CB Marcus Lewis Profile

Gonzaga College High School junior cornerback Marcus Lewis was committed to Virginia Tech for about a month. Now that he's back on the market, Lewis is in no rush to make a decision.

"I'm definitely trying to evaluate things, because I haven't been on too many visits," Lewis said, during an interview with CUTigers. "I'm just going to go on these visits. I'm hoping to have a top 10 by the summer. I'm hoping to."

Lewis will be in Clemson on Feb. 1 for Junior Day. A week later, he'll visit Virginia Tech. A week after that, he'll see Boston College. In March, he'll head down to Florida to see a few schools.

The Junior Day trip to Clemson will be his second visit to Tigertown. Lewis, his mom and teammate, Rahshan Jones visited Clemson after a game against Charlotte Catholic in August.

Lewis, who will be accompanied by his mom and other family members this time, looks forward to spending more time with Reed.

"Coach Reed and I, we have a close relationship. We talk once a week," Lewis said. "I went down there to visit in the summertime and he hosted my mom and me. We had a good time. He's a good guy. I like him a lot. We've got a pretty good relationship."

He also looks forward to talking with Dabo Swinney.

"This is going to be my first time meeting coach Swinney. When I was down there last time, it was kind of quick," Lewis said. "I was only there for a couple of hours. I had just played a game [the night before]. I drove from Charlotte to Clemson. So I'm looking forward to seeing coach Swinney and a couple of the players. There are a couple of guys down there I know, so it's going to be good."

As a junior, Lewis had 40 tackles, nine pass breakups, three interceptions and a kick return for a touchdown.
