It wasn't his first trip to see the campus but LaTroy Lewis, joined by his mother and step-father, made the 8-hour drive south to learn that much more about Big Orange Country.
Lewis is a 6-foot-4, 230-pound pass-rush specialist from Archbishop Hoban High School in Akron, Ohio. His coach there was Ralph Orsini.
Scout.com ranks him as the No. 57 defensive end in the country and as a three-star prospect. He had been rated much higher, but he was passed over some other ends due to his injury.
While he claims to still be getting calls from Pittsburgh and Ohio State, Lewis doesn't appear to be wavering on his pledge to coach Derek Dooley and the Tennessee staff that he made back in late July.
