Lewis is very comfortable as a standup linebacker or coming off the corner as a rusher. Lewis's coaches move him around in order to make it harder for opposing teams to game plan against him, he even shifts from position to position in the same series in order to create match up nightmares.
The colleges that are showing interest in his abilities are looking at him to compete at a defensive tackle/nose guard position, but Lewis is hoping a team will give him a chance to play defensive end or linebacker.
Lewis has no offers from any of his favorites and he is in no hurry to commit to just anybody. He has heard teams say they love his upside because he has tools to work with, mainly his 6' 5" frame and broad shoulders (with the possibility to carry more weight) they also like his wingspan.
Lewis may be one of the strongest players ever to play at St. Paul's high school in Haddenfield, New Jersey benching a mere 360 pounds while squatting a cool 500 not to shabby for a athlete tipping the scale at 240 pounds. Lewis has been working with a personal trainer with hopes that when summer rolls around this year he would have in proved on his forty time (last year it was 5.1 ) he posted at Rutgers camp. He would like to camp at Rutgers again this year as well as Maryland but if they conflict he will do the Maryland one in order to get a different feel for things.
Lewis' goal going into the 2007 season was to become first team all conference and he did just that. In 2008, he has set his sights on becoming first team Allstate as well as starting for New Jersey in the governors bowl ( New York/ New Jersey all star game ).
Some of the bigger schools that Lewis is hearing from are Purdue and Connecticut, who are high on his list because of their academics standards. West Virginia was his childhood favorite and would be hard to turn down due to their scheme (4-4 shift defense). This admiration for this defense stems from the fact that it is very similar to his high school's scheme.
Another school is Boston College. The Eagles haves always have been a team
of interest mainly because they play the elite teams tough every year. However,
if Rutgers ever calls it becomes a no-brainer. The Scarlet Knights have everything
he wants from the ability for his mother to watch him play to the education,
coaches, facilities, media, and team on the rise. You want it, they have it.
