With Early Signing Day on the horizon, Eli Drinkwitz appears to be switching lanes and doing some serious work on the high school ‘crootin trail.

With only a few days left to lock in high school prospects ahead of signing day, Mizzou successfully landed the commitment of 4-star RB Kewan Lacy, who had long been pegged as an Ole Miss lean.

247’s Crystal Ball was a 100 percent lock on the Rebels until about an hour before the commitment, when Steve Wiltfong and Mike Roach switched their predictions to the Tigers. Lacy proved them right by donning the black and gold shortly after.

With the departure of Consensus All-American Cody Schrader and Nathaniel Peat, Kewan Lacy, along with the recently committed Marcus Carroll, Jr., joins a running back room looking for immediate impact.

At six-foot and 205 pounds, Lacy is different than the type of back we’ve become accustomed to under Eli Drinkwitz. He’s got a long stride that makes him deceptively fast in the open field. On top of the speed, Lacy’s tape shows him to be a slippery runner, breaking multiple tackles and hitting small holes the blocking. One thing appears to be true no matter what the case: once he finds daylight, he’s hard to bring down.
