Noles Offer Jacksonville RB
"Florida State offered me about two to three weeks ago," Lewis said. "Coach Heggins is recruiting me and I have also talked with the running back a few times."
Right now Lewis is considering Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, Florida State, South Florida and Central Florida. However, three teams stand out the most.
"My top three schools are Wake Forest, Georgia Tech and Florida State," he said. "I went on an official visit to Wake Forest two weeks ago. I really like their offensive system. They are short on running backs and I would fit in perfect there. I like Georgia Tech because of their academics and the facilities."
Early in the recruiting process Florida State wasn't on Lewis' radar screen. However, a recent offer plus the fact that his cousin (Gerard Ross) plays for the Noles have put the tribe back in the race.
"I didn't think Florida State liked me," he said. "I thought they were only interested in me as a defensive back. I want to play running back in college. I've always liked Florida State. My cousin (Gerard Ross) has talked to me about Florida State. Gerard being at Florida State will be a little bit of a factor. His family has spoken to me about Florida State also."
Lewis, who claims no favorite, is looking for early playing time and a school with good academics. Look for him to take some official visits in December and January before deciding.
Lewis has been to two Florida unofficially twice and Florida State once.
The Jacksonville Trinity Christian senior is on track to academically qualify with a 3.3 grade point average.
