Big Florida lineman has Clemson on his mind

Ocala (Fla.) Vanguard offensive lineman Miller Lewis is one of the best young prospects in the Sunshine State and already has more than a dozen offers to show for it.

Only a sophomore in the class of 2020, Lewis stands at 6-foot-4, 300 pounds. That size along with his athleticism has attracted plenty of attention from college programs early in his recruiting process.

Lewis visited Clemson in the spring with a bus tour group of teammates, and after seeing what it has to offer, Clemson is a school he has on his mind.

“There are several schools I would like to hear from, but Clemson is one of them,” Lewis told The Clemson Insider.

Clemson’s tradition, specifically rubbing Howard’s Rock and running down the hill, stood out to Lewis and has stuck with him.

“It would make me feel like I’m a part of generations of ‘family’ and I am walking in their footsteps,” he said of the tradition.

What would it mean to Lewis to add an offer from Clemson in the future?

“It would be great knowing that the coaches of the current national champions would think that I could contribute to future championships,” he said.

Auburn, Florida, Georgia, Miami, Michigan, Southern Cal and Texas A&M highlight Lewis’s list of 14 offers.

As he goes through the course of his recruitment, Lewis is looking for the complete package in a school.

“I know education comes first,” he said. “I want to find a place that I would want to be even if I wasn’t playing football.”

Lewis feels Florida and Miami have shown the most early interest. He wants to take his time with the recruiting process, soak it in and wait until his senior year to commit.
