After an 1100 yard, 11 touchdown junior season, 6’3” Melissa High School (Melissa, TX) wide receiver Kennedy Lewis started getting notice. 28 offers later, he has made a decision on his future, as the three star prospect committed to the Horned Frogs Tuesday night.
Lewis was offered by TCU on his official visit last weekend, and though he didn’t commit on the spot, he came away impressed by what he saw, according to Jeremy Clark of 247 Sports. “I had an amazing time; I love the coaches and I couldn’t ask for any better coaches at that school,” he said. “I got to hang out with the players and you can see the bond they have and how close they are and how they can as a team be a family. That’s what I’m looking for in a school; the family aspect. I couldn’t have asked for anything better on the trip.”
Lewis has been offered by 19 Power Five schools, including Texas, Texas Tech, Baylor, Missouri, Nebraska, and Washington - who he is scheduled to visit this weekend. He is the first wide receiver to commit to the Frogs in the class of 2019, and the 14th player overall. Earlier Tuesday, TCU saw offensive lineman Justin Osborne de-commit, so the good news was certainly welcome.
A certain TCU QB seemed pretty excited about the decision, as well.

Tall and strong, Lewis excels at hauling in 50-50 balls and has an impressive catch radius. Physically, he is reminiscent of Josh Doctson, but obviously has a long way to go to live up to that comp. Lewis is fast, too, with a 4.5 to his credit. He has shown the ability to turn short catches into big plays, runs nice routes, and does a really good job of tracking the ball in the air and making adjustments to haul it in. He has the ability to shrug off tackles and shows breakaway speed.
