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."
