."
