If Aldine, Texas, coach Bob Jones had a vote for the U.S. Army All-American game lineup, he would save a spot for his linebacker Anthony Lewis.
"He's been our MVP for the first two games," Jones said. "He has played terrific. I've been coaching a long time and he's one of the best I've had at the position."
Jones has been selected to coach the West team at January's U.S. Army game in San Antonio, so maybe there's still hope that Lewis could play for him in the all-star game.
On the recruiting front, Lewis will be officially visiting Nebraska next weekend and has visits set up for Purdue and Minnesota for later in the fall.
"I think if would have gone to Nebraska this weekend that he would be committed," Jones said.
The 6-foot-2, 220-pound defender also has offers from the likes of Iowa State, Navy, Kansas, Air Force and Arizona.
Lewis joins Darron Thomas (LSU verbal commit) and Daniel Campbell (USC verbal commit) as the Houston-area high school's major Division I prospects.
Other seniors of note from Aldine include wide outs Tyson Williams (6-0, 195-pound) and Patrick Hebert (6-1, 185-pounds). Hebert transferred from Crosby High School and finished third in the Class 4A track meet in the high jump.
"Those two guys will get some looks late in the process," Jones said. "They are very good receivers."
