Lucier-South Taking His Time

Despite the attention, Orange (Calif.) Lutheran 2015 defensive end Keisean Lucier-South is in no hurry to make a decision and he anticipates more offers soon...

Orange (Calif.) Lutheran defeated Palmdale by a score of 21-6 Friday, extended their undefeated record to 3-0 on the year.

Scout 300 junior defensive end Keisean Lucier-South (6-4,220) credited the win to the teams' emphasis this year on teamwork.

"Right now we have a thing called INAM, which means "Its not about me," we are playing as a team not just one person," said Lucier-South.

Lucier-South, ranked the No. 2 defensive end in the nation in the 2015 class, had already received seven offers by the end of his sophomore year.

Some of those schools include Vanderbilt, Oregon, UCLA, Washington, and Tennessee.

That number has since then doubled, USC also joining the mix, and the expectation for it to grow is certain.

"The schools that are recruiting me the hardest at this point are Texas A&M, Ole Miss, a lot of SEC schools like Alabama, LSU, mostly all SEC," said Lucier-South.

Despite the large amount of offers, Lucier-South is not in any hurry to make a decision.

"None really stand out to me right now. I'm not really that serious about it, I probably will be more serious after the season. I just want to go through the whole process, I don't have a timeline on when I will make a decision at this point."

Lucier-South took an unofficial visit to USC to watch them play against Boston College this past weekend and was at UCLA's opener against Nevada.

He has no other unofficial visits yet planned.

For now, the elite athlete is focused on the season.

"I just want our team to go through the playoffs, try and be successful and more importantly play like a team," said Lucier-South. "We have to take every team seriously. We have to be prepared every game and face every team like they are the best in America and that's what I plan to do."
