Ole Miss Committment Visits the Dawgs

So many recruits this year have been affected by the terrible disaster known as Hurricane Katrina. One of those prospects is Ole Miss commitment Kendrick Lewis who escaped New Orleans before the storm and has now relocated to the north Georgia town of Gainesville. How has he adjusted to this point?

"I really like Gainesville. I like everything about it. It's a nice hometown. Everybody treats you well. The coaches are really good. The students took me in as a family member and I can't ask for anything else. I registered and they were just glad to have me. Anything they or the community could do for me, they were just willing. They just accepted me with open arms," Kendrick Lewis said.

Kendrick had a successful first game as a Red Elephant player.

"In my first game I had about 5 receptions for 50yards after practicing just 1 day. I'm still learning the offense. This week is our off week, so I'll get it down more."

What is the status of his commitment to Ole Miss?

"I'm still committed to Ole Miss. I'm solid, but you know I'm going to take my visits and other things. I want to visit UCLA, Florida and 2 more. I just don't know who they are just yet."

Last weekend Kendrick made the short trip over to Athens, GA to check out the Bulldogs.

"Once Georgia found out I was here in Gainesville, they called my coach and told him they wanted me to come on a recruiting visit. I went down there for the South Carolina game and I may take another unofficial visit over there as well."

Recruiters are still becoming acquainted with Kendrick's new whereabouts.

"Nobody really knows where I'm at right now so I'm really trying to let them know so I can start getting my recruiting mail and all of that again."
