One of the top running backs from the Bayou State is Eddie Lacy. Lacy, who is 5-11 and 226 pounds, hails from Geismar (La.) Dutchtown High School. He rushed for more than 1,800 yards and 26 scores last season as a junior.
"I read the holes well," Lacy said. "I am a cutback runner with good speed and vision. If there is one thing I really need to work on it's my pass pro."
According to Lacy he has scholarship offers from Oklahoma, Minnesota, Tennessee, Auburn, LSU, and Iowa. Do they all make up his school favorites?
"I like Auburn, Arkansas, Oklahoma, LSU, Iowa and Miami.
"Auburn runs the ball a lot. I like their style. I was supposed to go to their Junior Day but I couldn't get there. I will try and get there this summer.
"Arkansas wants to use me a variety of ways like they did with (Darren) McFadden. I still don't know too much about them so I am researching them. The same goes with Iowa and Miami.
"At Oklahoma I liked how they used Adrian Peterson. I go off that with them. That's pretty much why I like the Sooners.
"LSU. It's LSU. They are an unselfish team. At LSU they share the ball. No one running back gets all the carries.
"I am looking at the coaching staffs and I would like to get some early playing time."
Lacy did attend a LSU junior day but has not seen any other schools at this time. He is hoping to see some others this summer but is not sure yet where he will be going.
