2020 Season Countdown: #84 Aaron Lewis, Jr.

Aaron Lewis, Jr. (image via Courier-Post)

Name: Aaron Lewis, Jr.
235 lbs.
High school:
Williamstown (NJ) Williamstown
Defensive end
Jersey number:
Last year:
Lewis was a senior in high school (LINK). He made 67 tackles, 22 tackles for loss, 10 sacks, 1 forced fumble, 2 fumble recoveries, and 3 pass breakups.
TTB Rating:

Lewis is not a particularly heralded recruit (3-star, #17 SDE, #463 overall) despite having an offer list rife with teams that have produced quality defensive linemen, namely Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State. He has enticing length and agility.

Unfortunately for now, that length is paired with inadequate all-around size. He’s listed at 235 pounds and looks very skinny on the football field. Added weight is a necessity for him to get on the field. At the very least, I think Lewis needs to be 255-260 pounds before he plays significant time. I think he can pretty good down the line if he sticks around long enough to allow it to happen.

Prediction: Redshirt

Hit the jump for his senior highlights.

Michigan wrapped up a decent recruiting class earlier in February. There are no 5-star recruits, but the Wolverines got a fair share of 4-star guys. For a historical perspective on where they match up with recruits from the past, here’s a look at where they slot in all-time, according to the 247 Composite.

A.J. Henning – WR – Frankfort (IL) Lincoln-Way East
2020 ranking: #101
Historical ranking: #80 all-time at Michigan
Flanked by: RB Kareem Walker (#100 in 2016) and DT Will Johnson (#105 in 2004)
Closest positional comparisons: Toney Clemons (#96 in 2007) and Adrian Arrington (#115 in 2004)

Braiden McGregor – DE – Port Huron (MI) Northern
2020 ranking: #122
Historical ranking: #103
Tied with: WR Tarik Black (#122 in 2017)
Closest positional comparisons: Aidan Hutchinson (#112 in 2018) and Chris Wormley (#129 in 2012)

National Signing Day Primer

Darion Green-Warren

The early National Signing Day for the class of 2020 is coming up tomorrow, December 18, 2019. For the past few years, NSD has lost some of its luster when everything worked up to a froth in February. Now kids can sign in December or January. That’s good in some ways and bad in others.

But for our purposes, we want to know what’s going on tomorrow.

In short, no, I don’t think there will be. We will probably find out that there is a departure from the current commitment list, but not to one of the top-rated commits. The one who has garnered the most hand-wringing is safety Jordan Morant from Oradell (NJ) Bergen Catholic, who has taken a couple visits elsewhere. There has also been some concern that he would stay home and go to Rutgers. By all accounts he is expected to sign with Michigan.
