LSU looking at Hawaii commit

Three-star Hawaii DB pledge Daniel Lewis, a junior at New Iberia Senior High (NISH), was contacted by LSU secondary coach (and NISH alum) Corey Raymond...

Corey Raymond stopped by his old stomping grounds - New Iberia Senior High - earlier this week.

"Coach Raymond said to make sure I come to LSU's second camp," said Daniel Lewis, referring to the Tigers' July session. "I've talked with him about the junior day I attended there, and we've talked about football workouts.

"Coach Raymond wants me to call and let him know which day I'm coming to camp. He said I just need to come one day. His mom was my substitute teacher in a class last week, and she told me he was coming to the school."

Raymond spent several hours at his alma mater.

"Someone told me he'd been there since early that morning," Lewis said.

What will be Lewis' focus when he takes an official visit to Hawaii?

"It's important how people treat you," he said. "Especially the guys on the team, because I'll be spending a lot of time with them over the next four or five years. I'm looking to see how my potential teammates are going to be."

Lewis is being recruited by Hawaii secondary coach Daronte' Jones, who worked in the New Iberia area (Franklin HS) earlier during his career.

The Ragin' Cajuns in nearby Lafayette - Lewis' most recent offer - continue to closely monitor the 5-11, 195-pound junior.

"I spoke with them Friday on Facebook," he said. "I couldn't make it to their spring game because I didn't have a ride.

"I really like them and would like to talk more with the new defensive coordinator, James Willis, because I really like him as a person. I'd like to sit down and talk with him in person and also on the phone."

While Lewis is committed to Hawaii, he's also sold on the Cajuns.

"Coach Hud's made changes that made the program bigger and very successful," he said, "and they should continue to achieve more success in years to come."

Lewis is also an LSU fan, having attended a couple of 2012 games in Baton Rouge.
