Lewis was happy with what he heard. "The visit was great. I don't think it could have gone any better than it did." Coach Owens and Terrell's parents spent a lot of time talking about his future. "My parents loved him. He was great. I think they talked with one another more than I did with Coach Owens."

Coach Owens and Terrell spent time talking about and planning his upcoming school workload. " I plan on majoring in some type of engineering or business and we wanted to be sure that the classes I take the first year will be ones that can be accepted into either one of the schools."

The two also talked about where Terrell would be playing when he got to school. Tech will look at Terrell as an outside linebacker that can also drop back to play some safety in certain situations. "I loved how they got things planned out for me."

Lewis will be starting school on June 18th. "Once I get there, how I perform in summer workouts and fall practice will determine if I play as a freshman or redshirt." Lewis would love to play as a freshman but he understands that if he needs to redshirt he will use that time to get ready for the next season.

Coach Owens let Terrell know that he needs to get in the best shape of his life and be ready to hit the weights when he gets to school.

The 6'2-215 Lewis finished his senior season with ten sacks and led his team in tackles. "Since the season ended, all I can think about is getting to Atlanta and starting my Georgia Tech career. Deciding to go there was the best decision I made."
