Vanderbilt coaches visited Edgewood Academy in Alabama on Friday to see 2016 defensive end Kelvin Lucky and they came away more than impressed with the 6’6 defender. Late on Sunday night they extended him an offer
Lucky is a 6’6 230 pound raw but talented lineman that has a world of potential and the skills that fit the Commodores 3-4 defense.
He has a very quick step and the explosion to the quarterback that many college coaches desire. Lucky is from the same high school that produced Commodores running back Josh Crawford, so it’s probably a sure bet that the Yellowhammer State lineman has his academics in place to attend a place like Vanderbilt.
It appears with this offer that Vanderbilt is not done evaluating talent for the 2016 class. There is a possibility that a few more scholarships may open up by years end, so taking a chance on Lucky looks to be a good move.
Vanderbilt could be a strong contender for Lucky but as his film continues to get out there to coaches, more and more offers could float his way.
In addition to Vandy, Lucky has also received an offers from Georgia State and Troy along with interest from the likes of Kentucky, Louisville, Mississippi State, North Carolina and Tennessee.
Currently Lucky doesn’t have any set plans to visit Vanderbilt. In the near future, he is sure to make it to campus but he is also taking his recruitment slowly as his stock seems to just now be exploding,
Look for Lucky to add many more offers soon but also have Vanderbilt close to the top of his list as they were the first SEC school to extend him an official offer.
