Lewis On Verge Of Decision

On the heels of attending North Carolina's Spring Game on Saturday, Tyquan Lewis is contemplating making a verbal commitment.

"I'm getting close to making a decision," Lewis said. "I'm kind of stressed with the process. I really don't know what I'm going to do or how I'm going to do it."

Lewis, a 6-foot-3, 220-pound defensive end from Tarboro (N.C.), won't confirm any direction he's leaning and doesn't list a group of schools he's focused on.

With that said, Lewis says UNC's chances are "pretty high."

"My family likes [UNC] and it's close to home," Lewis said.

Immediately following UNC's Spring Game – which was his fifth visit to the campus – Lewis discussed making a decision with Larry Fedora.

"He was just talking about the pros and cons of going to North Carolina," Lewis said.

Also on Saturday, Lewis had lengthy conversations with UNC assistant coaches Deke Adams and Randy Jordan.

"They were just saying ‘Go ahead and get it done,'" Lewis said. "They said it would be nice to have me as an addition to the 'N.C. Dream Team.'"

The other recruits who attended the game, including those already committed to UNC, talked with Lewis throughout the day, but neglected to attempt to recruit him.

"They all know how I am," Lewis said.

UNC is recruiting Lewis both as a defensive end and a bandit. He got to see how both positions are utilized in UNC's 4-2-5 defense during the Spring Game.

"I felt like I could play in that defense if I really wanted to," Lewis said. "I like everything I saw."
