Current Wildcat Commit Weighing Options

By Sean Kelly

Current Wildcat verbal commit Maurice Lucas, a four star DL recruit from Rangeview High School in Aurora, Colorado recently took an unofficial visit to Boulder on Thursday. Having committed to Colorado previously before reversing his decision and changing his commitment to K-State, Maurice's father said his son will take an official visit to Colorado on November 27th. Prior to the Colorado visit however, Maurice has scheduled a visit to Kansas State and will visit Manhattan on November 20th. After both visits: "Maurice will make a final decision from there."

In speaking with Maurice's father Tuesday evening, he said his son is currently weighing his options and would like to make a decision by the first week of December and that will be the final decision.

"Distance could be a factor- I think that may be part of it. We took a visit to Kansas State in August and we really liked it, we really do. We were pretty impressed. We met the coaching staff for K-State and just really liked it there. You know, probably the distance maybe is there. He is going to take his official visits to K-State and CU and then he is going to make his final decision."

Mr. Lucas was very forthcoming in regards to where his son currently stands in the recruiting process.

"We have informed the Kansas State coaching staff and Coach Peterson of what our plans are and what we are doing. They are cognizant of what we are doing and we keep in touch."

As far as the Cats are concerned and Maurice's upcoming visit, Mr. Lucas had this to say:

"This is not a done deal. We are not saying that Maurice is not going to Kansas State. That is absolutely not what we are saying. I mean there are a lot of intangibles of course but we are not saying he is not going to Kansas State. This whole process is very fluid and a lot can happen. You basically have a 17 yr old that is looking at his options."

Clearly this battle is not over and will be waged over this next month. We will be following the recruiting process for Maurice closely and have additional updates following his visits to both Manhattan and Boulder.
