"USC offered me and that's a school that catches my attention," he admitted. "They had reached out to me a couple weeks ago and showed interest. Coach Wilson came by Hutchinson recently and gave the news of the offer." "He seemed like a real down to earth coach," Lewis added about the Trojans' assistant. "I am able to relate with him quite a bit already, actually." Lewis discussed what the offer from USC meant to him. "It's another opportunity that I've been given and I'm extremely thankful," he said. "Going away far from home and experiencing a new lifestyle could help me grow even more as a person." The five-star lineman has some knowledge on the Pac-12 program and it revolves around past success and a former head coach. "It's a program known for winning," Lewis explained. "When I was growing up they had Pete Carroll as a coach and he had a ton of success there. They were at the top of college football. It's California and that would be a cool place to check out."

A few programs could see Lewis on their campus for a visit as he has a few spots in mind he'd like to get an up close look at. "I'm going to want to start taking visits in the near future," he pointed out. "It's important to find out as much as you can about a school. I'd like to see USC and some southeast schools like Auburn, Alabama, and South Carolina." Discuss Marquavius Lewis' offer on the boards...
