Cornerback Dylan Lewis announced his top schools on Friday. Tennessee made the cut along with UCF, Kentucky, North Carolina, Auburn, NC State, Clemson and LSU.
Lewis ranks as the No. 45 cornerback in his class and a three-star prospect. Out of Milton High School in Alpharetta, Georgia, he stands at 6-foot and 180 pounds.
“Commitment coming soon,” Lewis added to the post.
Lewis was most recently on campus for the Vols matchup with South Carolina. He spent a lot of time with defensive backs coach Willie Martinez during his trip.
“He keeps telling me to 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.”
He also paid attention to the Vols defense against South Carolina.
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.”
Lewis broke down his top schools with Off The Hook Sports.
Tennessee: “The constant love I get from Tennessee is unmatched.”
LSU: “LSU is known as DBU and going down there it feels like a place I can be.”
Clemson: “Clemson is like a second home, my dad grew up around Clemson and I’ve always been around the program.”
Auburn: “Auburn is looking to turn things around and looks like there heading in the right direction.”
North Carolina: “The relationship I have with UNC coaches is unmatched, they show love all the time.”
NC State: “NC state continues to be a sleeper that keeps producing talents.”
UCF: “UCF is another program trying to turn things around and showing a lot of love.”
Kentucky: “Kentucky is building a powerhouse on defense.”
