Recruiting: Jacob Lacey

Jacob Lacey, a defensive back prospect from Garland (Texas) Naaman Forest, came away from his weekend visit to Oklahoma State impressed. Although the 5-foot-10, 170-pounder said Sunday night he is still committed to Kansas.

"I liked it a lot," said Lacey, who rushed for 1,200 yards and passed for another 650 while accounting for 15 touchdowns in earning Offensive MVP honors in District 11-5A as the quarterback for Naaman Forest. "What really impressed me about it is how the players there are so excited about coach (Mike) Gundy being the head coach."

Although new defensive coordinator Vance Bedford was not on campus after his hiring on Friday, Lacey said he was impressed that Gundy could hire someone who has coached for the NFL's Chicago Bears since 1999.

"I think that's a big plus," Lacey said.

Lacey said the trip to Stillwater was the last of his five official visits. He previously visited Kansas, Colorado, Wisconsin and Iowa.

"I'm still committed to Kansas, for the most part," Lacey said.

When asked what's next now that he's taken his five official visits, Lacey said, "I really don't know."
