Lewis content with decision

Dawgman.com caught up with Rob Lewis, the 6-5, 215-pound athlete from Van Nuys (Calif.) Montclair Prep who committed to Washington nearly two weeks ago. Some time has passed and it's given Rob some perspective on his decision and how he came to it. He shared his thoughts on it with us.

"It was the coaches, really," Rob said Sunday night. "I have good relationships with a lot of the coaches, Coach (Bobby) Kennedy especially. He pressured me and showed a lot of interest the whole time. It was obvious to me that because they were the most interested they would help me out the most, and I knew that's where I should be.

"On my trip I got a chance to meet Coach (Rick) Neuheisel and the whole coaching staff - Coach Jackson, Hart - all of them. And the campus was beautiful and the players were great too. And my host, Matt Fountaine, he was pretty cool."

Rob verbally committed to USC early, then decided to look elsewhere when the Trojans asked him to greyshirt. Then it looked like the Stanford Cardinal had the inside track. "Stanford led for a long time, but then they started to put on the delay, looking for a higher ACT score," Rob said. "So I went around and started looking at more schools. To be honest, Washington was the last school I thought I would be going to, but after meeting Coach Neuheisel and seeing the school I just fell in love with it."

Lewis insists his commitment to the Huskies is in the bank. "It's solid," he said. "I was supposed to take a trip to UCLA, but I didn't do it. It would have been a waste of time for everybody."
