Louisville is a 'top school' for 2019 in-state standout Jacob Lacey from South Warren High School. Lacey has 10 offers in all.

South Warren High School standout 2019 prospect Jacob Lacey also plays baseball and wasn't able to make it to the University of Louisville spring game because he had a game that morning.

But Lacey still made his way to campus on Saturday.

Lacey arrived after the game and said U of L defensive coordinator Peter Sirmon, defensive line coach L.D. Scott and offensive line coach Mike Summers were waiting for him when he arrived late with his family.

"It was very cool for them to meet me so late," Lacey said. "That was the first time I've met coach Sirmon and he was excited about what I can do in his defense. Coach Scott speaks highly of coach Sirmon because he lets his assistants coach.

"Coach Summers is just awesome and just a calming figure, I met his wife also and she was wonderful."

Lacey said he met with the coaches for about 30 minutes and "definitely felt the love."

The 6-foot-2, 301-pound Lacey has been to U of L's campus several times before, including a few games last season.

Lacey said "Louisville is obviously one of my top schools."

U of L, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Penn State, Purdue, Kentucky, Tennessee, Cincinnati and Eastern Kentucky are his offers. Lacey said Duke, Virginia and Vanderbilt want him to visit, while Stanford, UCLA and USC have also been recruiting him hard.

"I've been to a lot of great schools," he said. "I've been very blessed with the offers that I have right now."

A recent standout at the Nike’s Opening Regional held at Cleveland Brown’s practice facility, Lacey said he's "close to making a list."
