Noles Pick Up Another Commitment
"I called Coach Heggins after I got through talking with my family," Lamar Lewis, a running back from Jacksonville Trinity Christian said. "I committed to Florida State."
Last night The Territory.org reported that the 5-foot-8 and 175 pound running back with 4.4 40 speed was recently offered by the Noles. Tonight, he felt like it was right to go ahead and pull the trigger. There were several factors that played into his decision.
"Florida State is pretty close to home," he said. "Another reason is that my cousin (Gerard Ross) plays for FSU. He will be able to show little thing like how to get through school. After talking with my cousin and my family I decided to go ahead and commit. Florida State has great running backs and I like the competition there. I feel like I'm good also and I can compete with those backs."
Lewis will most likely take another unofficial visit to Florida State in addition to two more official visits.
"I can't make the game this week because of testing," he said. "I plan on making the next Florida State home game though. I will also take unofficial visits to Georgia Tech and South Florida. I'm pretty set on FSU though."
Lewis has helped lead his team to a perfect 6-0 record by rushing for 615 yards on 85 carries and seven touchdowns. He has also caught 22 passes for 555 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Lewis is on track to qualify academically with a 3.3 grade point average.
