Wide receiver Maxwell Lacy (6-2, 195, 4.6) who is now at Los Angeles (Calif.) Verbum Dei has shown his competitive spirit by participating in both NIKE Camps that were held in California.
Lacy performed well at both. He performed very well in Palo Alto and dominated on the one-on-one drills.
VerbumDei assistant coach Owen Brown told Rivals.com that he thinks Lacy could end up being one of the most sought after wide receivers on the West Coast once it is all said and done.
One thing is for sure Lacy will be putting in the work. I appears that Lacy will have a busy camp schedule coming up in June.
"I have been invited to attend camps at Alabama, UCLA, USC, Nebraska and Notre Dame," Lacy said. "I'm going to try to attend all of them."
What is Lacy looking for in a school?
"I want to go to school that has prestige and throws the football," Lacy said. "I have no preference of the location as long as the school throws the football."
As a junior Lacy was an all-league, all-area and League Player of the Year while playing for Los Angeles (Calif.) Cathedral as a junior after catching 50 passes for 750 yards and 14 touchdowns.
In an earlier report with Verbum Dei coach Kendrick Knox had the following to say about his wide receiver.
"The tangible for Maxwell is he's a gamer," Knox said. "He reminds me of Terrell Owens without all the off field problems."
"Maxwell will catch the ball in rush hour traffic and makes things happen," Knox said. "He's tough and very reliable. He's going to be a difference maker for us.'
"We're going to play Maxwell on defense at both corner and safety," Knox said. "I like physical corners and long rangy safeties and he fits the bill on both accounts."
"Maxwell will be big part of our plans this fall on both sides of the ball."
