“I already know the coaches from past experiences, like camps and my parents always had good relationships with them,” Lewis said. “It was cool meeting up with them. And the school, it was good to visit that again.”
His next stop was Washington State, where he picked up a scholarship offer.
“Washington State showed a lot of interest, because their coaches spent a whole lot of time trying to connect with me, seeing if I met the credentials they are looking for,” he said. “I think I did and they really liked that about me.”
Lewis wrapped up his three-week tour with a stop at Arizona State. Like the Cougars, the Sun Devils extended a scholarship offer.
“It’s really nice down here,” Lewis said. “I like it a lot. We were able to check out the entire facility, meet the coaches, meet the players. It was a really cool experience. The coaches, they seem to have a lot of goals to reach if I do commit to the school.”
In addition to the two offers he picked up recently, Lewis also has a scholarship offer from Pitt. He has the opportunity to play college football with his brother, Ryan, who was a freshman with the Panthers in 2012.
“I definitely wouldn’t mind at all playing with my brother,” Lewis said. “He’s always been a great leader. I also heard he’s doing great things over there so, if I were to go there, I know I’d have a great time. If I end up not going to school with him, it’s not like it would be a huge factor.”
The latest standout in a football family -- Lewis’ father, Will, played in the NFL, USFL and CFL – the junior learned a lot about the recruiting process while watching his brother.
Of the four schools currently recruiting him the hardest, Lewis is intrigued by Washington, which has yet to offer him a scholarship.
“I never really actually had a dream school but, out of the four schools that are showing the most interest right now, if Washington were to offer, I would be leaning toward them, and then I’m also leaning a lot toward Arizona State,” Lewis said.
He isn’t in much of a hurry right now. He plans to attend Washington’s Rising Stars Camp again this year and would like to continue adding offers.
“I’m just hoping to attract more schools in the future,” he said.
