Lewis is a dual threat QB from Melissa, Texas, who likes the idea of playing at TCU for a variety of reasons.
“I’ve been wanting the offer for a long time; really ever since I went to their camp last summer and went to their practice,” he said. “I’ve been wanting to get this (offer) for a long time because I really like TCU. I love Coach (Sonny) Cumbie and Coach (Gary) Patterson; they’re real friendly and just good people in general. I like how they run practice and it’s just fun to be around great coaches; like I said I love the coaches and everyone was real friendly. I love the vibe that they gave off.”
