Trevor Lacey, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard from Alabama, will not commit until the winter.

While he has been looking at the same schools for a while, it appears that the main ones are Alabama, Kentucky, Auburn, Kansas, Tennessee, Memphis and Georgia Tech. He hopes to make an official top five in the coming weeks and ultimately make a decision around Christmas time. Trevor really likes Kentucky’s style of play and coaching staff. They have been considered as a favorite and potential landing spot.
