Cam’Ron Lacy was one of the top receivers last year in the state with 44 receptions for 1025 receiving yards and 8 touchdowns. The Stephens County athlete earned All-State honors on our website, and since the offseason has started, the 2023 recruit has seen his offers accumulate. Lacy caught us up with the latest around his recruitment.
Who all has offered you?
“I have been offered by Middle Tennessee State, Eastern Kentucky, and Tennessee Tech so far.”
Where have you visited? Do you have more visits planned soon?
“I have visited Ga State, Ga Southern, Middle Tennessee, Eastern Kentucky, Tennessee Tech and Wofford. I took a few gameday invites to Vanderbilt and Georgia Tech last fall. I plan to take visits to other schools that may offer.”
Goals for spring practice?
“This spring I am focused on making my team and myself the best possible. As a team, we want to work on becoming even closer than we already are. As a player, I am focusing on getting faster and stronger for the season.”
Are you camping this summer?
“Not sure about camps yet. Just gonna wait and see what happens with my recruiting over the next month and see what schools I want to camp at.”
When would you like to make a decision?
“I don’t have a timetable right now for a decision. I think I will decide when I feel I have found the right fit for me in football and also in my academics.”
As you can see, Lacy is taking his recruitment with a slower, more thoughtful approach where academics will play a role. That’s the opposite of his approach on the field, where the rising senior likes to play fast. Lacy averaged 23 yards per catch last season and utilized his excellent open-field speed to knife through defenses. One play that will continuously stand out from last fall was Lacy’s vault over a defender for a game-winning touchdown as time expired. That really showcases Lacy’s determination to win, but also his incredible athletic prowess. The class of ’23 athlete can make a defender miss in a telephone booth (not that anyone uses one anymore). We really like Lacy’s junior film and his strong list of college offers supports the case for more offers very soon.
