Lucas a Buff Once and for All

Lucas a Buff Once and for All

After becoming the first commitment of the recruiting class, <a href="http://scout.theinsiders.com/a.z?s=148&p=8&c=1&nid=1152627">Maurice Lucas</a> backed off and opted for Kansas State. The CU staff stayed with him and it has paid off for them as the four star d-end told the coaches yesterday that he is a Buff, again.

Height: 6-6
Weight: 230
40 time: 4.55
Bench: 300
Squat: 410
Clean: 300
Vertical:'28
From: Aurora, Colorado
High School: Rangeview

"I am comfortable with Colorado," said Lucas. "It is a more convenient place for me to go and it is also more convenient for my family. I called Coach Wristen Monday night to let him know. I told the Kansas State coaches and they were upset, but they understood."

Lucas is getting bigger everyday as he now stands at 6-6, 230. "The coaches want me to be around 260 for my playing weight."

CU has recruited him as a defensive end, but if he continues to grow Lucas may end up as a d-tackle. "I wouldn't really mind if that is the case," he said. "I could play there if I am better suited for it."

He was named first team all-conference as a defensive end and offensive tackle this fall. He was also named first team all-state at d-end. Rangeview finished with a 7-4 record. He is not sure what his final stats were, but believes he had a good season. Lucas carries a 3.0 core GPA and is awaiting his test scores.

He will officially visit Boulder this weekend.
