2007 DE has received big time interest

Defensive end Junius Lewis out of Morgantown, W.V. is a 2007 prospect that has received some serious interest from major college programs. The 6-foot-3, 255-pounder has received interest from the Big East, SEC, ACC, Big Ten and Big 12.
"He's getting a lot of mail from schools across the country," said Morgantown head coach John Bowers. "Schools including West Virginia, Kentucky, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Penn State, Connecticut and Nebraska are sending mail. He hasn't claimed any favorites, but I know he wants to play at a big BCS school."
Lewis is a two-year starter for Morgantown at defensive end and tight end.
"He is tremendously strong player with an impressive 350 bench and over 500 pound squat," he said. "He's a very aggressive player particularly on defense and he was the second leading tackler on the team as a junior."
Bowers sees Lewis playing defensive end at the next level.
"I would definitely project him to be a defender and may fit well in a 3-4 depending on the scheme," he said. "There is definitely the potential for him to bulk up a lot more and grow in height because his dad is 6-foot-11."
Lewis helped lead Morgantown to the state championship as a sophomore where he recorded nine sacks. Last season, the defensive end prospect recorded 10 sacks.
