Paul Lewis' work habits were put to the test when he tore his anterior cruciate ligament during his junior season.

His reward for getting through the rehab process was the chance to commit to OSU after the school reaffirmed its interest during a minicamp last summer. He pledged to the Cowboys after an unofficial visit in late July.

“He came back from that (injury) because he was willing to work hard and rehab properly,” said Lewis' high school coach, David Aymond. “He came back in a hurry and had a great senior year.”

The 6-foot-3, 265-pound lineman is rated a three-star prospect and the No. 16 center in the nation by Rivals. OSU loses its top two centers in Grant Garner and Casey LaBrue, as well as guard Nick Martinez.

Lewis is part of the OSU pipeline established at North Shore, as Cowboy cornerbacks Miketavious Jones and Larry Stephens are both from that high school.
