Spurrier, Bowden Poaching Terps OL Recruit?
"I'm probably going to go ahead and go to Maryland because I don't feel like waiting [for more offers]," said Lewis who has not yet received offers from South Carolina or Clemson. "I'm still going to stay open, but I'll probably go to Maryland.
"I'm excited about it, but you never know," he said.
Lewis is a 6-foot-5, 315-pound senior who will play offensive guard in college. His team recently finished a disappointing 4-6 season, missing out on the playoffs, so now he'll focus on shifting to basketball season.
"It went all right. It didn't go too good. I did all right myself, but I don't think about myself because it didn't go good for the team," he said.
Lewis has been hearing from Terps assistant Al Seamonson, who secured his commitment in late August.
"He's just been telling me to work out and stay focused on Maryland," Lewis said.
Lewis hopes to have a final decision by the time he takes his official visit to College Park Nov. 30. He plans to visit Clemson before then as well. So the question is, will it be hard for him to turn down one of the home-state schools should they choose to offer.
"I don't know. I can't say right now because it hasn't happened," he said. "Right now I'm staying with Maryland."
He added that the Terps' struggles this year have no effect on his commitment.
"I think they'll get it together. They probably won't go to the ACC championship game this year, but I think we'll get it," he said.
