Georgia DB enjoyed visit to Louisville

<B>ITV RECRUITING EXCLUSIVE</b> - Jamal Lewis discussed his recent visit to Louisville with ITV and told us where the Cardinals fit in with his list of favorites.

Defensive back Jamal Lewis of Jonesboro (GA) High School made an unofficial visit to Louisville for the game against Temple and recently informed that he went home impressed.

"It was pretty nice," said Lewis of his visit. "It was good to see a game. They played a lot of defensive backs and a lot of them are young guys."

The 6'0, 170-pound athlete grew up a close friend of current Cardinal true freshman wide receiver Harry Douglas, who played with Lewis for three years at Jonesboro. "It was great to see [Harry Douglas] while I was there," continued Lewis.

During the Nike Camps this past summer, Lewis, who is a Georgia Hot 100 prospect, impressed many with his abilities to cover, as well as with his speed.

"He has great size and can play corner, but he looks to be a more natural fit at safety,"'s Southeast recuiting analyst Scott Kennedy said of Lewis. In addition to his impressive cover skills, Lewis also recorded a 4.4 forty time during the combines.

In addition to Louisville, Lewis is hearing regularly from Wake Forest, Duke, Georgia Tech, Connecticut, Georgia and Georgia Tech. He has offers from Duke, Wake Forest, Georgia Tech and Connecticut and has also made unofficial visits to Auburn, Georgia and Georgia Tech.

"I'm waiting for that one," explained Lewis of a possible offer from the Cardinal coaching staff. "I'm being recruited by Coach [Joel] Thomas. I like him...he's a straightforward guy."

He also told ITV that he currently lists Louisville, Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, Duke and Georgia as his top five and that he may make his college decision by the end of October.
