No movement on the Jai Lucas front yet, as all signs point toward Lucas waiting to meet the next Florida coach -- likely former top assistant and current Virginia Commonwealth head coach Anthony Grant -- before making any decision.
FOXSports.com's Jeff Goodman writes in his blog:
Florida signee Jai Lucas, who inked a letter-of-intent towards the end of the spring signing period with the Gators, will take things slow, according to his father, John Lucas. ... The former NBA player/coach told FOXSports.com that there was an agreement in place that if Donovan left for the NBA, Lucas would be allowed out his letter.
Florida AD Jeremy Foley, whose lovefest with national sports columnists is bordering on the absurd, has stated that he would let signees out of their LOIs, but only after meeting with a new coach.
Regardless, it all reminds one of this scenario, so eloquently debated in these pages some time back.
