Detroit Cass Technical School has produced a BCS Conference cornerback in four of the last five classes. Rising junior Jourdan Lewis looks likely to continue that streak in the class of 2013, and this week he was displaying his skills at two SEC camps.
The 5-10, 170-pound Lewis has already attended several camps this summer, picking up his first offer of the process from Toledo after the Rocket's camp. He joined a group of Detroit area prospects on a bus tour this week that stopped at Tennessee on Monday and Alabama on Tuesday.
"It was nice at Tennessee, but I really didn't get a lot of reps because they had their guys they want to see," Lewis said. "It went better at Alabama and I got reps there. I looked pretty good and their coach asked for my name. I was working with Coach [Nick] Saban at one time.

Lewis said he "definitely" is open to heading south for college, and his trips this week increased his interest in both programs.
"Especially Tennessee… I really liked what they were offering," Lewis said. "I just felt a good vibe there.
"[Alabama] was real nice and I liked how they organized practice. I really liked their student center, where they spend their down time."
Two of Lewis' teammates from the class of 2012 have committed to Michigan, and the Wolverines are an early favorite for the Detroit native. He also wants to visit Ohio State this summer and expects to see several college games next fall.
