Billy Donovan announced today that the the SEC’s wee-man, PG Jai Lucas is transferring to find a school that better suits his play. Patrick Patterson, are you listening?
For those of you who might have short memories, Lucas, ranked as Rivals’ #7 point guard in the class of 2007 and ESPN’s 20th player overall, had Kentucky in his final group and was thought to be a package deal with Patterson before choosing Florida. The former McDonald’s All-American averaged 8.5 points, 2.3 assists and .5 steals per game as a freshman for the Gators last year in 30 minutes of action.
And yes, that does mean that you can start asking “Is there any news on Lucas”?
