Khalil Lewis has been committed to West Virginia since January, but he’s always maintained he’ll keep his mind somewhat open until signing day. Like many recruits, the 2015 receiver was especially impressed with the Mountaineers’ play against Alabama to start the season.
“West Virginia, they did a great job. Nobody expected them to be that close. I saw a lot of potential. They’re going to have a great year this year,” Lewis said.
“(The WVU offense has) been fun since Stedman Bailey was there. I’ve always been watching that offense.”
While the Mirmar standout is quite happy with his commitment, he’s saying the same things he’s always said – that he’ll take his visits and see what else is out there for him.
“There’s a lot of time between now and signing day and I want to make sure I make the right decision for myself and my family,” he said.
“I still want to see my other options.”
Still, he talks to WVU running backs coach JaJuan Seider and his former head coach, now WVU assistant coach Damon Cogdell almost every day. They have a great relationship. Lewis also talks to coaches at Louisville and UCF. The Cardinals made a big impression on him in their win over Miami Monday night.
“I like their swag. Their team has a lot of swag. They come out with it every game, every play. They’re like the old University of Miami a little bit,” he said.
At this time, Lewis has no official visits set up.
