"Oh, definitely," replied the 5-11, 185-pounder, who started as a sophomore last year for the 5A Yellow Jackets. "When Michael Lamothe from NISH (New Iberia Sr. High) went to Texas A&M, I started following them.
"They just started in the SEC; I'm eager to see how they do. I have a friend from high school who is a student at A&M on an academic scholarship, and I found out about their great academics from talking to him."
Lewis ranked fourth on the team in tackles last year for the NISH Yellow Jackets, who reached the playoffs. He intercepted three passes, including an 87-yard pick-six.
An excellent student, Lewis maintains a 3.0 GPA in an honors curriculum. He competed in the National Underclassmen Combine Top Prospect Camp in Oklahoma last weekend and spoke about the experience.
"It was super cool," Lewis said. "I had strained my hamstring the Wednesday prior to the camp, so I didn't know how much I was going to be able to do. I did good in the one-on-one drills, and then I loosened up during the two-on-two's.
"They didn't have a showcase at the end of the camp, but I really felt like I did well and showed what I can do. I had a couple of interceptions during the 7v7 and did really good. One of my picks came in the championship."
Now Lewis looks ahead to the start of his junior season next month.
"We're getting ready with good practices," he said. "We excited about playing Breaux Bridge (2011 4A semifinalist). It should be a real good game.
"We expect to do really well this year and go deeper in the playoffs. We have a lot more seniors returning this year, and everybody seems serious about things. I'm really looking forward to the season."
Lewis and his teammates tangle with Breaux Bridge in a week one matchup on August 30.
LSU and the local Ragin' Cajuns in Lafayette are two other programs that interest Lewis, who has already notched a 20 on his ACT.
