Washington State continued its strong recruiting week Wednesday when Abraham Lucas, a 6-foot-8, 260-pound offensive tackle from Archbishop Murphy (Everett) High announced his verbal commitment to the Cougars on Twitter.

Lucas is the third recruit to verbal to WSU this week.

In a tweet Wednesday afternoon, Lucas thanked his coaches and family for their support and said he was “proud and happy” to announce his commitment to WSU.

He’s the third recruit WSU has picked up this week, and the 14th commitment the Cougars have gotten in the 2017 recruiting class.

Lucas played both offensive line and defensive end for Archbishop Murphy, and is rated the No. 4 offensive tackle in the state of Washington by Scout.com. He took a visit to WSU in June, and ultimately chose the Cougs over offers from Wyoming and Oregon State.

As a junior in 2015, Lucas helped lead his team to the state 2A semifinals and totaled 36 tackles, including 15 tackles for loss. He’s the second in-state recruit after Richland offensive lineman Dontae Powell to commit to the Cougars as part of the 2017 recruiting class.
