Georgia Tech recruiting has heated up in the past month, and they have picked up another star from the peach state. Jamal Lewis of Jonesboro will make the short drive up to Atlanta to attend Georgia Tech.
"I committed to Georgia Tech on Thursday," said Lewis. "I think

Lewis has excellent size to play corner on the next level. His Nike Camp numbers
were impressive turning in a 4.44 forty time at Auburn. The times from that camp
were abnormally fast for some players, but Lewis turned around and ran a 4.50

season, including a 15+ tackle performance against Westside last week. He is a
member of the Georgia
Hot 100, and he is a player that will rise on this chart based on a solid
senior season after very good summer camp performances.
Lewis chose Georgia Tech over offers from Duke, UCONN, and Wake Forest.
struggled a bit this season, but Lewis has and his teammates are looking to go
out on a strong note having beaten Stockbridge last night.
