San Antonio (Texas) Lee linebacker prospect Travis Lewis wasn't kidding when he said he was days away from a decision last week. Monday evening, he had his mind made up between the two Big 12 contenders Oklahoma and Nebraska.
The 6-foot-1, 213-pounder said that with such a close race, it was the relationship he had with a certain coaching staff that helped him make his decision. Lewis made his big announcement on Monday evening to Rivals.com.
"Yes sir, I'm going to Nebraska," Lewis said. "I was thinking about it all weekend and all of last week. It was so close. In the end, Nebraska just felt like the right place."
Lewis says that his relationship with recruiter Phil Elmassian and head coach Bill Callahan made his decision easier to choose the Big 12 North school.
"They treated me really well and the talks we had were really great," Lewis said. "We talked about everything in depth and I just came to like Nebraska and them."
Lewis says that he'll be looked at as a linebacker or a safety at Nebraska.
"I don't really have a preference," Lewis said. "I'll play wherever they want me to play."
Lewis is rated as the No. 22 outside linebacker prospect in the country.
