Bulldogs Latest to Offer Lewis

Cameron Lewis is a playmaker and he knows it. He does not flaunt his ability as a measure of over confidence, but he has been convinced by the words of college coaches looking to lure him on to their active rosters. Earlier today Mississippi State became the latest school to throw their hats into the proverbial ring.

"I called and talked to Coach (John) Hevesy, the offensive line coach and co-offensive coordinator," Lewis reported. "He told me that they were offering me and he was telling me how much they want me to be a Bulldog. He asked me if I was ready to be a Bulldog."

While Lewis has not yet been persuaded to join the ranks of the Maroon and White, he is beginning to learn more about what the Bulldogs have to offer.

"Since they have offered me, I have been doing a lot of research," Lewis shared. "I don't know a lot about them other than they are in the SEC, but I like what they had to say and I am glad that they offered me."

The Bulldogs are one of several schools who have taken the step to offer the talented wide out a scholarship.

"I'll be honest with you, I am not sure how many offers I have. I know it's more than I expected to have," Lewis admitted. "When I was playing as a freshman, I was hoping to just get one offer and have a chance to play in college. I thought that might happen for me when I was a senior.

"I never expected all of this, but I am blessed. I appreciate every one of these coaches and schools that have offered me a chance to play college football. It's a real blessing for me and my family."

Lewis reports that he has not set a time frame for a decision or a pecking order of his suitors.

"I am going to make my decision when I am ready, but I have no idea when that is going to be," Lewis said. "It could be tomorrow. I just know I am going to do it when I know where I want to go. I don't have any leaders or favorites. I am just learning about all of these schools once they offer me."
