From Pittsburgh to Penn State, four-star wide receiver Eugene Lewis from Plymouth (PA) enjoyed a jam…
4-Star Lewis: Busy Weekend
2012 prospect Eugene Lewis from Wyoming Valley West HS (Plymouth, Pa) is as versatile as they come. Lewis, a four-star wide receiver, was called to lead his team in the quarterback role this year for the first time. "I had to take over the leadership position as quarterback. I had over 1,000 yards rushing and 1,000 yards passing, 18 rushing touchdowns and 12 passing touchdowns." The 6-foot-1, 180-pound athlete is still a highly recruited wide receiver with offers from Boston College, Connecticut, Louisville, Maryland, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Temple, and Virginia Tech. "They are still recruiting me as a wide receiver. They talked to my coach and they want to get the ball back into my hands." Now that his junior season is over, Lewis is focusing on his options, starting with two in-state schools: Penn State and Pittsburgh. With a trip to Penn State already under his belt, he is looking forward to seeing the Nittany Lions again (unofficially), and hoping to pull in offer this time around. "Penn state – I was there a couple weeks ago. I enjoyed it the last time I was up there. If I have the space in my schedule, I am going to take advantage of it." "I don't have an offer yet. They haven't told me but hopefully this weekend they will tell me. I am going to enjoy myself again, and talk to the coaches more, and see what they are really thinking about me. And that is the most important thing I want to know. I talk to Coach (Dick) Anderson and Coach (Mike) McQueary, and those are two." Lewis already holds an offer from Pittsburgh, and this will be his first unofficial visit to check out the Panthers. "I want to go see how their games are and how their fans are there. That will be my first experience up there to see how their games are there." On Pitt vs. Penn State: "Pitt is more of a passing school from what I have seen this year, and they pass a lot more then Penn State. I want to see what kind of quarterbacks are out there." On McGloin vs. Sunseri: "I think he (McGloin) is good. I like how he stepped up. Pitt, they have a nice quarterback, and he is winning games, and they are first in the conference." Lewis does not have any other trips planned after this weekend but he does give us a quick hit on each offer. UConn vs. Pitt: "UConn, I am in contact with the coach (Randy) Edsall. They offered me already. He said they would love to have me and be a part of their offense. Pitt's a bigger school. I took a visit to UConn last summer, and it was bigger than I thought it was. UConn and Pitt both are pretty good passing schools." On big school vs. small school: "I mean, I want to have the best opportunity to be able to play and do good wherever I go, so yea, that matters a little bit." ON Big 10 vs. Big EAST: "Well, up here I watch the Big 10 a lot, so right now, they are the conference I am looking at most...the Big East, too, though." On Louisville: "Louisville is far. I haven't talked to anyone down there recently but I am keeping everyone in my mind." On Virginia Tech: "Va Tech - I talked to Coach (Kevin) Sherman from down there. He came to my school. He is a good guy. One of my coaches went there to play football, and I will probably be going with him down there next year." On Temple: "Temple – they are not doing too bad this year. I like Temple. It's a fine school and I am willing to keep them in mind, too." On Rutgers: "Rutgers - I visited there during the summer. I went to see some of their practices, and had a good time there. I liked it there." On Maryland and Boston College: "I like Maryland and Boston College, I haven't been there yet. I talked to a coach from Boston College, and I want to take a visit to Maryland." Lewis is excited to check out his offers, and is anticipating more to come before he can even begin to narrow down his list. "I won't narrow down my list until next year. I want to let it all out. I want to see what offers I am going to have. "
