Shakeil Lucas Pulls the Trigger

Shakeil Lucas almost committed on the spot when he received an offer from Louisiana Tech back in the spring.

"I committed to Louisiana Tech today," said Lucas. "I've been thinking about it. I had talked to the coaches on Monday and then I talked it over with my Mom. It felt like the right time."

Shakeil Lucas also has an offer from South Alabama. He recently attended camp at Nicholls State. "It was okay, I had a nice time."

Lucas plans on attending Louisiana Tech's home opener against Mississippi State. "Coach Dooley wants to keep in touch with me," explained Lucas. "He wants to keep me up to date with what is going on up there."

Shakeil is the third commitment for Head Coach Derek Dooley. He is ranked as the #138 Defensive End in the country. Lucas totaled 74 tackles during his junior season with six sacks and a forced fumble.
