Here’s a quick update on 2-star class of 2018 defensive tackle/offensive guard Gavin Lewis, who attends Bob Jones H.S. in Madison, AL.

Lewis, who is 6-3 and 260 pounds, is being recruited by UNC as a defensive tackle. His rating of 5.4 has him on the cusp of being a 3-star prospect.

Among Lewis’ offers are from UCLA, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Virginia and Kentucky.

THI caught up with Lewis Monday morning to see how his recent visit to UNC went. Lewis said it went so well he got a chance to speak to a lot of coaches.

“I have spoken to everyone on the defensive side of the staff and the head coach (Larry Fedora) himself,” Lewis said.

Regarding Lewis’ visit, he got a full dose of the Carolina campus, the academic support and was able to spend time with some players.

“I love the educational part a lot,” he said. “I love how they are such a huge family.”

Lewis isn’t sure where UNC stands in his recruitment, though he’s very interested. Thus, he’s simply not showing his hand with just a few days before National Signing Day.

Lewis said he plans on revealing his decision on NSD.
