It's a 'Toss-Up' for Maurice Lucas (free content)


Posted Nov 30, 2004


Maurice Lucas was Colorado's first commit of the 2005 class but has since opted for Kansas State. Now he is apparently not committed to either school and has Texas showing some interest, as well. It is still basically a two-school race and the Buffs will have him in town next weekend.

In an update with Dave Lucas, Maurice's father, we get the latest in his son's recruitment...

"It is a toss-up between Colorado and Kansas State now," said the elder Lucas. "He is very interested in both of them and is really undecided on where to go at this point."

Does he still consider himself committed to Kansas State? "He is open right now. He has an equal interest in both of them."

When Texas came to Denver a few weeks ago to scout Jarrell Yates and Michael Houston at Montbello, they dropped by Rangeview to take a look at Lucas. "Texas has expressed an interest in him, but they said they need to see some video and evaluate him."

Would the Longhorns be a player if they decided to pursue the situation? "I am not sure. I really think right now it is only between CU and Kansas State."

Lucas already visited Manhattan on the weekend of Nov. 19th and will now be heading to Boulder next weekend (Dec.11th). "My wife and I will be going with him and we just want to try to help him make a decision. But really, it is mainly up to him where he wants to go."

Colorado defensive line coach Chris Wilson made an in-home visit with the Lucas family Sunday night, and KSU will be in their home this Thursday.

The BSN will speak with Lucas, or his father, after the trip next weekend. He is expected to make a final decision soon after the visit.
