Lewis Anxious For Options
Patrick Lewis profile Lewis and teammate Alex Singleton both picked up verbal offers from Tennessee towards the end of last season, but things have been awfully quiet out of Knoxville since the staff experienced some turnover. "I don't have any other offers yet," said Patrick. "A lot of schools are showing me interest. Mississippi State is showing me a whole lot of attention. Coach Pat Washington told me that they are looking to build a winning program with a lot of tradition and that I am the kind of player that could help them with that." Due to some scheduling issues, the talented sled pusher has been unable to attend many college junior days. "It seems like all of the Junior Days were on days that I couldn't get there," said Patrick. "Me and Alex are going on an unofficial visit to Auburn next weekend. We are going to their spring game. I was scheduled to go to Ole Miss, but Coach Dau (Dauterive) told us to go to the Junior day at Southeastern (Louisiana) instead." Lewis says that he is on the road towards NCAA freshman certification and his academic standing has begun to get the attention of college recruiters. "I talked with a coach from Louisiana Tech and I told him that I was going to academically qualify," said Patrick. "I already have a 17 on the ACT, but I am going to take it again. I want a 20. Louisiana Tech said they really like me and they are going to evaluate me and get back in touch with me. They get to make one call pretty soon, so I am hoping that when they call they are calling with a scholarship offer." Patrick reports that he is anxious to begin spring football and he has some tentative plans for the summer camp tour. "I am thinking about going to camp at out the University of Houston," said Lewis. "I know I will be going to LSU for their first session and I may go to Alabama. Things could change a lot between now and then. If I get an offer from somebody, I would go to their camp too."
