Mater Dei 3-star wide receiver Eddie Lewis will sign with Rutgers on Wednesday, Lewis told NJ.com Tuesday night.
Lewis held offers from 12 schools, including Syracuse Boston College, Duke, North Carolina, Iowa, and Temple. However his recruitment ultimately came down to two programs: Rutgers and Indiana.
But because of the coaching changes that took place within the Hoosiers staff, Indiana simply ran out of time. Lewis had already planned his visit to Rutgers on the weekend of Jan. 20. He was scheduled to visit Indiana this past weekend, but after finishing his trip to Piscataway, the wide receiver decided he had seen enough.
"I'm just blessed to be a Scarlet Knight and will do my best to represent my state and family well," Lewis said.
A third-team all state selection, Lewis racked up 42 receptions for 847 yards and 15 TDs to go along with 42 carries for 188 yards on the ground in 2016. He also helped lead the Mater Dei Seraphs to a non-public group 2 title win over Holy Spirit.
