I don't know if you guys really care or not, but spoke to someone close to Lacey a few minutes ago and he said "looking like the ACC. UNC, NC State and others ... in that order."
Just passing along what I'm hearing. st

Lucky, Any chance teams like that would be interested...seems,IMO, a bit of a stretch for Trevor.

No, it isn't. Those teams are talented and free-wheeling enough to accommodate a player like Lacey. He'd be a particularly good fit at NCSU IMEO.
His laziness yea I agree with NCSU, he'd fit right in... not UNC, no way they give him a scholly, I could be proven wrong, but I just don't see it.
You evidently haven't watched those teams play. Our offense sucks; theirs do not. He'd be a fine wing player at either of those schools.
NC State? Hahaha.
Lacey's concerns regarding offensive philosophy and player development at Bama are justified. Lacey would look completely different with a coach that would use him correctly. He's definitely more talented than Earnest Shelton but Shelton was much more productive and utilized correctly. Gottfried has his faults but these concerns about the guy in charge at Bama are legitimate. Can't blame Lacey on this one.
I've watched them play plenty, I live les than an hour from both...I can't see Lacey getting on the court at UNC, it's not about the offense they run, it about the player. Lacey doesn't have the work ethic, he's lazy, he's out of shape...now if he has turned the corner and gets himself in shape and establishes he's going to work to get better, maybe...again, IMO, no way Roy Williams wastes time with TL, he just didn't fall off the turnip truck...Mark Gottfried, yea well maybe because I watched his teams plenty, and they are lazy, undisciplined, and very inconsistent...like I said before, right up his alley.
I get that and agree, but this isn't all about the head coach, the player is to blame as well. I'm no Grant homer, he's made his bed and there are serious issues...I may be completely off base with my opinion, but I see more laziness and body out of shape when I watch Lacey than I do than player development.
Gottfried looking to stick it to Bama.

Nobody sees the floor at UNC unless he fully grasps the defense and gives maximum effort. Also, their uptempo offense (with such a focus on the primary and secondary break) is a horrible fit for Lacey unless he drops 20 pounds and gets his butt in great shape. UNC needs a wing this year if Wiggins goes to UK or FSU, but Lacey wouldn't be eligible until the following year, when UNC looks to bring in two wings vastly more talented than Lacey.
I agree with MANAGER's comments. He'd fit fine at NCSU.
UNC took Justin Knox a couple of years ago. No way they would turn Lacey down if they had a spot for him.

Mr Knox did not get a scholly and never played. What's your point ?
