KJ Lacey is four months from getting his driver’s license and two and a half years from entering college. But the sophomore at Saraland High School is already on the fast track for stardom at the high school level and beyond.
David Morris of QB Country has groomed many college and NFL quarterbacks and has been working with Lacey for six years. He doesn’t hesitate to project what’s ahead for the sophomore.
“KJ Lacey has a chance to be one of the best quarterbacks in America in the 2025 class,” Morris said. “A lot of guys who have big arms lack touch and accuracy. KJ has it all. He has NFL arm strength but throws with touch and anticipation as well as anyone I’ve seen at this age. He has an even-keeled head on his shoulders and is calm in big moments. He’s very committed to becoming a great quarterback and his work ethic is second to none.”
Lacey is one of the top-rated quarterbacks in the country for the Class of 2025. He’s already visited Alabama three times and has also received interest from other top college programs.
