Ray Lewis III commits to Miami
By Matt Fortuna
This piece of news makes me feel old.
Lake Mary Prep (Lake Mary, Fla.) athlete Ray Lewis III — yes, the son of that Ray Lewis — committed Tuesday to Miami .
The 5-foot-9, 190-pound Lewis III plays on both sides at Lake Mary, rushing for 2,321 yards and 29 touchdowns during his junior season while adding 91 tackles and one sack.
"I would say he's probably a better fit as a defensive back and I believe he would make a fantastic free safety," Lewis III's coach, Buck Gurley, told our Corey Long. "But he can also be a very good running back behind a strong offensive line."
Committing nearly 19 years after his famous father first suited up for the Hurricanes, Lewis III is the fifth member of Miami's 2013 recruiting class.
