Gary Pinkel's high powered spread offense at the University of Missouri does a great job attracting some of the best area and national talent at the skilled positions, especially the wide receiver position.

One of the nation's best recently received an official offer from Pinkel and company, the four star wide out from Indianapolis Pike High School DyJuan Lewis confirmed with InsideMizzou.com Sunday evening he indeed has an offer and interest in the Tiger football program.

"I got the offer just a little over a week ago," Lewis said. "I was very excited to get the offer. Missouri has a great football team and I love their offense. It's the same offense that sent Jeremy Maclin to the NFL after three seasons."

Lewis, a 6-foot-3, 190-pound athlete who runs a 4.4 forty, currently has offers from Missouri, Michigan State, Illinois, Louisville, Indiana, Kentucky, Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota and Purdue.

"I got to watch a couple of Missouri's football games last year," Lewis noted. "I feel that I would be a good fit for their offensive system."

Does Lewis have much interest in Mizzou?

"I have a lot of interest in Missouri," Lewis stated. "I'm currently trying to workout a time for an unofficial visit there sometime this spring or early summer."

Coach Cornell Ford is recruiting Lewis for the Tigers.

"I have called and spoken to Coach Ford a couple of times," Lewis said. "He is always glad to hear from me. He really loves at Missouri."

According to Lewis, he is looking for a football program and school that will also give him a quality education.

"Academics are very important to me," Lewis said. "I also want to know how many wide outs are in the class in front of me, that's also important."

Does Lewis have an early favorite?

"Not right now," Lewis said. "I'm just going to take things slow and check out as many schools as possible."
