Asked by Garry Paskwietz of WeAreSC.com which schools he is considering, Lucky replied:
''USC, Arizona, LSU, Tennessee. I like the tradition at SC; there are a lot of running backs that come out of there. The whole program is good, the coaches, I like everything about SC. It's close to home but it's not really a factor for me to stay or leave.
''Arizona, they are recruiting me a lot but, I don't know, that's in the heat. It's really hot down there. I got a lot of family that live around LSU so I'm taking a look at them as well.
''With Tennessee, they were my first favorite team when I was a kid and I would follow them on TV. I didn't really know too much about USC until I moved out to LA and started going to games, going to the campus, checking things out.''
Luring a tailback from California to Knoxville seems like a longshot but the Vols already have turned this trick twice in recent years -- getting Onterrio Smith (Sacramento) and Arian Foster (San Diego).
