Eddie Lacy graduated from Dutchtown High School in Geismar, LA where he was a standout running back garnering a four star ranking from Rivals.com. Lacy was rated as the 13th best back and 116th overall prospect in the 2009 recruiting class by Rivals.
Lacy redshirted in 2009 and emerged as the third string back behind Heisman winner Mark Ingram and 2012 No. 3 overall pick Trent Richardson. Despite being third on the depth chart, Lacy gained 406 yards on 56 carries and 6 TD’s during his redshirt freshman season.
Lacy would move up one spot with Ingram heading to the NFL but was still stuck behind Trent Richardson in 2011. Even so, he managed to carry the ball 95 times for 674 yards and 7 TD’s.
2012 would be Lacy’s year to carry the load but the talented Alabama squad had true freshman T.J. Yeldon to spell him. Lacy toted the ball 204 times for 1,322 yards and 17 TD’s. Read the rest of this entry » «Eddie Lacy Scouting Report»
