I caught up with Lewis to ask him about recruitment:
BYU Insider: Why do you feel BYU is a good fit for you?
Lewis: because of course the LDS influence there is which is a big part of my life and the coaching staff which is one of the best you’ll find anywhere. I felt a huge family atmosphere when I met most of the coaches because they didn’t seem like just a coaching staff but more than that they were best friends and had so much fun together.
BYU Insider: What current or former BYU player do you admire and why?
Lewis: Drew Eide because he played at SUU with my brother and I knew him well and I always thought he was a stud player and person
BYU Insider: What are some of your favorites?
Lewis: Linkin Park (band), and my favorite food is chips and salsa
BYU Insider: Who is a current player (collegiate or pro) that you seek to emulate on the field?
Lewis: my O-Line Idol is Tyron Smith (Dallas Cowboys) because he’s so nasty and I love to watch him play
