"It was good to be there," said Lavey. "I was excited to go up there because I had seen the west end zone and the facilities this spring but I hadn't been there yet this summer to see them once they have moved in and they are using them.
"It was good to see the coaches and have them show us around. The locker room is amazing. Everything is incredible and we know what we have is the best in the nation. It ought to help us recruit some really good players. You'd have to be a fool not to want to play in that facility. I know I have talked to some of the other recruits."
Lavey is still rehabbing his leg after surgery, but the 6-4, 210-pound Lavey is anxious to get back going full speed and get ready to improve on his spectacular total of 200 tackles last season in earning All-State honors.
"I'm still out for the surgery but I am watching my teammates in seven-on-seven," he said. "I am working on the elyptical, that is what I am supposed to do to get my legs back under me. I haven't been cleared to start running yet but yesterday I did get cleared to start jogging. I'm going to work up to it and then get ready to win a state championship."
Lavey is fired up and said he enjoyed meeting some of the other commitments in the OSU class of 2010 last weekend.
"Yes sir, I've texted some of them but it was great to meet a lot of those people and hang out with them and start talking about what is going to happen in the future."
