Lucier-South lands first SEC offer

Orange Lutheran (Calif.) defensive lineman Keisean Lucier-South is another talented sophomore who seems to be landing new offers every other day. He's now at seven offers after landing his first from the SEC.

Keisean Lucier-South jumps off the screen when you watch his tape. He's one of those players where you only need to watch 2-3 plays to see what an elite talent he is. At 6-4, 200 pounds, he has a great frame, shows incredible quickness off the edge and his closing speed and relentless pursuit are off the charts.

If you're looking for a comparison, Lucier-South has the size and athleticism to develop in to a Dion Jordan/Anthony Barr type at the next level and he's a definite top 100 candidate in the 2015 class.

"Tennessee just offered me," Lucier-South said. "It's nice to get some love from the SEC. Alabama came by too and told me they're interested. That's a great program and it's exciting to be on their radar right now."

With offers from schools like Boise State, Miami, Oregon, Oregon State, UCLA and Washington, in addition the Vols, Lucier-South said he's in no hurry to make an early decision.

"I really just want to take things slow," Lucier-South said. "I have people coming up to me and saying I should go to Oregon or UCLA but I'm just a sophomore right now. It's so early for me and those schools could be totally different by the time I got there so I have no plans to even narrow my list down.

"I'm just going to go through the process and it's exciting to see how interested all these schools are right now. I'm still going to stay focused and work on having a great junior season on the field this year. I have plenty of time to worry about recruiting later on but for now, I'm open to everyone."
