Put two and two together and it appears New Rochelle graduate Jordan Lucas intends to stay at Penn State.
The school’s athletes have been quiet since the NCAA handed down crippling sanctions Monday morning. They included: a $60-million fine, a four-year bowl ban and 80 lost scholarships.
Of course, it stems from the scandal surrounding the program amidst the molestation case against former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.
On Monday, Lucas was among the many on campus for summer school. He attended a team meeting later in the day. Lucas has been on campus since June.
Monday afternoon I spoke to Lucas’ father, Vincent. He believed his son would remain in Happy Valley despite a provision that would allow Penn State players to transfer to another program without sitting. The raid on the roster began Monday, but Lucas doesn’t seem likely to join the exodus.
Earlier tonight, the former Huguenot star tweeted the following message: “I’m not going anywhere.”
