The Recruiting Scene: One of the final commits for the Pack this season, Lucas announced his commitment on January 29th. Lucas ultimately committed to the Pack despite a late push from schools such as South Carolina and UNC after his MVP performance at the Shrine Bowl turned heads.

Lucas said that the Pack's early recruiting efforts cemented his decision to play for Tom O'Brien.

"I just felt like NC State was there from the beginning," Lucas said. "They were on me hard even before the Shrine Bowl, and I felt the love there. They really wanted me... it wasn't fake with them. It was real."
