Lucas Bavaro trending up

PEABODY, Mass. -- Lucas Bavaro is a bit of a recruiting wild card.

First, there's the lineage of the 6-foot-1, 190-pound outside linebacker/safety prospect from Danvers (Mass.) St. John's Prep. At the Under Armour Sevens event at Bishop Fenwick on Saturday, his dad, former New York Giants Pro Bowl tight end Mark Bavaro, sat quietly in a lawn chair at the 20-yard line. His uncle, David, also played in the NFL.

Then there are the size 14 feet, which suggest 6-1 might not be his final height.
