Phoebus (Hampton, VA) star running back Elan Lewis appears to be eyeing the Division I-A in-state schools as well as the University of Maryland according to Phoebus Head Coach Bill Dee. Though Lewis lists a top 5 or 6, Dee believes 3 really stand out right now.
“He lists his top 5 schools but I definitely think it’s Tech, UVa and Maryland,” Dee said. “I think that’s his top 3. He likes Tennessee too and I guess the fifth one would be UNC… and maybe NC State would be there.”
Lewis may make one official visit during the high school football season and will likely take more after his season is finished. Virginia Tech appears the likely destination if he should make an official visit during the season.

“He received a flurry of offers before the end of May,” Dee said. “UNC offered him. Syracuse offered him. I think he’s got 6 or 7 offers right now.”
Also included in the offer list are Virginia Tech, Maryland, and Virginia. Tech and Maryland are high on Friday’s list right now with Virginia and Syracuse being there as well.
“Steven’s kind of in the same boat as Elan,” Dee said. ““Steven likes Tech and he likes Maryland. He likes UVa. I think he likes Syracuse too. We have a player at Syracuse in Shadeed Harris. He’s up there and he really likes it. I think they are in the...
