Tennessee football has been very active in the state of Georgia. Dylan Lewis, a 2025 prospect out of Milton (Ga.) High School, has been feeling the love from the Vols.
Tennessee extended Lewis a scholarship offer last June. He and his teammate Shamar Arnoux both received offers after a strong showing at one of Tennessee’s camps. Since, Arnoux has committed to Tennessee.
“We both went out there and camped,” Lewis told Off The Hook. “We competed real hard and both earned offers. Ever since then, Tennessee has just been the top school for me.”
Lewis described his bond with Arnoux as “brothers.” Both Arnoux and Lewis play in the secondary, a position Tennessee has highlighted as one of need.
“I wasn’t really surprised,” Lewis said of Arnoux’s commitment. “It was his top school, but I didn’t expect him to do it right now. He actually did it. It was cool to see it.”
Lewis said he plans to make his college decision sometime in the summer. Ranked as a three-star prospect, he has a lot of schools calling his name.
Lewis currently holds four SEC offers with LSU, Kentucky and Auburn being his most recent ones.
“It really got started for me the summer going into my sophomore year, I was visiting schools and camping,” Lewis said of his recruitment. “It blew up really when I got Tennessee when I went to camp there, ever since then it took off for me.”
The 5-foot-11.5 and 180-pound defensive back knows what he is looking for in a school.
“Development is the biggest part,” Lewis said. “From development, how can you develop me on and off the field as a man and as a player.”
Lewis was last in Knoxville in March, and he got the chance to interact with head coach Josh Heupel and other members of the coaching staff. He said Heupel kept telling him, “Come be a Vol.”
“The communication aspect of it,” Lewis said. “When I talk to a coach there, they don’t just talk about football they talk about life and other things beyond that. I feel like that’s a big part because it’s not just all about football there’s more to it. That’s what I like about them.”
Lewis has high goals for his upcoming season, including breaking the Milton interception record of 12.
“That’s one of my biggest goals,” Lewis said. “I want to be Defensive Player of the Year for the region, and make All-State.”
