Kaleb Blanchard interview (CLICK HERE TO LISTEN)
Lewis played linebacker and defensive end for Los Angeles Harbor Community College in California, racking up nine sacks this past season.
He chose South Alabama over Michigan, Illinois, and Houston because it was closest to his home in Louisiana.
Lewis will play the hybrid pass rusher roll for the Jags next season, at jack linebacker and stand up defensive end.
Doug Konkel of Jags Jungle.com reports that 4-star Running Back Kaleb Blanchard has committed to South Alabama.
Blanchard was originally committed to Arkansas, but opened his options after the coaching change.
He becomes the highest rated recruit in the history of South Alabama football.
Blanchard also had offers from Louisiana Tech and Ole Miss.
