Eddie Lewis on 7-on-7 competitions...

"I'm coming to get  some work and get better. It's the same thing every time I come out here. ... It's fun. I get to see how good I am. I get to see how good they are."

Recruiting update...

"It's a lot of fun. Sometimes it gets a little overwhelming but it's fun. Going through this process with me getting ready to cut down to the top five, it doesn't get any better for me."

How close are you to a top five?

"In a week, it's going to happen. ... I'm not really putting it out there yet."

On Rutgers...

"I like the family environment. It's the same thing at Boston College -- family environment. That's what I'm really big on. I want to go somewhere that I can be at home and be there for four years or five years and do what I've got to do."

Relationship with Anthony Brown at Boston College...

"He came home yesterday and I was with him for the whole day. He was talking about 'I can't wait for you to commit.' ... It would be fun [to play with him]. We've got a good connection from last year, making big plays."

On recent Rutgers visit...

"It's getting good. I could say that. It's getting good. I'm having a nice time. I'm liking the recruiting process, talking to coach [Chris] Ash, coach [Jafar] Williams the wide receivers coach. ... It's close to home. My family can see me play, come to every game. When I go away, they can watch on TV. It's a good experience because I'd be home and I'd be in a town where I know where I'm from."

Other schools in the mix...

"I'm getting recruited hard by Indiana. They just offered me. I have an offer from Bowling Green. They're on me really hard. ... I was excited when I got [those offers] because I like spread offenses."
