On The Comeback Trail

On The Comeback Trail

It has been a tough road back for Magee (MS) defensive tackle Nick Luckey, but he's now back to 100% after an injury sidelined him for his junior season. Now the talented defensive tackle is looking to make a name for himself in camps this spring and summer. He updated his recruiting in this interview with GoldenEaglePride.com.

Nick Luckey profile

Magee's Nick Luckey is one to watch in his upcoming senior season next year. The big defensive tackle had a tough injury and is looking to make up for lost time this summer and next fall.

"Right now I am playing baseball, I am a pitcher for Magee," he said. "Two days a week I am lifting to try to keep my weight up as well."

"I see baseball as a chance to keep any door open for me, and if I get a scholarship in baseball than that would be great."

His injury has prevented schools from contacting him after this past season, but he is looking to catch their attention now that he is recovered.

"I got hurt at the jamboree, and I was out for the whole football season," he said. "I know what I have to do now to get my name out there, and I am ready to do it."

"I am fully released and have doing weights and agility drills to get my speed back."

His plans are to go to all the in-state school's camps and junior days to get some recognition.

"I have already been to Ole Miss' junior day, and I plan on going to Southern and State's as well," he said. "I'll be going to all three camps too."

He says his favorite will be whoever gives him an opportunity.

"I have always wanted to go to Ole Miss, but it is now just whoever offers and trusts in me," he said. "Southern has always been a school I've liked as well, and they are close to home which is real nice."
