Ohio State offers OT Kenny Lacy

By Brad Bournival

The battle between Ohio State and Michigan isn’t just a one-day war, even when it comes to someone who is currently committed to another school.

Kenny Lacy (Phoenix/Mountain Pointe) was offered by Wolverines offensive line coach Darrell Funk on Tuesday.

In turn, Buckeyes offensive line coach Ed Warinner put in an offer for the big tackle on Thursday.

The offer is one the 6-foot-5, 260-pound Lacy -- a current  UCLA pledge -- doesn’t take lightly.

“It’s a big offer,” Lacy said. “Ohio State is a big program, just like Michigan. I’m definitely interested in Ohio State, so I’m going to talk to my parents about it to see about [making an official visit].”

The three-star Lacy committed to the Bruins back on Sept. 10 after he saw UCLA knock off Nebraska. In doing so, he became the school’s 12th pledge at the time.

Now, Lacy has an official visit scheduled for Kansas State on Dec. 7, and will then travel to Michigan for an official visit on Dec. 14.

Not that anyone should read much into either trip.

“I’m committed to UCLA right now,” Lacy said. “I’m not going to jump into anything right this second.”
