Watch: Q&A with IU football freshman All-American Jaylin Lucas

IU freshman All-American Jaylin Lucas met with the media on Saturday morning at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall in Bloomington.

Lucas received multiple All-Big Ten and All-American honors following his first season.

With two return touchdowns, Lucas is No. 2 on both the IU single season and career charts after one season on campus. He trails Marcus Thigpen (2005-08), who returned all three of his career kickoffs for scores during the 2006 campaign. His two kickoff return touchdowns rank tied for No. 7 among active FBS student-athletes, as well.

With 591 kickoff return yards, Lucas finished No. 12 in a single season in program history and led the Big Ten in the category. His 28.1 yards per return rank No. 4 nationally. He added 271 yards rushing and 82 yards receiving to total 994 all-purpose yards on the season to lead the team. That total is the most in a season by an IU player since Whop Philyor (1,094) in 2019.
