The Kentucky Wildcats have now added a talented wide receiver to their 2021 recruiting class.
Three-star Christian “Chris” Lewis from Pleasant Grove (AL) took to Twitter on Tuesday to announce that he is committing to Kentucky.
Lewis picked the Wildcats over Notre Dame, but the 6-3 receiver also had offers from 39 other schools, including Oregon, Tennessee, Louisville, Arkansas, Nebraska, and Texas A&M.
The 2021 recruiting class now had 12 members with the four highest-ranked players, according to the 247 Sports Composite Rankings, being wide receivers. Lewis is ranked second in the class so far behind only Dekel Crowdus.
During the 2019 season, Lewis recorded 75 receptions for 1,398 yards and 20 touchdowns. He helped lead Pleasant Grove to the 5A State Championship Game where he had two scoring receptions before his team was stopped at the 1-yard line on the final play of the game, losing 30-27.
Lewis was recruited by Kentucky’s inside linebackers coach Jon Sumrall, who has now convinced four players from the deep south to commit to Kentucky for the 2021 class.
Based on what he has accomplished in high school, Lewis will have the potential to be something very special during his time in Lexington, and the BBN should be very excited about this commitment.
