MONROE, La. – To put it simply, senior athlete Cameron Lewis can do it all. Over the past two seasons, Lewis has starred for Wossman High School on both sides of the ball serving a multitude of roles for the Wildcats including quarterback, running back and defensive back.
In 2013 and 2014, Lewis accumulated a total of 3,000 yards all-purpose yards and 45 touchdowns on offense according to 247Sports.com. While Lewis’ defensive statistics were not available, his tape does the talking.
“Speed, explosion, play-maker,” Lewis described his game to Today’s U.
At 6’1” and 192-pounds, Lewis has the size, but more importantly the speed, to play any position at the next level. Lewis is listed as the No. 15 safety in the country but oozes potential on both sides of the ball.
Lewis’ talent is undeniable. As such, the standout athlete received top schools such as Georgia, Michigan, Notre Dame and Texas A&M before shutting down his recruitment in March. At that time, Lewis verbally pledged to nearby LSU, a school with a track record for producing highly skilled defensive backs recently.
With a host of options at the next level, Lewis is taking each step in stride.
“My recruitment was kind of slow,” said Lewis. “I was just talking to coaches and just like before I was [committed] at LSU it’s been the same, really.”
Even though many schools were in pursuit, Lewis chose LSU out of the pack thanks to a positive feeling that he has on campus.
“I feel real comfortable there,” said Lewis. “It feels like home. It’s the place to be.”
When Lewis is at the place to be, the four-star prospect says he often discusses his future role at LSU with the coaching staff.
“All the time,” said Lewis. “We have this bond and there’s no way we wouldn’t. The plan is for me at safety to come down and cover the slot receiver, play the nickel, play free safety or play strong safety. Wherever they need me, lets go.”
Lewis is enthused about his future in the LSU secondary, but the Tigers will have to keep fighting for his pledge against a slew of other top programs that are still heavily recruiting the game-breaking athlete.
In terms of official visits, Lewis has begun to map out his schedule by location.
“I haven’t really decided on any dates, but I’m going to visit Georgia, TCU and Texas A&M,” said Lewis. “Those are three schools I know for sure. I haven’t decided any dates because with my schedule so I don’t know but most likely it would be after the season so I can really know what its like to be around, spend more time with the coaches, stuff like that.”
Once that happens, Lewis will have a more definitive answer on whether he would like to spend his collegiate career at LSU. Until that happens, Lewis is focused on producing on the field once again at Wossman.
“As a team my team goal is to win a state championship and prove a lot of people wrong,” said Lewis. “Individually, I want to improve on my game on offense and defense as much as I can for my team to win the state championship.”
