Meet Trey Lucas

All of the schools recruiting Durham (NC) Southern defensive back Trey Lucas have one thing in common… strong academic reputations.

Lucas has maintained a 3.0 GPA.

Princeton invited Lucas to its Junior Day, which is set for April 14. Boston College, Duke, Wake Forest and Wofford have also shown interest.

The 5-foot-11, 175-pounder attended Wake Forest's Junior Day Saturday, Feb. 25.

"It went real well," Lucas said. "It felt like a small campus."

Derrick Jackson is recruiting Lucas for the Demon Deacons.

Lucas, who had a good relationship with Steve Russ is starting fresh with Jackson.

"He's [Jackson] cool," Lucas said.

The Durham product lists NC State, Princeton, Wake Forest and Wofford as his top four.

Lucas plays rover, enabling him to act as a safety or linebacker depending on the scheme. He has also seen action at cornerback.

He recorded 120 tackles last season to help lead Southern to a 7-4 record and a state playoff appearance.

"[My strengths are] my smarts, my IQ of the game, my leadership abilities, [and] I'm coachable," Lucas said.

Lucas will be in Charlotte for the Rivals.com/VTO Elite 100 Combine April 1.

He plans to attend one-day camps at Duke, NC State, North Carolina and Wake Forest this summer.
