I have spoken to Lon a number of times and he usually gives me the scoop straight up. He is a real funny guy and we have a good time talking about the recruiting process.
I asked Lon how the in-home visits were going for Lewis. "Your guy, Coach Mattison was here last night. We had Vanderbilt in tonight for a long time. We have Georiga Tech coming on Wed. It's interesting at first but it becomes a car lot after a while. Everyone has the best car that fits you best." Just so you know, Lon was making a joke as he always does.
Lewis is going to Notre Dame this weekend and I asked Lon about that. "Yeah, he will be going there this weekend and I will be going with him. Lewis has been there before but he will get the chance to take it all in. I think that will have a big impact on him. I like Notre Dame but I am not a big fan of South Bend." I concur with Lon here.
Lon said that Lewis only has Oklahoma (next week) and Vanderbilt (January 17th) set up for official visits. "I am not sure if he will take more visit. We have a lot of schools trying to get him to visit but he might just settle on these three."
I asked Lon who Lewis' top schools are at this point. "I suppose Lewis should answer that but I think it will come down to Notre Dame and Vanderbilt. That is my best guess."
Comments. I think Notre Dame looks very good here. I don't think he will commit this weekend because Lewis told me earlier he promised Vandy a visit. It would not surprise me but I don't think he will. I do think Lewis is going to love ND however.
