He visited Florida State for Junior Day last month:

TN recently caught up with Lewis to learn more about the visit and where his recruitment stood:

Who accompanied you on the visit?

“[My] sister and her husband.”

How was your time on campus?

“It was fun.”

Which coach(es) did you hang out with on your visit?

“[Coach] Dugans.”

What Florida State coaches do you speak with most frequently?

“[Coach] Lock (Carlos Locklyn, Director of High School Relations).”

And what have they said to you?

“They love my film—the way I play [physically] and attack the ball.”

You’re still waiting to get an FSU offer—what would an offer from Florida State mean?

“It would mean a lot for the new staff to take a chance on me.”

If the staff offered, would FSU move to the top of your list?

“Yes, sir.”

Who else is in your top-5?

“I really don’t have a top five yet—[I’m] still evaluating.”

What do you know about Florida State football—did you watch them growing up?

“Yes, sir—the QB from my rival high school went there—Jameis Winston. Now, I train with him when he’s in town.”

Did Coach Norvell recruit you when he was at Memphis?

“Yes, sir!!”

Have you spoken with him 1-on-1?

“Not since he’s been at FSU.”

But you did when he was at Memphis? We’d love to hear what you talked about and your impressions.

“I really like Norvell—he was the first coach to reach out to me. I remember our first conversation he told me ‘don’t worry about offers—they will come—control what you can and continue to work relentlessly, and the rest will fall in place’ I wrote it down and hung it up.”
