Early Pac-12 favorite for Lacy

Oregon is the early favorite for Kenny Lacy and the 2013 offensive tackle from Phoenix (Ariz.) Mountain Pointe said he wants to visit with the Ducks this off-season.
He hasn't received an offer from Oregon yet but Lacy hopes after talking more with the coaching staff that it will come soon.
"I like their zone schemes," Lacy said last week at the U.S. Army National Combine in San Antonio. "Their tackles don't really get down in three-point stances, it's more zone left, zone right, and I like their uniforms as well. I really like their hurry-up offense.
"I get a letter from them every day but I haven't talked to anyone yet. I e-mail with the coaches but I haven't talked to them much yet."
About 16 other programs are showing interest in Lacy and the 6-foot-5, 250-pound prospect already lists offers from Arizona and Purdue.
Trips to Arizona, Cal, Colorado, Arizona State, Oregon and UCLA could happen before Lacy starts his senior season and he also plans to work out at numerous camps.
Lacy said he has talked with the new Arizona coaching staff and they're going to honor his offer which was given out when coach Mike Stoops was still there.
One reason why the Wildcats will still be considered, Lacy said, is because offensive line coach Robert Anae was retained. That is important as the 2013 recruit considers all the programs recruiting him.
"They're cool," Lacy said. "They kept the offensive line coach that I really like. That's what they told me and they're going to keep the offer for me. I want to look more into them."
This summer could be important for Lacy especially since he's planning to take so many visits. Some junior day trips are coming up and the Phoenix standout is looking to land some more offers soon.
