OSU football recruiting: Cowboys' cornerback recruit Taylor Lewis a 'workaholic'

BY SCOTT WRIGHT, Staff Writer, Published: February 5, 2013

Here's a word Oklahoma State fans will love to hear about one of their future cornerbacks, DeSoto, Texas, product Taylor Lewis.


“His work ethic is unbelievable,” DeSoto coach Claude Mathis said. “He's always staying after to work on something. He's just a workaholic.”

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound Lewis combines cornerback speed with a long body to make him versatile in pass coverage.

He'll join an Oklahoma State secondary with several seniors in starting spots come fall, so the opportunity for playing time might not be immediate, but it's looming in the near future.

Lewis finished with four interceptions and 52 tackles for DeSoto as a senior.

Initially committed to Kansas, Lewis changed course in early December, flipping to the Cowboys — one of a few previously committed players the OSU staff was able to turn in their favor.

“Taylor had a lot of offers out there,” Mathis said. “But he's really comfortable at Oklahoma State. I think he's in a place that's gonna be good for him.”
