In the aftermath of Lewis’ trip to the Forty Acres, a handful of Crystal Ball projections have rolled in projecting that the three-star prospect would flip to Texas, and now that he has officially decommitted from TCU, it’s possible that the Horns’ 2019 class could be adding another high-upside receiver sooner than later.
Thus far, Texas holds a trio of four-star wide receiver pledges from Cuero star Jordan Whittington, Scottsdale (Az.) Notre Dame Preparatory standout Jake Smith, and Oklahoma City (Okla.) Millwood product Demariyon Houston, the Horns remain in the market for more talent at the position, especially for a big-bodied target such as Lewis, who’s listed at 6’3, 190 pounds.
Texas is expecting to add a pledge from four-star Missouri native Marcus Washington on Oct. 26, and remains firmly in the mix with four-star local product Elijah Higgins and elite athlete Bru McCoy, but Lewis would be a take for Texas should he choose to side with the Longhorns.
Lewis is ranked as the nation’s No. 739 player, No. 95 wide receiver, and as the No. 93 player in Texas, per the 247Sports Composite.
