Buckeyes offer Lewis

Jaason Lewis is one of the top 2015 prospects in the country. On Thursday night, Virginia Beach (Va.) Ocean Lakes playmaker picked up a scholarship offer No. 11 from Ohio State

Jaason Lewis has become one of the most sought-after prospects in the 2015 class.

Last night, Ohio State became the latest school to offer him.

"I got a call from my coach and he told me they had offered me," the 6-foot-3, 233-pound Lewis. "I didn't know what to say – I couldn't believe it. I'm really excited."

"I'm still considering everyone. But this is definitely a big one and I'm definitely going to be looking at them."

The role he would have in the Buckeyes' offense appeals to him.

"The way they want me to play in their offense, I would get to move around and show my versatility," he said. "Basically, the same thing I do at Ocean Lakes. I'd be moving around a lot – playing wide receiver, running back, tight end – kind of like Aaron Hernandez (former Florida and current New England Patriot tight end)."

Along with the Buckeyes, Lewis claims offers from East Carolina, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Michigan, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Old Dominion, Tennessee, Virginia and Virginia Tech. Michigan State and Notre Dame are also showing a significant amount of interest.

Lewis has some trips in mind for the summer.

"I know I'm going to Ohio State," said Lewis. "I'm also going to try to visit Tennessee and Georgia, too."

On top of the numerous scholarship offers, Lewis was also recently selected to play in the 2015 Army All-American Bowl.

"It's just a great feeling," he said. "I've wanted to go to that bowl game since Eli Harold (former Ocean Lakes star) played in it. It means a lot to have an opportunity to play in the game."

After losing in the state championship game last season, Lewis has only one goal this fall.

"Basically, state championship – nothing else," he said.

Last season, Lewis had over 700 yards of total offense and six touchdowns.

This past winter, Lewis ran track for the Dolphins and clocked a 6.62-second 55-meter dash.
