Make it three Division-1 football recruits on Downingtown East’s 2012 edition of its football team.

Nelson Lee Lucas-Murphy, a 6’2, 220-pound linebacker, issued a verbal declaration to Robert Morris Wednesday, according to national recruiting service

With his declaration to the Colonials, Lucas-Murphy joins teammates Jay Harris and Kyle Lauletta as Division-1 FBS or FCS recruits on the Cougars’ 2012 roster.  Harris, the team’s featured wide receiver last season, plans to attend Michigan State and Lauletta, who threw for 1,971 yards and 23 touchdowns as a junior, has declared to Richmond.

Robert Morris was Lucas-Murphy’s only scholarship offer, though he drew interest from more than a dozen programs, including, but no limited to, Boston College, Maryland, Ohio, Penn State, Pitt, Syracuse, TCU, Virginia Tech and West Virginia.

Downingtown East’s leading tackler each of the last two seasons, Lucas-Murphy totaled 115 tackles in his junior season, averaging 9.6 tackles per game for the District 1 AAAA quarterfinalists, who finished 9-3 overall.
