Muskegon High is one of the most talent-laden and tradition-rich football programs in the state of Michigan, and they feature another Division 1 talent in the 2012 class with three-star running back Juwan Lewis.
With less than two weeks remaining until National Signing Day, however, the 5-11, 210-pound Lewis is still searching for his college home.
"I have been keeping an open mind about everything and taking visits as much as I can to look at different colleges," Lewis reported this week. "My parents have told me to keep an open mind about the recruiting process and not everything will be easy about making a decision, but at the end of the day go with how you feel. Soon it will come to a close, but I've just been doing what they have told me."
Three schools are currently in the mix for Lewis' services. He has received offers from five Mid-American Conference programs during the course of the recruiting process, and a preferred walk-on spot at a Big Ten school.
"The University of Michigan gave me a preferred walk-on [opportunity] a couple months ago," Lewis said. "But I'm just focusing on the offers."
The offers Lewis is currently considering are from Buffalo, Eastern Michigan and Miami (Ohio). He visited Buffalo officially in the fall, took an official visit to Eastern Michigan this past weekend, and has one scheduled to Miami (Ohio) this coming weekend. Toledo and Western Michigan had also offered Lewis, but he no longer is in contact with those schools
This past season, Lewis rushed for 1,467 yards and scored 20 touchdowns. Lewis is also an attractive recruit based on his performance in the classroom, where he carries a 3.5 GPA.
