Eastern Michigan football Wednesday that its has officially signed tight end Lucas Luft as part of its Class of 2020. With Luft’s signing, the Eagles now have a class that’s 24 recruits strong.
Luft spent the past two seasons at Fullerton College. In 2018, Luft was a first-team All-Southern California Football Association selection after averaging a ridiculous 31.5 yards per catch.
According to 247Sports.com, Luft is the No. 17 JUCO tight end in this year’s class. He’s also a three-star signee according to that recruiting service.
“In Lucas, we have found exactly what we were looking for,” said head coach Chris Creighton. “He’s a tough 6-foot-6, 250-pound tight end that can really stretch the field and catch. He was an excellent wide receiver in high school and has grown into a man who can do it all. Best of all, he is the kind of person we look for off the field. He is a great fit for Eastern Michigan football.
Eastern Michigan now holds the No. 7 football recruiting class in the MAC.
EMU is coming off a 6-7 campaign that ended with a QuickLane Bowl loss to Pitt. The Eagles have now played in a bowl game three of the past four years, the only time in school history that’s ever happened.
Creighton’s 28 wins (in six seasons) are already fifth-most in the program’s history.
