Just because Robert Lewis committed to SMU in late February did not mean the recruiting process would slow down. In fact, the South Gate (Calif.) South East all-purpose back has only seen his recruitment take off in the last couple months.
Colorado, Oregon and San Diego State have offered Lewis, a 5-foot-10, 155-pound prospect who shined at the recent Badger Sports 7-on-7 event in Las Vegas.
South East assistant coach Juan Carrera said Arizona and Arizona State have started to show interest but Lewis is remaining committed to SMU.

Soon, Lewis and those close to him are going to sit down and figure out a visit schedule so he's keeping his options open but is sticking with his pledge.
"He's going to wait it out," Carrera said. "He's still fully committed to SMU. We're going to sit down over the next couple weeks to start deciding where he wants to take official visits and unofficial visits.
"He's kind of waiting it out to see who else offers scholarships so he can decide where he's going to take his trips."
Lewis, who rushed for about 2,000 yards in his sophomore and junior seasons combined, plans to just wait things out a little longer and see which other teams get involved.
Since he's already committed to SMU there's no rush to do anything else but there is a good chance he could go out and see some other schools.
SMU will definitely be on his visit list and soon the other trips will be figured out depending on which teams are interested.
"He's sitting back and taking it easy," Carrera said. "It's kept him very humble more than anything. We were talking and he said at first no one else was interested in him.
"All of a sudden when he committed to SMU everybody came at him and he didn't expect it to get this big. SMU is a place he definitely wants to visit and then everything else is still up in the air."
