Keith Lewis - Profile

The 6'2"-205 athlete has received offers from Colorado, Duke, Kansas, Iowa State, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ole Miss, South Florida and Wake Forest. "I just picked up a verbal offer from Georgia Tech this past week." Georgia Tech will extend a written offer after they get to know Lewis better and see him in person. "My parents and I will have to sit down and see when we can get up to Tech for a visit."

The Tech coaches discovered Lewis after watching film from his junior season. "They told me they really loved my film and wanted me to come in as a running back or an outside linebacker." Lewis is looking forward to learning more about Tech and seeing how he would fit in with what he is looking for in a school. "I really would like to get up to Georgia Tech and check them out."

Lewis doesn't currently have any favorites. This is in spite of the fact that growing up LSU was his dream school. "I am keeping my options open." Miami, Oregon, and Virginia Tech were other schools that he used to like. "Now when it really matters I need to make the best decision for me."

The only school that he had planned to visit this spring is South Florida. Lewis only lives ten minutes from the South Florida campus. He'll be sitting down with his parents to decide which of the other schools recruiting him will be the best ones to visit this spring. His parents will play a big role in his decisions as his recruitment moves along. "We are a very close knit family and I wouldn't make a big decision like this without some input from them."

Keith has not decided when he'll be choosing his school. He does know that he'll be taking all of his official visits as well as some unofficial visits during his senior season. "When the time is right I will know it."

Lewis enjoys playing on the defensive side of the ball. He has played both safety and outside linebacker for Freedom High School. He is considered to be a hard hitter and sure tackler. Playing aggressively is his style of play. "When I get my chance to tackle someone, I will not hold back," said Lewis. "I want to hit and hit hard and make sure the runner goes down." Top Stories
