Tulsa WR Keevan Lucas out for the year with knee injury

Tulsa Golden Hurricane wide reeiver Keevan Lucas is a name you may not be familiar with, but he is a name that those in the scouting community have been keeping an eye on.

Unfortunately, his season came to a premature end on Tuesday due to a knee injury.

Lucas suffered the injury this past weekend against the Houston Cougars.

It is a disappointing development for the junior wideout, who will now have to decide whether he will return to Tulsa for his final season of eligibility or declare for the 2016 NFL Draft.

Throughout the last 16 games of his career, Lucas has put up mind-boggling numbers —  127 receptions for 1,628 yards and 16 touchdowns.

With that production, it is easy to see why he is making a name for himself in the draft world.
