Lewis staying busy

Roger Lewis has been busy this summer. He's had 7-on-7, visits, and then there are the two a day workouts that he and his Pickerington (Ohio) team mates are doing this summer. Lewis had been talking about strong Nebraska interest, but lately that interest has dried up. What are his thoughts on Nebraska and a possible offer?

Roger Lewis from Pickerington (Ohio) is going to be in good shape when fall camp opens. When he's not working out with his team at the school he's playing seven on seven or playing basketball with friends.

"We work out in the morning and the afternoon as a team," Lewis said. "I am trying to lead us through the workouts, getting out there being a captain, because I really want a state championship."

Lewis is being looked at to play wide receiver at the next level, but next year he's going to have to help out his high school team in the defensive secondary. He says that he's trying to get better there right now.

"I just want to get better at playing DB because that is what I am going to be doing this year. I also need to work on my size and getting better. I just need to get stronger."

Lewis has been getting out to some camps, taking some trips and also doing seven on seven. Lewis is looking at taking a few more trips this month possibly before pulling the trigger on a commitment.

"I have been to some camps to show my ability and got my name out there. I have been doing some seven on seven this summer too. I was on the Goon Squad and we are rated #2 in the nation.

"I want to take some visits still this summer. I would like to commit to a school before the summer is over. I am probably going to go to Cincinnati, West Virginia again and maybe Ohio State."

At one time the interest from Nebraska could have been called serious for Lewis and an offer seemed to be very close. After a wide receiver commitment though for the Huskers in Jordan Westerkamp it seems that the interest has gone away.

"I haven't spoken to Nebraska in a long time. The last time I spoke to them was during the evaluation period and I called Coach Ross Els. They were highly interested in me, but there hasn't been much talk since."

The lack of a Nebraska offer and Lewis wrapping up his recruiting process probably eliminates the Huskers from contention to land Lewis. Lewis says that he will continue to evaluate his offers though all the way through the end.

"With no Nebraska offer and because I want to commit before the end of the summer Nebraska just isn't realistic. I am going to have to reevaluate everything. I have 14 or 15 offers and I will to look at them all."
