With one player from College Station (Texas) A&M Consolidated already committed to the hometown Texas A&M Aggies, wide receiver Detron Lewis's big junior year brought the first offer to his door. However, it did not come from inside the Lone Star state.
Lewis, a 6-foot, 190-pound honorable mention all-state member, picked up his first offer from Oklahoma State last week before the junior day. His track schedule made it impossible for him to make the event, but an offer came anyway.
"They just sent me a letter that Friday offering me a scholarship," Lewis said about OSU. "I haven't been down there yet, so I'm going to have to go down and check it out before I accept."
Baylor, TCU, Texas A&M, Georgia Tech, Arkansas, Iowa, and Oklahoma are also sending mail to his door. Even with one offer in hand, the favorite is from a school that hasn't pulled that trigger yet.
"If I had to choose right now, I'd say Texas A&M because it's close to home," Lewis said. "I haven't been anywhere else yet."
As a sophomore, Lewis hauled in only 16 catches for around 240 yards. That changed when his junior year held bigger numbers.
"I had like 62 catches for 973 yards and 10 touchdowns the next year," Lewis said about his second varsity season. "I'm just trying to get better at what I do and get better at my route running. I'm really looking forward to spring training."
Lewis plans to take in as many team camps as he can this summer. He says that all the schools sending him mail are possible stops on the camp tour. Lewis also will take in the NIKE Training Camp in College Station.
