Arkansas makes Lacy's decision tougher
Three highly regarded offensive linemen were among the seven prospects the Hogs entertained over the weekend on official visits.
Kenny Lacy, 6-5, 284, 5.1, of Phoenix Mountain Pointe, Dwayne Johnson, 6-6, 270, 5.2, of Bellaire (Texas) High School and Denver Kirkland, 6-5, 320, of Miami Washington were taken back by what the Hogs had to offer.
Lacy, a UCLA commitment admitted Arkansas made his decision much tougher.
"It was some place I felt comfortable," Lacy said. "I felt like I could fit in here. It gave me something think about. "
Arkansas Coach Bret Bielema and offensive line coach Sam Pittman made an in-home visit with Lacy Monday night. He said in a text message the visit went "great man".
"Coach Pitts is real cool," said Lacy on Sunday after his visit to Arkansas. "He's very excited. I can tell he loves the game and loves being around it."
Lacy, who has officially visited UCLA, Nebraska and Arizona State, said the Hogs had the best facilities he had seen.
"It was way better than I thought it would be," Lacy said. "I was very satisfied."
