Lewis Likes 'Noles

Offensive lineman <b>Cornelius Lewis</b> of Jacksonville Raines enjoyed his visit to Florida State over the weekend. In fact, Lewis is so enamored with the Seminoles that he told TheTerritory Monday he will "most likely commit to Florida State" later this week. In case Lewis is having any second doubts, he also received a telephone call from FSU head coach Bobby Bowden earlier this evening.

Cornelius Lewis will probably be the Seminoles' next offensive line commitment, especially judging from his reaction following his visit to Tallahassee.

"It was a 10," said Lewis, who is projected as a guard.

"The highlight of the trip was running into Doak Campbell Stadium" as the respective recruits were introduced and their season highlights displayed on the jumbotron, Lewis said.

Lewis said his host, fellow Jacksonville native Ron Lunford, was a great guy.

Lewis is scheduled to visit North Carolina this weekend and Tennessee Jan. 23. However, Lewis said he will cancels those trips if he decides to commit to the Seminoles "after sitting down and talking with my parents this week."

Lewis is a 6-foot-3, 310-pounder. Projected as a full qualifer, Lewis was a third-team all-state selection in Class 3A. He's a two-star player rated 116th nationally by TheInsiders.com

FSU has already received a verbal commitment from one offensive lineman in tackle Courtney Abbott of Atlanta Westlake High School.
