Weight: 235 lbs.
High school: Williamstown (NJ) Williamstown
Position: Defensive end
Jersey number: N/A
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: 86
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.
