That said, he admits he grew up watching Notre Dame. This weekend, he took an unofficial visit there, his first as a recruit.
"I actually went to watch them play Western Michigan this weekend, but I've always watched Notre Dame. When I went there signed in and got something to eat went on tour of campus, watched players warm up before game and talked to the coaches and some of the players. They talked to us as a group, not individually."
This will not be his last visit though, as his travel schedule gets pretty full for the next few months.
At 5'11 and 200-lbs, Lugo plays linebacker, but has the skills to project elsewhere as well.
"Probably linebacker," he said of his college position, "but that's even though I do a lot of safety now and then."
