Lewis III Gives Update

Lewis III Gives Update

Peter Ariz
A lot of the talk surrounding Miami commitment Ray Lewis III (5’10”, 185) has been about what position he will play at Miami, and he says that hasn’t been completely solved yet.

“Coach Terry Richardson recruited me and we have a great relationship. I’m being recruited as a safety too, it’s either DB or running back. When I went down there to tour the school on spring break, obviously the running back coach wants me at running back, Coach Al Golden wanted me at corner, and the other defensive coaches wanted me at DB too. It’s probably gonna be one of those things where I’ll try out when I get there,” said Lewis III.

It won’t really matter to him what position he plays, because he feels comfortable at both running back and defensive back.

“I love hitting people just as much as running them over. If I’m not playing DB it’s not gonna be a big transition, I’ll just stay at running back because I don’t really have a preference. Obviously with running back, the career is a lot shorter than playing defense,” he said.

While he may not be the fastest, Ray thinks he’s well rounded at running back.

“I feel like at running back I’m explosive in and out of cuts. I have like a 4.5 hand time, but I’m not like the fastest person. I feel like I’m good at reading when the hole is not there, when to bounce it out, when to not bounce it out. Yards after contact is something else, I rarely get tackled by the first tackler. I’m a team leader too, like if somebody misses a block, instead of getting on them I just encourage them.”

Being the son of future a Hall of Famer, Lewis III thinks it’s a positive that his dad pushes him harder than others get pushed.

“He knows what it takes to get to that level. He was not somebody that was just made it to the NFL, he had to work. I feel like that’s an advantage I have over everybody else. I am pushed by him definitely, but I really don’t want to let that whole Ray Lewis thing get to me. He is my dad, but at the end of the day I still gotta go out there and play because my dad’s not gonna be playing for me,” added Lewis III.

He plans on being on campus for Rising Senior Day on August 12th.

Good luck to the young man.

Hopefully this is his way of saying he's gonna be a preferred walk-on.
 
I like that he is versatile and willing to play on either side of the ball. Would love to see this kid get ripped and taking WR's out at strong safety. Definite redshirt. Does he wear #25?
 
I think he's worthy of a scholarship if he was a fucking quadraplegic. Respect the past bro.

Get that **** out of here.
You think he's worthy of a scholly in a small class AND facing sanctions?
Yes he is worthy of the scholarship. Look at the numbers he has put up
He put up the numbers in 2a. 2A!!!!!!!

And its not about the numbers, Rashawn Scott played at a low level and most people liked his pickup. Its because RL3 is a shrimp with no physical qualifications to play at the fbs level. He's not big enough or fast enough, not even close. If his dad wasn't Ray Lewis, he wouldn't be getting a scholly.

What kind of numbers do you think Mackenroe Alexander would put up if he played for St Marys?

Its not just the past its also for the future. dude doesnt realize how much it will help with daddy ray being around the program all the time. You think if stud LB recruits come visit and see Ray hanging around that it wont make an impact on them.

Was big ray a big time stud coming in?
No, he was a state champ wrestler but was undersized
 
Idgaf if Ray Lewis' kid is a mentally retarded transvestite whose paralyzed from the neck down. That motherf*cker is getting a football scholarship.
 
I think A lot of you guys are selling him short too
 
He's actually a good player...5-star? No. A good piece to a class, big or small...yup. Can play some RB...I think he's better off as a safety over corner...he's got talent. He ain't a scrub.
