2025 Recruiting - Football

247 got quotes from QB KJ Lacey after his commitment to Texas.

He mentioned he got to spend some time with Ewers this weekend, and had dinner with Manning on Friday.

“The first time I met Coach Sark, he was like ‘Man when I looked at your tape, I wrote down on your notes ‘Bryce Young 2.0,' Lacey told Horns247 shortly after his pledge. “He recruited Bryce since the sixth grade. He said y’all’s personalty is just alike, on and off the field. That was one of his main attractions towards me. He can see me at Texas. He loves what I’m doing at Saraland.”

“I came a couple weeks ago and everything was just perfect,” Lacey said. “I came by myself, though. My parents didn’t come. I came back home, told my parents about everything, and they said man, that sounds like it’s the place for you. So I (would) just keep on communicating with the coaches and everything, figure out everything I needed to know. I came back and talked to Coach Sark and Coach Milwee and I was in a meeting with Coach Sark and I told him then. He was fired up.”

“Alabama was on top for me,” Lacey said, reflecting on earlier this year.

“Really just the relationships with everybody I have up there,” Lacey said. “All the coaches, as soon as I walk in the door everyone’s like, ‘Oh KJ, what’s up, what’s up, what’s up?’ You walk in and the attention is around you. Everyone is really close. I talk to Coach Sark, Coach Sark is really cool. I love Coach Sark. Just what he does with quarterbacks and his offensive schemes. Basically they were like when you leave Texas you’ll be NFL ready. They were like you’ll learn every part of being a quarterback. That was really the main thing.”

“For me, it was kind of easy, really,” Lacey said. “With everybody around me, my family. Being in Alabama, everybody is like when are you committing to Alabama? But the relationships and the communication, everything was there with Texas."

“My parents, everything I told them when I came back the first time, they said it was real and 100 percent authentic. … Texas just stood out the most by far over everyone.”

“I’m going to work on that soon,” Lacey said of recruiting Ryan Williams. “I already have, really. I’m definitely going to try to get my boy to Texas. I’ll be with him almost everyday, really. Hopefully it’s kind of easy. We’ll see how it goes.”

“Everyone that I knew up there, even people I didn’t know, they were talking about the (commitment),” Lacey said of other recruits. “They were like, ‘Alright we’re going to talk.’

“I”m going to have the people I’m trying to get and I’m pretty sure they’re going to tell me people I need to recruit. Whoever I need to go get, I’m going to go get them.”
Sounds young, but hey it is what it is. Good to be young. Sark doesn’t lose qb’s though.

If we can get our dline to the level of play in 2005 and when Muschamp was here, that would be a game changer. I think we have the bodies but they either havent developed or the scheme doesnt allow for that style of play. Anyone who remembers those previous teams can attest to how much a disruption they were and it just felt good to see gap integrity and aggressive d.
 
If we get the #1 RB for the third year in a row then you have to say that Choice is not only a RB whisperer but is the greatest RB recruiter in the history of rb recruiting. :bow:

If that happens, and if I were him, I would walk around the office in one of those European speedo bathing suit bottoms.
