A Pac 12 leader for Lewis

With four offers already in the books, 2014 Sammamish (Wa.) Eastlake S/LB Drew Lewis already has some nice options, but he could be reeling in more in the near future and he recently updated Dawgman.com on where things stand including naming a leader, which school could move to the top of his list if they offered as well as a time frame for when he'd like to make a decision...

"Right now, Arizona State is my favorite," said Lewis. "One benefit about going to ASU is that my parents would be moving to Scottsdale so I would be able to visit them conveniently. Also, the coaches there seemed like really great people that I would love to be around for the next four years. The campus there is sweet as well. On Junior Day a couple of months ago, they took us out on golf carts around the entire facility and part of Tempe."

In addition to his heavy interest in the Sun Devils, Lewis also has offers from the likes of Pittsburgh, Washington State and Wyoming and he's getting heavy interest from California, Oregon State and Washington.

"Cal has been showing a lot of interest recently and they are sending up their DB coach soon," said Lewis. "Coach (Trent) Bray from Oregon State also stopped by a workout recently to talk to our coaches and myself. They know I'm going to one of the Nike camps in Oregon and they said that they'll be there to watch me compete. Coach (Peter) Sirmon from Washington stopped by the school last Monday just to talk with the coaches and myself."

Lewis hasn't been able to make it out to any camps thus far in the camp circuit, but will be attending the NFTC in Oregon in June. He also says he will be attending Washington's Rising Stars Camp and with an impressive performance there, he could pick up an offer from the Huskies who are recruiting him as a linebacker.

"The UW coaches say that the Rising Stars Camp is going to be a huge factor on whether or not they really want to offer me," said Lewis.

If the Huskies did offer, what would that mean to Lewis?

"That offer would be big," said Lewis. "If they were to eventually offer, I would probably have them as my number one school."

Despite having a current favorite, Lewis does not plan on committing anytime soon. However, he does have a time frame in mind to make his decision.

"I still don't plan on committing until after my senior year," said Lewis. "I think that is when I'll commit and don't see that time frame changing anytime soon."

In the meantime, Lewis has been working hard in the weight room, as well as on the track. He runs the 100, 200, 4x100 and the 4x400 and has excelled in all of those events. Lewis has increased his speed over the last couple of months because of his training in track and he thinks it will translate to the football field this upcoming season.

Lewis currently stands at 6'3 and weighs in at about 193 pounds. His current position is at safety, but things could change this upcoming year.

"In college, it is looking like I'm either going to play as a safety or as an outside linebacker," Lewis noted. "I loved playing linebacker for Eastlake when I was a sophomore. Eastlake will be playing Troy (Drew's twin brother) as a linebacker so depending on how each game goes, I may be able to play some linebacker before I graduate. However, I currently play safety and I am pleased with that."
