One of the biggest stock risers during the month of July is set to make a decision, as point guard Te’Jon Lucas will commit on Wednesday. The native of Milwaukee will choose between his finalists of Illinois, Old Dominion and USC during a 5:30 p.m. CST press conference.
The three-star Lucas burst on the national scene with his strong play during the summer as he was one of the surprise players at the NBPA Top 100 Camp and he also performed well during July. Old Dominion has been in the picture the longest for the 5-foot-11 Lucas but Illinois and USC have both made late charges.
Lucas has taken an unofficial visit to Illinois and official visits to Old Dominion and USC during the recruiting process. A high IQ floor general, Lucas is adept at running pick and rolls and he’s the type of point guard who can get others involved.
