Thank you to all of the Coaches who have reached out and expressed interest. After discussing with my support team, I have narrowed down my list to the following five schools (in no particular order):— Te'Jon Lucas (@too_smoove23) May 11, 2021
New Mexico State
Final decision coming soon!
Lucas will be a sixth-year senior that has been one of the most versatile guards in the country the last two years. Last season he averaged 14.9 points, 5.8 assists and 4.6 rebounds on 39% shooting from the field and 28% from deep. Lucas is a 6-foot-2 guard that has played primarily point guard. According to KenPom he was top 50 in usage percentage and 21st in assist rate. His 5.8 assists were top 20 nationally. Lucas put up similar number the year prior where he also averaged over 14 points and 5 assists per game. Lucas was All-Horizon in both of his seasons at Milwaukee.
Lucas played his first two years at Illinois before transferring to Milwaukee. He started in 34 of his 60 games for the Illini and averaged 5.7 points and 3.2 assists as a sophomore while shooting 48%.
Lucas would start at BYU regardless of Alex Barcello’s decision. He is a scorer and a great passer who would improve his efficiency since he wouldn’t have the same focus on him as he did at Milwaukee.
You can watch the below highlight’s from Lucas when he scored 31 points versus Cleveland State.
