Kenny Lacy was one of the select 2013 prospects invited to Arizona State this weekend and the Phoenix (Ariz.) Mountain Pointe offensive tackle received an offer on the visit.
The 6-foot-5, 260-pound recruit also noticed some stark differences in the new regime compared to the old coaching staff and Lacy said he liked the changes.
"There is a definitely a big difference with this staff," Lacy said. "They are very energetic, they're excited about what's going on at ASU. It was good for coach (Todd) Graham to go there.
"They had the best players there so they're trying to get the best players in Arizona first and that's different from the old staff. They're ready to make some changes up there.
"I'm definitely considering them. I'm still going to weigh all my options and look for what's best for me. It's the fifth offer I have right now so they'll definitely be considered."
Lacy, who looked good at the U.S. Army National Combine, has been offered by Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon State, Purdue and San Diego State and he's hearing from many other programs.
The trip to Arizona State was definitely worthwhile not only because he was offered but he got to meet the new coaching staff, talk with some of the other top in-state players and get a feel for what the Sun Devils can offer.
Lacy definitely was impressed.
"It went very well," Lacy said. "I liked that the top players in the state were there. They showed us around the school, we went to the indoor practice facility, they showed us around the weight room, the training room and they showed us all the nutrition stuff they have to offer.
"They have physicians, chiropractors, they have everything you need there. It was a really good day. We got to break up into position meetings. I was the only lineman there and I got to watch some film and they showed me how they do things on offense. Coach Graham offered me at the end of the day so that was great."
