According to multiple reports, Virginia Tech’s football program has picked up its eighth verbal commitment of the 2010 recruiting class. Bishop Kearney (Rochester, N.Y.) standout athlete Jerome Lewis reportedly pledged to Virginia Tech over offers from East Carolina, Minnesota, Pitt, Purdue and Syracuse.
At 6-4, 220 pounds, Lewis enjoyed success on both sides of the ball last season as a junior. He hauled in 10 receptions for 348 yards and one touchdown at tight end and totaled 56 tackles with seven sacks at defensive end. A good combination of size and athleticism (a forward, he helped Bishop Kearney to a state championship in basketball this past season), Lewis would appear to have potential on either side of the ball on the college level.
Lewis is Virginia Tech’s third out-of-state commitment for the 2010 class, joining Atlantic (Delray Beach, FL) quarterback Mark Leal and H.D. Woodson (Washington, D.C.) quarterback Ricardo Young. Stay tuned to TSL for more on this commitment in the coming days.
