Ozone Interview with Tyquan Lewis
By Michael Chung
(Editor’s Note: This is the first official contribution to the-Ozone for Michael Chung. He has provided OSU recruiting information to several websites in the past, but will now will be exclusive to the-Ozone as we look to bring more football recruiting coverage in the coming months).
Hailing from Tarboro, N.C., Tyquan Lewis has been a heavily recruited prospect since his junior season, but he appears to be winding down his recruitment this summer and the Buckeyes are still in the hunt.
At 6-3, 225 pounds, Lewis is currently listed as a weakside defensive end, but he would likely play the Viper/Leo position at Ohio State if and when he commits.
Lewis also holds offers from LSU, North Carolina, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss, Clemson and Duke, but Ohio State would appear to be among his top three choices coming down the stretch.
We recently caught up with Lewis to ask him about the recruiting process and where he stands heading into his senior season.
Ozone: Who has been your primary recruiter at OSU? What kind of relationship have you formed with him?
Coach (Everett) Withers and coach Mike Vrabel are the two I talk to the most. I am in contact with coach Vrabel more. I have a good relationship with both.
Ozone: Who are your top choices?
Ohio State, LSU, North Carolina, Vanderbilt and Ole Miss. All have offered.
Ozone: Give me the your top 3 schools of the five?
Ohio State, LSU and UNC.
Ozone: How likely are you to commit to Ohio State?
The chances of me committing to Ohio State are high but I am still deciding. North Carolina is still up there too.
Ozone: When will you announce your college choice?
Between now and through September, before October.
Ozone: If Ohio State is your choice, what position do the coaches say you will play?
Viper position, it is a combination of Defensive End and Linebacker.
Ozone: Who is recruiting you the hardest?
UNC and Ohio State are recruiting me the hardest.
Ozone: What is Ohio State doing to recruit you?
I talk to coach Vrabel on the phone twice a week. I also receive cards and communicate via Facebook. UNC is basically doing the same. I am still deciding on which college, making pros and cons lists and will announce within two months. I talk to LSU too and have talked to Les Miles once. He seems really cool.
