Hialeah (Fla.) Miami Lakes quarterback Thaddeus Lewis has gotten a number of offers already and now that coaches are allowed to call, Lewis has been spending a lot of time on the phone as of late.
"I have gotten calls from Duke, Texas A&M, Pittsburgh, Michigan State and some others already this month," Lewis said. "Coach Tommerdahl from A&M was the first to call, he called the first chance he got. He told me that they don't recruit outside of Texas a lot, but that I had leadership skills better than anybody else they had seen. He told me that I was a winner and that is what they want in a quarterback."
The 6-foot-1, 189-pound Lewis attended the Miami NIKE camp where he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.88 seconds, the shuttle in 4.25 seconds and had a 27-inch vertical jump.
"I don't really have a top five at this point, but all the schools that have really been recruiting me hard like A&M and Michigan State and the others are schools that are definitely on my list," Lewis said. "I am probably going to wait until the season is over to start taking my official visits."
Lewis is ranked as the No. 74 player in the state of Florida and is ranked as the No. 10 dual-threat quarterback in the nation by Rivals.com.
"Right now we are 1-1 on the season and I've had a pretty good year," Lewis said. "I don't know how many yards I have thrown for, but I know that I have one touchdown rushing and I've thrown one. We have one of the best running backs anywhere in Armando Allen so we try to put the ball in his hands as much as possible. He's pretty much unstoppable."
