Lucien To Announce in January

Encino (Calif.) Crespi receiver Devin Lucien is looking to the end of January to make his decision, but that will be after a busy month of in-home and official visits...

Encino (Calif.) Crespi receiver Devin Lucien has added a couple more offers in the last week, further increasing his options.

"Nebraska just offered me last week and Texas A&M offered right before," said Lucien.

Those two offers go with the short list of schools he's considering, that included Arizona State, Colorado, Michigan, Kentucky and UCLA.

"Those seven are pretty much the group I'll be choosing from," said Lucien. "I'll be announcing on January 30th at my school."

Lucien has visited Arizona State and Kentucky and has solidified dates with Michigan for January 7th and Colorado for January 21st.

"I'll take my fifth visit either the 14th or the 28th," said Lucien.

That spot will be filled by Nebraska, Texas A&M or UCLA, though Lucien has said previously that he could take an unofficial to UCLA, having been there and to games, numerous times this past year.

In the meantime, January will be also featuring numerous in-home visits.

"Kentucky has already been by and so has Arizona State with Coach (Dennis) Erickson so in January, Michigan will be coming, Colorado and Coach (Jon) Embree will be coming and then Coach (Troy) Walters from Texas A&M, Coach (Marvin) Sanders from Nebraska and Coach (Norm) Chow will be by. Coach Chow was at my school a few weeks ago."

Lucien said there is no favorite, and said the numerous options has thrown him for a look.

"To be honest, I didn't think I'd have this many offers, so I'm just looking at everyone," said Lucien. "It's still kind of fun, but you're always stressing because you don't really know where you want to go. But it's a good stress to have. I'm fortunate and blessed to be in this position."

After a big senior season, one in which Lucien had over 1,300 yards and 18 touchdowns, the 6-1, 190-pounder cracked the Scout 300 and became a four-star.

"I was really excited about that because I worked my butt off this summer to show what kind of receiver I am," said Lucien.
