After an early commitment to Virginia Tech, Marcus Lewis has decided to end his commitment. The defensive back from Washington (D.C.) Gonzaga feels like he made a knee-jerk reaction.
"I'm definitely still looking at Virginia Tech," said the 6-foot-1, 180-pound Lewis. "The people around me that have my best interests in mind think that it was way too early for me to commit. I committed without my parents' consent. I acted out of excitement when I committed on the visit. I don't want to go back on my word but I did this without considering all of the factors."
Lewis has been consulting with a lot of different people he trusts, one of which went through a similar situation.
"I talked with my coach last night and had a two hour talk with Ricardo Young," he said. "He committed to Virginia tech early and ended up with a lot of scholarships. He told me that Virginia Tech is a great school but to wait it out and enjoy the process."
Since committing to Virginia Tech Lewis has added a number of offers and many more have been showing interest.
Lewis' offer sheet includes Ohio State, Clemson, North Carolina and seems to be growing every week.
Over the last week or two Gonzaga has been hosting a number of college coaches including coach from N.C. State, Pittsburgh, North Carolina and many others.
Lewis mentioned that more schools have said they will be stopping by the school, including Nick Saban from Alabama.
