Lewis, a three-star recruit on Mater Dei, was part of Rutgers 2017's recruitment course, but spent a preparatory year at the Milford Academy in New York. He qualified last fall and signed in January. He has been shooting the heads since spring training and should have a chance to immediately take on a role in a pickup corps that lacks experience and proven production.
Maturity "is probably the thing I've seen most of" Lewis, Ash said:
"I think I'd go to preschool to learn more about football, more about his business, more about it, a good teammate, "said Ash. "I like Eddie, he's doing a great job right now."
Ash likened Lewis to Matt Bo Melton, who has a sensational spring. Melton saw Rutgers growing pain as a true freshman. While Lewis was preparing for the University Ball campus. Now both are in the fold and will star in 201
"Eddie has a lot of talent, good ball skills, and he's still learning what to do in the broader receiver position," added Ash. "But he's a great addition to our team and hopefully he'll be a great playmaker on match day as we go through the season."
