At 5-foot-10, 160-pounds, Lewis was matched up against taller wide receivers throughout bowl week practices, and used that experience covering taller wide outs in defeat, as the West-team won, 15-8, in front of 40,133 fans at the Alamo Bowl.
Lewis had a consistent week of practice and was considered one of the better cornerbacks throughout the week. However, he was barely tested by the East quarterbacks Saturday, and finished the game with one solo tackle.
"It was okay. I just played how I usually play--trying to make a play," Lewis told GoBlueWolverine. "One time, I got beat deep just trying to make a play, he did a double move on me. It is what it is, you have to have a short memory."
To be a great lockdown cornerback, Lewis admits he has to get used to playing against faster and bigger receivers.
"I just had to adapt to the speed of the game," Lewis explained. "You know the height, I wasn't used to 6(-foot-)7 receivers. I just had to put my body into them (and) not let them use their jumping abilities. I did what I had to do."
One player Lewis had to make a play on was 5-foot-10, 220-pound, running back Derrick Green, who Lewis admits he wants no part of tackling.
"He's a big bruising back," Lewis said on Green's playing style. "He just pounds on you and pounds on you. He just wears you down. He definitely would fit in with Michigan football."
As far as the Wolverine's chances of landing Green, Lewis says Green is aware of how much he is wanted in Ann Arbor.
"Absolutely, I didn't even have to come up to him here. ‘I already know, I already know,' he said, ‘Go Blue!' He already knew what I was coming up to say to him. He understands."
Now, with his high school football career over, Lewis says his next step is to prepare for his athletic career at Michigan.
"Just training, going to the U.S. All World Games and stuff like that," Lewis said. "Just training, just trying to get better every day, trying to get in shape for the summer football training."
