The 6-foot-1, 175-pound prospect, who committed to Coach Bowden on July 14, is thrilled to have the decision behind him. "It just feels good. I feel good knowing I'm going somewhere great. It was the best decision that I've made in my life. I've got a chance to go to a great school no matter what happens this season."
Lewis is still pinching himself, as he can't believe he will play college football for the Tigers. "I'm still trying to believe it. I've always dreamed about playing on the college level. I've always told myself that if I made it to college I would make it to NFL."
The entire family is excited about the bright future of the Stratford standout.
"My family feels great about it. It feels good to hear people talk about you. Your nephews and nieces look up to you," said the Stratford star.
Lewis has also been working hard this summer with his teammates, preparing for the upcoming season.
"On Monday, Wednesday and Friday we've been lifting hard. I've been running on the track and running the bleachers. The whole team is working out hard. We have a great strength program at Stratford. Everyone is working hard and we are looking to do something big again this year," said Lewis.
As far as where the future Tiger fits in at Clemson, Lewis says he'll get a look in the defensive backfield first. "Coach Bowden said they would play me at corner. He also said they would give me a shot to return punts. That's great with me. I just look forward to playing."
Lewis plans to spend a great deal of time watching the Tigers this fall. "I'm going to try to get to all of the home games," stated Lewis.
Who is the favorite Tiger of the prize recruit? "One person that stands out the most to me is Justin Miller. He came in as a freshman and had 8 interceptions. I've met him and he's a great guy."
