Committed Fla. DL getting in-home visits

Jeremy Lewis made an early commitment to Miami and after playing just his second season of organized football, Lewis is being recruited about as hard as any defensive lineman in the whole state. Read on to see what the Palm Beach Lakes standout is saying...

"We didn't have a real good year," Jeremy Lewis. "It just didn't go the way I wanted it to."

Lewis, 6-foot-3 and 275 pounds, is now playing basketball.

"I'll do basketball and then run track in the spring," he said. "I'm also gonna focus on my grades and make sure I keep them up. I got a 21 on the ACT."

Lewis, who played both ways this season, has only been playing football for two years but that hasn't stopped him from becoming a major college prospect.

"I'm still committed to Miami but I'm keeping my options open," he said. "I've been on visits to LSU and Tennessee and I enjoyed both of them. My next one will be to Florida sometime in December. I don't know the exact date of that one yet. Then in January, I'll visit Miami."

In the meantime, Lewis is getting plenty of attention at home from college coaches.

"I've had three in-home visits already," he said. "Tennessee came. He was just checking up, seeing if I was still interested. Miami came -- it was Coach Hurtt and Coach Robinson. They were pretty much saying the same thing as always. And Clemson came -- I might take a visit there but I'm not sure yet."

Lewis said he remains committed to the Hurricanes and likes the opportunity to play early there.

"They're excited about the incoming recruiting class they're gonna have," he said. "They'll have a lot of good young players and a lot of those guys will have the chance to play early and make an impact. I like that."
