In case you missed it Thursday, here’s my story on former New Rochelle football star Jordan Lucas, one of last year’s first-team Journal News all-stars.
I ran into Lucas on Saturday at White Plains. He was home from Worcester Academy, where he led the team with 14 touchdowns in his post-grad year. Lucas played a lot of everything: cornerback, safety, running back, wide receiver, punt returner and even some Wildcat quarterback.
Corner is the position that has made Lucas a coveted Division I prospect. He has already earned Division I offers from ODU, Akron and UMass, with Temple offering as well, including an opportunity to enroll next month.
Lucas said he is nearing his decision, but he’s pausing to weigh interest from Rutgers as well. The Scarlet Knights have yet to offer Lucas a scholarship, although he scheduled an official visit to the school on Jan. 20.
Anyway, give the story a read to catch up on Lucas’ achievements on the field and in the classroom this fall and hear what he has planned for the future.
