We’ve discussed the impact for the 2019 Texas football recruiting class of the decommitment of Oklahoma City, OK, four-star wide receiver Demariyon Houston earlier this month. For this 2019 class to get back another solid depth piece to add to the receiving corps for the upcoming freshmen class, it can look to some of its three-star targets for this recruiting cycle.
A key target that’s emerging of late for the Horns is the three-star in-state lengthy wide receiver Kennedy Lewis. This 6-foot-3 Melissa, TX, wideout is one of the most underrated high school prospects at this position in the nation. Lewis ranks as the No. 84 wide receiver in the nation and the 77th best prospect out of the state of Texas.
However, the offer list that Lewis boasts doesn’t match up too well with his recruiting ranking. Lewis holds offers from the Horns, Baylor Bears, Washington State Cougars, Oklahoma State Cowboys, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Mizzou Tigers, and Florida. He holds nearly 30 offers and has a very high ceiling at the college level.
According to the 247Sports Crystal Ball Predictions, Lewis is favored to land with Baylor at a 62 percent mark. The rest of his prediction indicator gives him a 38 percent chance to land on the Forty Acres. Texas would love to claim the win here over Baylor on the field this year and on the recruiting trail for Lewis’ commitment.
