Thursday afternoon at a press conference at CHS, Luke, who was surrounded by friends, coaches and his family as he announced that he was choosing to join the current #1 team in the country.   Luke was one of the most highly recruited players in recent memory from the Southern Illinois area, and had received offers from over thirty schools and had recently narrowed the field down to five including Alabama, Texas A&M, Auburn, Illinois and Georgia.  After voicing his choice of schools, Luke signed his national letter of intent, that was immediately faxed to Georgia head coach Kirby Smart and the Bulldogs athletic office. Luke, who was number 63 in the ESPN 300 listing of top recruits in the country and was the number two tight end in the country.  The Georgia Bulldogs, who had already been recognized as having the #1 recruiting class this year, were able to add to that group with the signing.
