Local ATH talks Duke

Recruiting from home first has been a hallmark of the Duke program since head coach David Cutcliffe took over. One of the closest high school programs in the state is notorious for producing Division I talent, and has another talented athlete looking for a home. Recently this DB prospect camped in Durham.

Measuring out at 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds with a 4.5 forty, Southern Durham High standout Trey Lucas has a number of options. It's just a matter of sorting them.

"I'm hearing from Duke, NC State, Wake Forest, East Carolina, Appalachian State, Clemson, and others," said Lucas. "Right now I'm campaign with Duke, Wake Forest, NC State, East Carolina, Clemson, and Western Carolina."

Lucas, who can play either receiver or cornerback at the next level, recapped his visit to Durham with TDD.

"I was very impressed with how organized the Duke camp was. It ran as efficiently as possible, which was amazing when you consider the number of kids who showed up. I also had a chance to see the campus and the facilities, both of which were top of the line."

During the camp, Lucas spent the most time with defensive back coach Derek Jones, and said he appreciate Jones' approach to the camp.

"He was really impressive and knowledgable about how to be your best. I was pre ally impressed with him and the program as a whole."

Lucas indicates that he intends to sign before his senior season begins, but isn't opposed to waiting until the end of the year for the right situation.
