OSU insider in-depth: Shaun Lewis
by Brandon Chatmon
With recruiting season in full swing, I will be evaluating all 26 prospects who are currently committed to the Oklahoma State football program. I will go in alphabetical order and will post three or four evaluations per day during the next week.
My evaluations will conclude next Friday when I rank OSU’s commitments including their chances of having an immediate impact in Stillwater.
Shaun Lewis, Missouri City (Texas) Hightower
Ht, Wt: 6-1, 205
Vitals: 4.5 in the 40, 315 bench, 485 squat
Picked OSU over… Oklahoma, Alabama, Florida, LSU, Notre Dame, UCLA and others
Pros: Lewis is an explosive football player who is ideal for the linebacker position currently manned by Andre Sexton. He’s a bit undersized but he’s athletic with great acceleration and play making ability. His exceptional quickness allows him to navigate through blocks to make plays.
Cons: If he plays the “Star” linebacker spot, he’ll have to get more comfortable in pass coverage. Also could use a year in the weight room.
Expect an impact in… 2010. Lewis is a special talent who I’d expect to play as a true freshman. I think he’ll have an impact on special teams and crack OSU’s two-deep at linebacker during his first year on campus.
Here’s Lewis in action (#11 in white):
