Lacy makes his pledge

Greenwood (Ind.) Center Grove offensive tackle Skylar Lacy picked up his second offer from a Big East school on Tuesday, but it was not enough to dissuade him from making a commitment on Thursday to the first Big East team to offer, Louisville.
"I've been thinking about it for a week," Lacy said Thursday afternoon.
Lacy was able to give the Louisville coaches Charlie Strong and Vance Bedford his pledge in-person on Thursday. He and his father visited their campus on Thursday.

Besides Louisville, Lacy held offers from Ball State, Cincinnati and Western Michigan. Louisville was the first to offer, however, and the three-star lineman continued to become more comfortable with their program after multiple spring visits.
"The thing that gets me is, first, the coaching staff with Coach Strong, Coach Bedford and Coach Borbs (Dave Borbely)," Lacy said. "They seem like great people and they know what they are talking about. I can tell that from watching their spring game and their practices.
"I am already getting connected to the players. I talk to DeAndre [Herron] more than I talk to some of my friends and I talk to Kyle [Bolin] too now. It's like I am already starting to bond with my future teammates."
Louisville is recruiting the 6-foot-6, 290-pound Lacy as an offensive tackle, but has not specified whether they project him on the left side or right side.
