OL Damien Lewis (6-3 320) of Northwest Mississippi JC remains in near daily contact with USC offensive line coach Eric Wolford and the Gamecocks sit in strong position with him. He took an official visit to USC in June and has some other official visits coming up. He also plans to return to USC at some point.
I talked with Coach Wolford yesterday, just talking and building a relationship,” said Lewis who is being recruited for guard. “He’s trying to get me up there and said I can come in and battle for a spot at guard. He said I’m physical and aggressive on the field.”
Lewis, who is from Canton, MS, will take an official visit to Kentucky July 21st. He’s also planning to visit Colorado and he’s going to Ole Miss for an official visit for the first home game.
“Everybody’s recruiting me hard,” Lewis said. “I’m looking for a good environment, education, getting on the field early and what feels like home.”
Lewis isn’t claiming a favorite but he put USC’s chances for landing him at 80%.
“They are up there,” he said.
Lewis will have three years to play two and is on track to graduate in December.
