The state of Mississippi is flush with basketball talent heading into the 2010-11 school year. One of the state's most intriguing players is Ridgeland's LeAntwan Luckett.

"We have been playing in a lot of tournaments and camps," said Luckett. "I went to the deep south All-American camp in Baton Rouge. That went pretty good. I feel like I did okay."

LeAntwan wants to develop into a more complete basketball player. He paid special attention this off season to his handles and hops.

"I feel like I have improved on my jump shot a good bit and my ball handling is a lot better," said Luckett. "I have worked hard to get better."

With the first day of classes just around the corner, LeAntwan is ready to get on the championship trail that ends in Jackson.

"I am just trying to work hard with all the guys and try to win a championship," said Luckett. "It's going to be real difficult because there are a lot of good guys in 5A. We're going to have to come together as a team and work harder than we ever have, but we can do it."

The talented guard's offer list is now approaching double digits. Of those offers, one has really piqued his interest.

"I have offers from Missouri State, Middle Tennesse State, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Georgia, Arkansas State, UTEP and Murray State," said Luckett. "I am looking pretty hard at Mississippi State.

"Mississippi State is probably recruiting me the hardest and it's close to home. Coach Phil Cunningham is recruiting me and they have a really good program up there."

LeAntwan has tentative plans to make a November decision regarding his college future.
