Lewis finds himself as nationally ranked WR

While SMU only has two committed player at this time, one junior finds himself in the early Scout.com/FoxSports rankings.

On Monday morning, Scout.com/FoxSports released its new 2012 player rankings, including more than 500 players across the country.

While SMU only has two committed players at this time, one junior finds himself in the early rankings.

South East HS (Cali.) projected wide receiver Robert Lewis ranks as the No. 60 wide receiver in the country, ranking as one of the Top 400 players in the country.

Lewis, who also sports offers from Colorado and Oregon, committed to SMU in late February.

The 2012 prospect is thought to be an important recruiting win for the Mustangs. In the June Jones era at SMU, the Ponies have never snagged a receiver in the Top 100.

Last season, SMU signed 3-star wide receiver product Arrius Holleman. The Lubbock product ranked No. 110 in the final Scout.com 2011 recruiting rankings.

In 2010, Jones signed his highest rated receiver at SMU in Ennis star Kyle Guinyard. Guinyard was coming off an ACL injury during his senior year and lost offers from other schools late in the process.

Lewis rushed for 1,090 yards on 142 carries and seven touchdowns in 2010, also collecting 14 passes for 160 yards and two scores.

"In a year where the receiver class is loaded with big receivers, you have Lewis, who uses his speed and explosiveness to counter the lack of ideal size. He may be the finest player in South East's short history," said Scout.com/FoxSports West Coast Regional Recruiting Manager Brandon Huffman.
