North Allegheny lineman Jake Lugg chooses Ivy League football

The Ivy League added a top WPIAL lineman for the second time in two days when North Allegheny’s Jake Lugg committed Wednesday to Harvard.

The 6-foot-3, 255-pound rising senior had more than a dozen Division 1 offers, many from Ivy, Patriot and Mid-American schools. He announced a Harvard offer May 19 and committed little more than a month later.

His Ivy League commitment was the WPIAL’s second this week. Thomas Jefferson lineman Mac Duda committed Tuesday to Princeton.

Lugg joins his brother Josh, a junior at Notre Dame, as Division 1 offensive line recruits.
