ECU Football Lands High Profile Recruit

Lucas Thompson, one of the best high school safeties in the country, has committed to the East Carolina Pirates.

Thompson made his final decision by choosing ECU over Miami and South Carolina on national television Thursday night at the Under Armour All-America Game aired live on ESPN.

Thompson is 6'1" 185 pounds out of West Orange High School in Winter Garden, Florida. He is a 3-star recruit according to rivals.com.

Thompson was offered scholarships by at least 15 other major colleges including Wisconsin, Louisville and West Virginia.

according to espn.com "Thompson is one of the bigger sleepers heading into the spring evaluation period out of the state of Florida. This guy has safety size and physicality with cornerback breaking quickness and anticipation skills. Tall, well-built with a high-cut frame that allows him to cover a lot of ground."
