Kaiwan Lewis Hopes To Travel South

Kaiwan Lewis, a 6-2, 230-pound linebacker out of Hammonton, N.J., has a slew of offers, but still weighs his offer from Georgia Tech as high as any other. The distance of a potential college destination from his New Jersey home isn't a factor, but it hasn't made a visit to Atlanta any easier.

"At some point, I plan on making a trip down south and hitting several schools at once," Kaiwan Lewis said. "I'd like to visit Tennessee, Georgia and Georgia Tech one weekend."

That trip may need to last more than one weekend to touch all the schools who have offered him – he has also been offered by South Carolina, Miami (Fla.) and Arkansas in the recent past. But Lewis is in touch with the coaching staff at Georgia Tech, and they are willing to make special adjustments just for him.

"My recruiting coach, Al Groh invited me to Junior Day, but I wasn't able to attend," Lewis said. "But he told me that whenever I want to come down and visit, they'll give me my own personal Junior Day."

When looking at Georgia Tech, Lewis said that he is a fan of the community atmosphere of the campus. He thinks there are a lot of good people surrounding the Yellow Jackets' program, but the most important thing to him is that he has a good relationship with his position coach.

As he speaks to the defensive coaches, he continues to learn about where he will play in the linebacker corps – and different schools want him in different places if he signs with them.

"It's all different, according to what each team needs," Lewis said. "Georgia, for example, would like to see me at inside linebacker, but Georgia Tech thinks I would be better on the outside."

It looks like UGA and Georgia Tech fans will have one more thing to fight over.
