Texas three-star wide receiver Detron Lewis (5-11.5, 185, 4.55), from College Station A&M Consolidated, continues to deny a leader, but now favors Nebraska, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, Arkansas and UTEP. All of his favorites have offered.
"I had my official visit to UTEP back in September," Lewis said. "I really liked it and a lot of guys from my school are getting offers from UTEP. Coach Mike Price is a great coach. He's really hands on. I love that about him.
I went on my official visit with Daniel Palmer (running back) and C.J. Parish (strongside linebacker)--they both go to my school. Palmer made his decision to go to UTEP before he went on the official visit and Parish still hasn't decided. It's between UTEP and Baylor for him. I really try not to talk to the guys a lot about their decision; it's a personal matter that we are all struggling with. It's on our minds 24/7 right now. The last thing they need is for another player asking them where they think they are going to go. The decision-making process is long and boring. I just want to get it out of the way. I'll make my decision whenever I make it. I have no timeline.
"All the schools say that I have a really good shot at playing early. It would be nice, but it isn't the main factor. I'm also looking at academics and distance.
"I'll be going on my official visit to Texas Tech this weekend (December 8)," he said. "Coach Brian Mitchell (cornerbacks) has been talking with me for a while now. I really like him. As far as coaches go, I don't think I could go wrong with Coach Mitchell. I'm keeping an open mind. There is absolutely no leader right now. My decision will be based on my official visits. I will be taking all five visits. I'm in the process of planning my visits now.
"I haven't talked to Arkansas in the past few weeks. I really don't know why. I don't think they have backed off for any reason. I hope there isn't a problem. I'm sure Coach Gus Malzahn (offensive coordinator/wide receivers) has just been busy, just like me.
"I just spoke to Coach Shawn Watson (tight ends) from Nebraska yesterday," Lewis said. "He said that they really need a speedy receiver. I want to feel like I can add something to my team. I feel that with Nebraska.
"I really don't know a whole lot about any of these schools. They are all recruiting me as a receiver and they all throw the ball a lot. They all have potential and it's just too early to tell where I will be going. My parents don't have a preference, though I am looking at colleges somewhat close to home. I want to be independent yet close to home."
Final senior stats (8-2): 39 rec/776 yds/7 TDs.
Lewis reports a 2.3 core GPA and 1040 SAT--will retake.
