USF in final three for Miami Central OL Marquis Lucas



While most of USF's recruiting class is set, there could be some surprises come signing day.


One of them is Miami Central OL Marquis Lucas, as his coach said USF is in his final three, with a decision to be announced at 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Lucas, orginally a Rutgers commitment, had narrowed his choices down from five, and the offensive guard will pick from USF, West Virginia and Cincinnati.

"He visited (USF), liked the coaching staff, coach (Skip) Holtz and (assistant) coach (Larry) Scott," said Miami Central coach Telly Lockette, whose Rockets won their first ever state title this season (6A). "He really likes that B.J. Daniels is coming back for his junior year."

Lucas, a two-star recruit according to, is listed at 6-foot-3, 280 pounds
