Dylan Lewis has frequented Tennessee Football since receiving an offer in June 2022. The 2025 cornerback was back on campus on Saturday for the Vols win over South Carolina.
Lewis ranks as a three-star prospect and the No. 45 cornerback in his class. He racked up 45 tackles and eight pass-break-ups last season.
“The environment of the game was electric every play was filled with fans yelling,” Lewis said.
The prospect out of Milton (Ga.) High School currently holds 24 scholarship offers. He spent much of pregame with current 2024 commitments Boo Carter, Edwin Spillman and Kaleb Beasley. He also got to talk to current defensive back Doneiko Slaughter.
The group all told him to “come be apart of the family.” He also got to sit down with defensive backs coach Willie Martinez during his visit.
“He keeps telling me stay humble and focus on myself,” Lewis said. “Keep developing on and off the field. He sees me playing anywhere on the field. He said if he recruits you, you can play anywhere on the field in the secondary.”
Tennessee Football shined on defense Saturday with several top prospects in attendance. The Vols were able to wreak havoc, picking up eight tackles for loss and six sacks. Kamal Hadden added a pick six to the defensive onslaught, the first defensive touchdown for the Vols since 2021.
Lewis took notice of the performance, and the scheme that Tim Banks employed.
“I like the man-to-man, best-on-best he does, let’s the secondary compete to make plays,” Lewis said. “They were putting a lot of pressure on him which caused him to make a lot of mistakes which led to turnovers.”
The 5-foot-11.5, 180-pounder expected to return to Tennessee for the Georgia game. He may even be back as soon as the Vols’ matchup with Texas A&M. Tennessee Football has separated itself from the rest of his impressive offer list.
“Tennessee is one of my top schools along with Clemson and LSU,” Lewis said.
