Jacksonville (Fla.) Raines is the home of one of the top offensive lineman in the state of Florida. Cornelius Lewis, an offensive tackle, is attracting attention from across the country.

The third-team all-state player in Class 3A competition has written letters from Florida, West Virginia, Auburn, Boston College and North Carolina.

Lewis, who is 6-foot-4 and 296 pounds, has a self-reported 40-yard time of 4.8 seconds.

He sums his game in one word.

"Aggressive."

Who does this aggressive young athlete have eyes for?

"I grew up a fan of Florida State," he said. "I have interest in them but I also want to visit Florida and Boston College."

Lewis, whose number one factor on selecting a school is education, will camp at the Florida Nike camp on April 13th.
