DE Tyquan Lewis Profile
Tarboro High School junior defensive end Tyquan Lewis has visited Clemson twice this fall. First for the Florida State game and again for the Boston College game.
While on those unofficial trips, he's spoken with defensive ends coach Marion Hobby, who helps recruit the 6-foot-4, 221-pound prospect. The Tigers' primary recruiter is defensive tackles coach Dan Brooks.
"Coach Hobby has been recruiting me since my freshman year, since he was at Duke," Lewis told CUTigers.com recently.
The two have developed a good relationship over the years.
"Coach Hobby and I are cool. He's been watching me for two years. We're real close," Lewis said.
Same goes for Brooks.
"I like coach Brooks. He's real nice and firm. He means business," Lewis said.
Does he have any other plans for this fall?
"I might come back down [to Clemson]. I don't know for sure, or when," Lewis said.
"Clemson, Virginia Tech, Duke, after that, I really can't tell -- Maryland and North Carolina, Wake Forest," he said.
The Tigers have plenty working in their favor.
"I really like the way it is. It feels like I'm at home. It just feels like that's the place to be. I like the fans and could see myself playing there," Lewis said. "I like coach Swinney. He reminds me of my high school coach. Those are probably the main reasons."
Through seven games this season, Lewis had nine sacks. As a sophomore, he had 52 tackles and eight sacks.
Wake Forest, Duke and East Carolina have offered.
