DeSoto Standout Lacy Visits OSU

The city of DeSoto in Texas has been a hotbed for college football talent as the DeSoto High School Eagles have sent players all over the country to play college football. They have another talented senior class this fall that includes wide receiver Chris Lacy.

Lacy, who has offers from Arizona State, BYU, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Northwestern, and Oklahoma State, is also being recruited by Arkansas, Ohio State, TCU and Texas A&M as well.

He was in Stillwater on Monday checking out the Cowboys, the facilities and the campus.

One major question about Lacy was answered by simply seeing him. He has been listed at 6-1, 6-2 and 6-3, and we will definitely go with 6-3. He is listed at 185 pounds and with running a 4.45 forty. You can say he looks the part.

He felt the same about Oklahoma State.

"I liked it, I mean I really liked it," said Chris Lacy. "The facilities are amazing and then on the tour we went to the engineering school and it was amazing too."

Lacy is a good student and said he was considering mechanical engineering for a major. "I was but they said that majoring in mechanical engineering could really interfere with practice," explained Lacy. "I could major in mechanical engineering technology and that would work."

Lacy was in Stillwater with his mother and his sister, and they toured the entire athletic facilities including watching some of the workout with the current players in the brand new Sherman Smith Indoor Training Center.

Lacy spent a lot of time meeting with the coaches, especially wide receivers coach Kasey Dunn and head coach Mike Gundy. He also had a chance to see Taylor Lewis, a freshman cornerback from DeSoto who he knows well.

"I don't know what I'm doing the rest of the summer or whether I will visit any more schools," said Lacy, who has camped with Houston and Texas A&M.

Lacy did not give a timetable on his decision. Oklahoma State is looking for its first commitment from a wide receiver in the 2014 class. The Cowboys have 11 commitments so far in the class.
