Lacey announced his decision to commit to Georgia State over the weekend.
Lacey took an unofficial visit to GSU back in June and said at that time that he was leaning toward deciding to commit to the Panthers, but decided to wait.
As a freshman last season, Lacey finished with 10 tackles and two pass breakups as a part-time starter for the Hornets, due to an injury.
"I started the first three games, but then I missed the next three due to a high ankle sprain to my left foot," Lacey told JCFootball.com back in June. "I made it back, but it took a little while to get back to 100%, so I wasn't at full health until the bowl game at the end of the season.
"I'm a tall corner, so this offseason, I've really been working on my footwork a lot and I am also trying to get bigger."
Lacey enjoyed a solid prep career at Parkview (Lilburn, Ga.) High School and he signed with West Georgia Tech, however, he had to leave due to an unforeseen circumstance.
"They actually shut down the football program there, so I had to start looking for a place to go," Lacey said. "I really liked the staff here and felt like I could do some good things here."
Lacey is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2016 football season.
