Between Alec Pell, Colorado’s 18th commit in the 2019 class, and Tarik Luckett, the newest and 19th commit in the 2019 class, the Buffaloes finished fall camp, curbstomped CSU, and gutted out a win against Nebraska. On the football field, the Buffs have progressed leaps and bounds in the last month.
This corresponds to a lull in the recruiting world. Usually, at this time, the high school players are starting up their senior year, both on the field and in the classroom. They don’t have as much time to think about scholarships and colleges and coaches. The same goes at the college level. The coaches now have to gameplan every week and watch hours of film. This time of year is just less focused on recruiting, until the official visits start happening.
That didn’t stop Tarik Luckett from announcing for the Buffs. The four-star (according to 247 Sports) from Southern California powerhouse Junipero Serra High School chose CU over plenty of Pac-12 options. In the end, he narrowed his schools down to Oregon, Washington State, Colorado State, and CU before he picked Coach Chiaverini and company. At 6’3, 190, Luckett is a big body that Chiv loves to mold into a monster.
Tarik Luckett is freaky smooth for how big he is.
He has fantastic body control, agility, and gets in and out of breaks well. All in all, he’s just a big, polished receiver that has the athleticism to be more than just a possession guy. He’s a great get.
