Lundie sliding under the radar?

Most, if not all college coaches that recruit the Atlanta area recruit Tucker High School. It is one of the most productive schools in the entire state and there could be a junior there now sliding under the radar...

In 2014, Tucker was led by Elisha Shaw, Kirk Tucker (Oklahoma State), Dominic Sanders (Georgia), and Detric Dukes (Georgia).

It is a new year, a new class, and four-star defensive lineman Jonathan Ledbetter is committed to Alabama and three-star athlete Elijah Sullivan has already committed to Auburn.

Belonging in there with Ledbetter and Sullivan is NeKyle Lundie.

Lundie is a 2015 athlete who lined up on both sides of the ball for the Tigers in 2013 and he will do the same this season.

He had a great game at the Elite Junior Bowl early in January as a wide receiver, but Scout projects him best at safety.

The 6-foot-2, 202 pound junior has been clocked in the 40 yard dash at 4.59 seconds. He has great range, good football speed, and he is a very physical football player.

Georgia Tech and Missouri have offered him a scholarship, but he is not hearing from many other schools yet.

"Auburn and Georgia are showing interest and that is really about it," said Lundie. "Ole Miss had stopped by the school to check on me one time and I have received one letter from Florida. That is all I know about right now."

It makes you wonder just how many schools are aware of Lundie's talents. He did not attend any college games last fall, he has visited any schools in 2014, so he may not be all that well known yet.

He did visit a school a few years ago before he arrived at Tucker High School and that visit has stayed with him.

"I went over to Auburn when I was playing football for the park and I really liked them after that. I started watching them on T.V., I started to follow the team, and it just went from there. Auburn was my favorite kid growing up."

He has interest in the schools that have offered him as well, but he does not know a lot about then yet.

Lundie wants to get out, see some schools, and take part in some camps this spring and summer.

Scout expects his recruiting to really pick up in the coming months because of his size, athleticism, and versatility.

Schools could recruit him to play wide receiver, safety, or even as an athlete.

"I probably like offense first because I get to make big plays, score touchdowns, and play physical with the defensive backs," said Lundie. "I wouldn't mind playing defense though because I really like to hit and play aggressive. Either one works."
