Rising Sophomore Lukusa Grabs First Offer

Traverse City (Mich.) West's class of 2016 offensive lineman Thiyo Lukusa talks about his offer from Michigan State.

Getting an offer before your sophomore year is unusual, but Traverse City West's 6'5, 295-pound Thiyo Lukusa is an unusually big and talented young man and the Michigan State Spartans recognized that and offered him today.

"I'm pretty excited," he said. "I called them to see what was going on. I check in with them weekly and Coach Staten gave me an offer."

Lukusa added that he is still planning on taking an unofficial to East Lansing soon, but does not have an exact date yet.

He camped with the Spartans in June, performing well against older competition. He also was able to get a feel for what the school has to offer him.

"It's good. It's nice, I like everywhere I've been so far," he explained.

Lukusa will take an unofficial visit to Michigan this weekend.
