The interest from the Commodores started in the spring, then after Lewis impressed them at camp in the summer, James Franklin offered him a scholarship.
He likes what Vanderbilt has to offer.
"I had a good time at their camp and I really like how Vanderbilt pushes academics to be first. They really want students more than just athletes up there. I have talked to Coach Bankins mainly, but I have talked some to Coach Franklin too, and I like both of them. I think they are an upcoming program too."
The 6-foot-1, 180 pound cornerback likes Vanderbilt and he also likes a couple other SEC East programs too.
"I really like Emmit Smith, so Florida is a school I have followed for a while too. Andre Debose is my third cousin, so I have family on the team also. I have been to games there it is a cool."
No leader for the Liburn (Ga.) Parkview star right now and after starting the process out slow, he plans to pick things up over the next year.
"I am just getting going with everything right now," he said. "I only went to camps at Vanderbilt and Alabama this summer, but I am going to get a lot more next year. I would like to attend some games this fall and just get out there more."
Lewis had 42 tackles, nine pass break-ups, and three interceptions as a sophomore.
He currently carries a 3.6 GPA.
