Welcome to the Gamecock Nation Lucas Melo

Its unconfirmed, but it looks like the Gamecocks just picked up a big addition (and we mean big) to its defensive line for the 2012 season.  Lucas Melo, a Two Star All Conference Defensive Tackle, is joining JSU via LA Piere College in Woodland Hill, California.  Melo is 6-2, 290 pounds,  runs a 4.9 forty, squats small cars and can bench the typical family of four one might see chowing down at the Golden Corral buffet.  Melo had a ton of offers, including BYU, New Mexico and Maine.   Hilight tape coming.


  1. Great post! Thanks for letting us know.

  2. Its not "official" but indications are he will be reporting at the end of July. Lets hope everything clears w/ his transcript, etc. This guy is a big time missing piece. Granted, its a hilight tape, but you just get excited watching the guy play. He could really energize our fan base.

  3. If Melo makes it official at JSU, I feel like we may be going deep into the playoffs, if not the championship game. We lost our much of our D-line from last year. He would fill a hole for us.
