Dougherty Valley (CA) guard Jacoby Lacey worked on his game all summer and throughout the pandemic. He’s now hoping he can show that off to college coaches, as a few are already interested and more are starting to inquire.
“I think coaches like my versatility the most,” he said. “I can guard the 1 through 4. I am a combo guard and I have good passing ability, good handle, and a good jumper. These are all thing I continue to work on day in and day out to improve.”
He’s already hearing from Division II programs, and would consider either Division I or III if the opportunities arise. But right now, he’s focused on the one thing he can control: his game.
And for the coaches that are looking for a guard in 2021, Lacey’s message to you is simple.
“I want coaches to know that I am not only a versatile player that could be that guy on offense or defense any give night, but I am a team player who loves the game and will do whatever it takes to win,” Lacey explained. “Also, I have a 3.6 cumulative GPA so I am not a liability in the classroom.”
“Lastly, I love to work, I grind everyday. So any film they’re seeing right now is just a glimpse of what I have to show.”
