There is no doubt that one of the nation’s best football players on the high school level is Whitney Lewis (6-1, 215, 4.35) from Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure. Even when schools have tried to game plan to stop Lewis, he still gets the job done.
Last Friday night against Santa Barbara Lewis was double and tripled teamed all night long. Lewis was still extremely productive even though he only had five touches all night.
Lewis rushed four times for 137 yards and two touchdowns with a long of 71 yards. He caught one pass for 5 more yards for a total of 141 yards of offense.
While St. Bonaventure head coach John Mack didn’t have Lewis’ stats handy, he did tell Rivals100 that he has been outstanding all season long.
Mack was pretty sure that Lewis has had over 30 receptions while averaging over 20 yards per catch. Lewis also has approximately 500 yards of rushing.
Lewis will start to set his visits in the next few weeks. According to Mack, Lewis has narrowed down his favorite schools to eight and he only had seven of them.
The schools in the hunt for visits are Florida State, Tennessee, Miami, Texas, Oregon, Arizona State and USC.
When asked about as a possible eighth choice being Washington Mack said the Huskies were eliminated from contention about a week ago.
“You know like Lorenzo (Booker), Whitney is really into winning,” Mack said. “The more USC wins and the impressive way they are doing it, the better the chance for Whitney to end up a Trojan.”
Well that is great news for Trojan fans, but we must caution not to read too much into this, there is a lot of recruiting season left and when you have the opportunities that Lewis has anything can happen.
You all remember Lewis’ teammate Lorenzo Booker last year don’t you?
Booker was expected to sign to Notre Dame, but surprised the college football world when he signed with Florida State.
