Defensive end Aaron Lewis is a major recruit out of Williamstown, New Jersey. While he is a three-star composite recruit, 247Sports‘ internal rankings have him as a four-star player.
Lewis is pretty Big Ten-focused in his recruitment. Home state school Rutgers didn’t crack his top five, though.
Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State, and Wisconsin are all on the shortlist for the pass rusher. They’re joined by West Virginia out of the Big 12.
Aaron Lewis announced his top five schools on Tuesday afternoon.
From his Twitter account:

247’s composite rankings have Lewis at No. 420 overall. He’s the 21st-ranked strong-side defensive end, and No. 12 in the Garden State.
As of now, only one recruiting analyst has logged a prediction at the site’s crystal ball, and it has Lewis heading down to Morgantown. Obviously that is not a good enough sample to base things on, so this is wide open.
Lewis has 20 total offers as of today. The other schools involved here include Baylor, Boston College, Duke, Maryland, Nebraska, Pitt, Purdue, Rutgers, Syracuse, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Vanderbilt, Virginia, and Virginia Tech.
Clearly he’s a coveted player, and could see a big ratings bump over the next few months as we enter his senior season.
