Lewis making his rounds

Southwestern Pulaski (Ky.) tackle Rob Lewis has all the measurables necessary to be a high major D-1 player. As he makes his rounds to each campus and as coaches see his video, he will begin to pile up offers.

Southwestern Pulaski (Ky.) tackle Rob Lewis has all the measurables necessary to be a high major D-1 player. As he makes his rounds to each campus and as coaches see his video, he will begin to pile up offers.

Standing at 6-foot-5, 290-pounds, Rob Lewis looks the part of a defensive lineman. Lewis also put up good numbers this season with 11 sacks and 40 tackles.

"I played really well," said Lewis. "I made All-State again. I made it as a sophomore too. It was a more productive year," Lewis continued.

But Lewis still plans on improving his already impressive ability.

"I want to get better at my technique. I'm working on taking on double teams. I need to make sure I can get better at defeating doubles when I get to college. I'm just making sure I can get a lot of reps. There's nothing specific I can do. I just have to keep working on it," he continued.

Often players of Lewis's size tend to depend on that size only, but Lewis is also a quick player for his size.

"I would say how big I am and how I use my speed (are my strengths)," he said. "People don't think I'm so quick. But I use my speed and strength to out play the offensive line," he finished.

There are several schools checking Lewis out right now and he's had a chance to visit a few of those schools.

"Illinois, Indiana, Northwestern and Ball State are really interested. I'm getting a lot of mail from Nebraska and Georgia. And of course Kentucky is pretty highly interested in me," he continued.

"We went to spring practices at Indiana, Purdue, Illinois, Northwestern and Ball State. We actually watched spring practice and talked with their coaches," he said.

Lewis also got a chance to check out Kentucky's Junior Day and meet the staff.

"It was great (at UK). Meeting Joker Phillips was great. It's another place that's high up there on my list of schools," he said.

Lewis hasn't made plans to visit anybody else specifically but he hopes to visit Kentucky for their spring scrimmage and some other schools. He will also camp at a few places during the off-season.

"I have been invited to several camps, but I haven't decided on anything yet," he finished.
