Buffs hosting top target -- Devin Lucien

Devin Lucien is a playmaker, pure and simple. The wide receiver from Crespi High School in Encino, Calif., has the talent to be difference maker for the program he selects. This weekend he is getting a look at Boulder. Get inside for more.

Devin Lucien is the top uncommitted name on the Colorado recruiting board, according to sources close to the program.

CU coaches are trying to convince the 6-foot-1, 190-pound talent to spend the next four years dazzling crowds in Folsom Field and the Pac-12 Conference.

Going into his weekend visit to Boulder, Lucien was considered a heavy lean toward UCLA. If he selects the Bruins, he would play against the Buffs in each of the next four seasons because the two programs begin play in the Pac-12 South Division next fall.

Landing Lucien would be a huge coup for coach Jon Embree and his staff, who have had less than two months to put together a solid recruiting class.

Lucien is a four-star prospect rated No. 44 nationally at his position by Scout.com. At the very least, he would add talented depth to the Buffs' receiving corps next year and could push for immediate playing as freshman Paul Richardson did in the 2010 season.

Lucien had more than 90 catches and approached, 2,000 yards with nearly 30 touchdowns in his junior and senior seasons combined. Those are numbers that will make any college coach take notice. They certainly got Colorado coaches' attention.
