Five star wide receiver Whitney Lewis (6-1, 215, 4.35) from Ventura (Calif.) Saint Bonaventure may not sign his letter of intent today. If Lewis had his way he would join good friend Lorenzo Booker at FSU and his mom wants him to stay closer to home.
Lewis and his Mom are at odds. His Mom won’t sign the letter of intent unless it’s USC. “I checked into what Whitney wants to study in college and USC is ranked higher,” Whitney’s Mom said. “There are so many more benefits staying closer to home.”
“I love my son,” Whitney’s Mom said. “I only want what’s best for him.”
Miami, Texas and San Diego State got word of Whitney’s dilemma and told Saint Bonaventure Head Coach John Mack that they have a home for Lewis if everything falls apart for FSU and USC.
Lewis is rated by Rivals as the third best prospect at any position. Rivals rates Lewis as the nation’s one athlete prospect. Lewis is rated by Rivals as the second best prospect at any position in the Western States and as the number two prospect at any position in the state of California.
Lewis had offers from over 50 schools and now it is down to two.
Lewis is a standout at both running back and wide receiver and he had a phenomenal senior season leading the Seraphs to their fourth consecutive CIF SS Championship. He rushed for 1,059 yards, caught 69 passes for 1,235 yards and ranked second in the state in scoring with 42 touchdowns and 268 points.
Now you know why Miami, Texas and San Diego State have their welcome mat out for Lewis.
