Will Phoenix (Ariz.) Mountain Pointe offensive tackle, Kenny Lacy, stick with his initial commitment…
Bielema and Pittman flew to Phoenix late Monday afternoon, a day after Lacy (6-5, 270) – a four star prospect and the 18th-best tackle nationally according to Scout, finished up his official visit to Arkansas.
"This is a place I can feel comfortable and feel like I can fit in," Lacy added. "It gave me something to think about."
Lacy – who also visited Nebraska and Arizona State after committing to the Bruins - responded positively when asked about Arkansas' new coaching staff.
"Yes, yes," Lacy said. "…The three big guys (Bielema, Pittman and Razorback offensive coordinator Jim Chaney seem) they'll all do a great job with me. So I was very impressed.
Part of that reason is because of Arkansas' current facilities and the $36 million football operations center that will be open this summer.
"They definitely have the best facilities I have seen so far…(and the new ones) are going to make the best even better," Lacy said. "I was very impressed by just about about everything. "This is way better than I thought it would be. I was very satisfied."
Lacy, whose player host was redshirt freshman tight end Jeremy Sprinkle, was overwhelmed by the passion of the Arkansas fans.
"I was amazed," Lacy said. "I kind of expected it a little bit, but not as much as it was. That was also very impressive."
As was his possible future position coach Pittman.
"Coach Pitt is real cool," Lacy said. "He is very excited and I can just tell he knows the game well."
He knows there are aspects of his game that he can still work on
. "Right now it is just about trying to be a more athletic guy, and get better at using my length," Pittman said. "I need to make sure I keep getting stronger, keep getting flexible and just work on my game."
Lacy has some thinking to do and conferring with his mom and coach on his decision.
"I am going sit down and talk to my mom and to my coach before I make my decision," Lacy said. Ultimately it is going to be where I feel most comfortable and I can thrive academically and athletically is where I will end up going."
