UM Hot After Premier DT

At 6-foot-2 and 285 pounds, Virginia's Jonathan Lewis is one of the top defensive tackle prospects in the entire country. Lewis talks about the Miami season so far, his visit schedule, and names his current favorites.

Lewis checked in at Virginia's summer camp at 6-foot-2 and 286 pounds. The interior defensive lineman turned in an impressive 4.90/40 at the camp. Lewis has helped lead his team to a 3-0 start, registering five sacks so far. Inside the classroom, Lewis has a 3.0 GPA and an 840 SAT score.

Which schools have been calling you this month: Florida State, Miami, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Tennessee, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Michigan State, and Michigan.

Which of those schools have sent you scholarship offers in the mail: All the ones I just mentioned.

If signing day were tomorrow, what's it looking like: I'm looking at four schools - Virginia, Virginia Tech, Florida State, and Miami. Those are my favorites.

Have you scheduled any official visits: I'm going to Tech on December 8. Virginia on Jan 15, and Miami sometime in early December.

Talk about Miami: They're having a good season and they've always had a lot of good defensive tackles.

Personally, it sounds like Lewis is being very heavily recruited. It'll probably be tough to get him out of the state of Virginia, but if that happens, we are sitting in very good position.
