My Take: Jeff Luc

There has been plenty of speculation when it comes to linebacker Jeff Luc. At 6-1 and 235-pounds, Luc is a defensive monster labeled as the most physically impressive looking linebacker by more than a few people. From Port St. Lucie (FL) Treasure Coast High School, he is one to watch from the class of 2010.

Jeff Luc holds offers from every major program in the country including Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame and USC. The interesting thing about his recruitment is there was a time that if Florida State had extended him an offer, it would have been a done deal, which may have caused him not to take any more visits, certainly not to Florida.

What happened next was a surprise to just about everyone that follows the recruiting process. Florida State did not offer Luc, and he visited the University of Florida. Once that visit took place, it opened up his eyes to an entirely different world.

While I felt safe calling Florida State the front runner for his services, I certainly don't feel like that is the case now. Luc, by my count, has visited the Florida campus multiple times over the past four months.

Another important factor that could play a role is what happens with linebacker Christian Jones. I don't expect Florida State will land both of those players and Jones is the logical choice at this time based on what both of these players are saying.
