Lacy, Others Looking Forward To Visits

It will be more of an introduction weekend as Oklahoma State will welcome 18 recruits, all committed, along with their families for their official visit weekend. Even new mid-year arrivals on campus like quarterback Mason Rudolph and running back Devon Thomas will host visiting recruits. One of the 18 commitments that will be on hand is All-State receiver Chris Lacy out of DeSoto, Texas.

"Yes, I'm looking forward to it," Lacy said of the weekend. "I'm looking forward to meeting the other guys in the class that I will be spending the next four years with. Then I want to get used to Stillwater and check out as much as I can."

Lacy earned Associated Press Sports Editors Honorable Mention All-State honors with a strong senior season that included 60 receptions for 1,206 yards and 16 touchdowns for a team that lost a thrilling semifinal game in the playoffs to eventual state champion Allen. He will be driving to Stillwater on Friday with his parents.

Lacy admitted that he has followed the recruiting for Oklahoma State and players in the class, especially the quarterback.

"Yeah, Mason Rudolph, I spoke to him on Twitter," Lacy said. "My coach showed me who my quarterback was going to be in the recruiting class and I looked him up and then hit him up on Twitter. I was keeping up with him and he had a pretty good season down there winning state.

"This will be a new experience for me because at DeSoto we had Desmon White as quarterback. He's really athletic and fast but he is not as tall. He's a smaller athletic quarterback," Lacy explained. "Now I will have a taller quarterback (Rudolph) who can see me downfield."

Lacy said he chose Oklahoma State because of the environment, the success that receivers in the program have enjoyed in the offense, and the family feeling he got from the coaching staff.

He said his senior season was exciting for him because he went from having the reputation of being a possession-type receiver to using his speed and getting open on more deep routes. He averaged almost 19 yards a reception this season.

As far as this recruiting weekend, one more thing he is looking forward to is the meals. "Whatever they are serving," he added. "They said they are paying for everything, so I've heard about Eskimo Joe's. I'd really like to try that."

No doubt, Lacy isn't the only one of the 18 visitors headed to Stillwater this weekend that has heard of and is looking forward to a special and some cheese fries at Eskimo Joe's. I would guess it might be on the itinerary.
