Lacy to Oklahoma State

DeSoto (TX) wide receiver Chris Lacy secures the 17th spot in the Oklahoma State Cowboys' 2014 class, a group that includes eight fellow Lone Star prospects.

It was following his June visit to Stillwater that Chris Lacy knew.

"I loved it. Everything. Love the coaches, the offense, the campus, the facilities. Everything," Lacy said. "The facilities and the engineering school are amazing."

Lacy, who brings a weighted 4.9 GPA and was ranked third in his class upon the completion of last school year, plans on majoring in mechanical engineering technology.

On the visit, he, his mother and his sister toured the entire athletic facilities and were able to take in a workout with the current players in the brand new Sherman Smith Indoor Training Center.

Lacy spent a lot of time meeting with the coaches, primarily with wide receivers coach Kasey Dunn and head coach Mike Gundy. He also had a chance to see former teammate and freshman cornerback Taylor Lewis.

"They all say they like my physicality and how I use my hands," said Lacy. "Once the coaches found out about my grades, they said that topped it all off and they were sold."

At 6-foot-3, 185 pounds, Lacy certainly looks the part, and can back it up, taking 29 key catches for 339 yards and three scores last season.

He selected Oklahoma State over offers from Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa, Northwestern, Arizona State and Kansas.

With this, Lacy joins James Washington of Stamford, Texas as the second receiver in the 2014 CLASS.
