Anybody have any information on this kid? He is a 3-star out of Virginia. Depending on the recruiting site he is somewhere between 6-2 and 6-4, 240 to 250 lbs. He plays both RB and LB. The crystal ball guys show a 100% prediction of an ASU commit. Lucas missed most of his JR year with a foot injury. He sounds like a good athlete, but once again, ASU was his first P5 offer.
The story I read said that AP called him on FaceTime, and after the conversation extended the offer. AP told Lucas he would be placed at whatever position the staff determined to be his best once his body was fully developed.
IÕm doing a bit of head scratching. ASU has over 550 2021/2022 offers out and a great many fit this 3-star first P5 offer scenario. Does anybody know if the staff is personally analyzing all these kids, contracting scouting services or just casting a wide net over basic body types? Dirk Koetter brought his mining diamonds approach with him from Boise State without a great deal of success. But that was DK. Maybe this NFL experienced staff feels that it has the talent to make such a strategy work.
