ShowMeMizzou.com spoke with Lucas recently to gauge his interest in the Tigers.
"I hadn't really heard from them at all except for some letter and fliers, until I received a message from Coach Kul that he was going to call me," said Lucas. "When he did, he told me that the coaching staff sat down and watched my video and liked what they saw from me and wanted to extend an offer to me."
"I love the SEC and grew up an Alabama fan, so it's an amazing childhood dream to have the opportunity to play in the SEC with the Missouri offer. I am looking to get up there at some point for a visit and find out more, but just based on the offer I would say Missouri was among my top 3 schools along with Oregon State (my first offer) and Colorado."
Lucas went on to tell me that he has already visited Oregon State and CU which sets them apart.
He also knows what he is looking for most regarding his possible college decision.
"I would like to get out of Texas and go away to school. I really will just choose which ever school feels most like home," he said.
