Two Recruiting Lucier-South Hardest

Orange Lutheran (Calif.) junior defensive end Keisean Lucier-South and his Lancer teammates saw their season come to an end in heartbreaking fashion last Friday against Long Beach Poly (Calif.)...

In a closer than expected 1st round matchup, Orange Lutheran led Poly for most of the game. Up four with a minute left in the game, the Lancers botched a 4th down punt inside their own 10 yard line. The Jackrabbits scored the game winning touchdown and won the game 19-17.

Keisean Lucier-South, a top 50 player nationally in the 2015 Scout 100, was double teamed most of the night but still had a late sack in the game and showed why he has offers from programs all over the country.

The athlete looks all of 6-foot-5, 205 pounds with plenty of room to fill out. He might project even better as an outside linebacker at the next level and is athletic enough to make the transition. He shows very good closing speed and plays with a motor.

"I was so frustrated when that game was over," Lucier-South said. "I was mad and sad at the same time. Poly had a big line up front and they were physical so I just tried to use my quickness to get around them. They're good though, nothing but respect for them and how they play."

On the recruiting front, Lucier-South has jumped right from football to basketball and as a result, wasn't able to attend last weekend's big USC win over Stanford or this weekend's UCLA game with Arizona State.

"Recruiting is going good right now," Lucier-South said. "I'm just getting a lot of letters right now and I'm hoping to visit some schools in the spring and summer. I want to check out Texas, Oregon and Washington for sure and maybe Notre Dame and Tennessee.

"UCLA and Texas are recruiting me the hardest and I like both schools a lot. I camped with UCLA and had a great time there and I've also been to USC, those are the only schools I've been to so far. I have no plans to make an early commitment, in fact, I'm going to wait until Signing Day. I want to do all my visits and play it out before making my decision."
