Syracuse Offers Lewis spoke to Hammonton, N.J., native Kaiwan Lewis on Monday night about his newest offer from the Orange, a school that he says was the first to ever contact him. After talking with Coach Dan Conley he's looking forward to a spring visit to check out the scene on campus.

Kaiwan Lewis, a 6-foot-2, 230-pound linebacker from St. Joe's Hammonton picked up his 21st offer on Monday night and understands that the much of the Syracuse coaching staff is very loyal to the institution they once attended.

"Syracuse offered me today and I spoke to Coach Dan Conley tonight," Lewis stated. "I think they were the first school to ever hit me up during my sophomore year and then I hadn't heard from them in forever until I got 13 handwritten letters from their staff at the end of last week, so I came home and emailed them."

"When I talked to Coach Conley tonight he said he'd be my coach if I came there and he talked a lot about when he was a player at Syracuse and how much he loved it," Lewis added. "He talked about how many alumni actually coach at Syracuse now and that just tells me how much that staff really loves the program."

"They want me to come up for their spring game on April 16th, so I'm going to try and make it up for that," Lewis explained. "I only have one visit scheduled right now, so I'll try to get it in. I know they have great alumni in Donovan McNabb and Dwight Freeney and I did watch their bowl game where they had a great victory against a Big Twelve team, so they're definitely growing as a program."

As a junior, Lewis had 80 tackles, 10 sacks, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, one blocked punt and an interception which he returned for a touchdown.
