Pickerington Central wide receiver Roger Lewis is the latest commit for Ohio State in their 2012…
"Dream Come True" For Lewis
Ohio State landed three-star wide receiver Roger Lewis out of Pickerington (OH) Central Tuesday morning, when he notified Buckeye head coach Luke Fickell of his intent. "I did commit to Ohio State today," Lewis stated excitedly. "I guess dreams come true, because this is what I've dreamed of since I started playing football. I called Coach Fickell today and told him I wanted to be a Buckeye." "Coach Fickell was very excited," he added. "I always wanted to do this before the season, so today was the day. Now, I can play football close to mom and my sisters. Coach Fickell told me that now I have a responsibility to make great decisions, because people will be watching me." Lewis, 6-foot-2, 190-pounds, was basically an unknown last winter, and he entered the camp and combine season with no offers. As people saw him in person, his talent was apparent and he ended up with double digit offers. "I know a lot of the other Ohio State commits, because so many of them are from the Columbus area," he explained. "I've known Warren Ball for a long time, since I was a little kid. I also know Frank Epitropoulos from running track." "My mom is so happy and so proud, and that makes me feel great," he continued. "The pressure is off now, and I concentrate on having a great senior season for my team. I can't begin to explain how good this feels." Lewis is the 12th commit for the 2012 recruiting class at Ohio State, and he is the seventh from the Columbus area, following Ball, Epitropoulos, Joshua Perry, Jacoby Boren, Luke Roberts and Patrick Elflein.
