By now many of you have responded to our request that you make a 10 play Super-Highlight. We have seen some real dandies and the goal of finding the hidden or lesser known recruits who have a story to tell is in full force. We got one tonight we wanted to share right away.
Arch Bishop Murphy has had some big players in the past and is a hot bed for collegiate talent. They have a few exciting players this next recruiting class and this kid, Abraham Lucas, is one of them.
He is 6’8″ tall and 260 lbs and we clicked play on his film expecting to see and offensive linemen. What we saw was a defensive end and a great one at that. For such a big kid he is incredibly fast. His launch off the snap starts with a couple of position steps and then his arms separate the offensive linemen which is quickly followed by a nice burst of speed and a finishing tackle.
These 10 plays speak volumes about what Abraham can do at the collegiate level. Can he play offense? I think there is not doubt. But once and a while we see a tall kid like this be better used at the D-End position and he appears to be one of them. We really like what we are seeing here and commend him for these 10 plays. If that is any example of the level he can play out every down the world is going to be his oyster.
Let’s keep an eye on this guy!
