Update On 5* Terrence Lewis + NSD ’21 Preview

by | Dec 15, 2020 | Checkerboard Check-In, Reporting | 0 comments

The early signing period for college football is quickly approaching, as it is set to begin this Wednesday the 16th of December and run through Friday the 18th. Student athletes of the 2021 class will have the opportunity to sign on the dotted line with the school of their choose and prepare to enroll in the coming months.

Tennessee will be welcoming in many incoming freshmen as they have already set up plans for their signing ceremonies. There is one recruit who was originally committed to Tennessee that will also be signing during this time, but will not be making his announcement public just yet.

Five-star linebacker Terrence Lewis committed to Tennessee back on April 30th of this year, but announced via Twitter on November 30th that he was reopening his recruitment. The tweet read, “I would like to take the time out to announce that I’ll be de-committing from The University of Tennessee. There’s no love lost they’re still my top school as of now but I need these next couple weeks to explore my options to make sure I make the best decision for my future.”

At the time Lewis decommitted from Tennessee, the thought was that Auburn was leading the charge with Miami and Texas A&M right there as well. Tennessee was still in consideration according to Lewis, but it seemed as though they had lost their chance at retaining the coveted linebacker.

However, Auburn has since fired head coach Gus Malzahn and this more than likely means the current staff in place at Auburn could be let go when a new coach is hired. This coaching change, along with the relentless pursuit by inside linebacker coach Brian Niedermeyer has seemed to have put Tennessee back in a good position with Lewis.

The five-star took to Twitter again on Monday to release his “Final 2” schools, which included Tennessee and Maryland. It seemed a bit shocking to see Maryland included in his top-2 schools, but according to Andrew Ivins of 247Sports, “Maryland assistant Brian Williams is a South Florida native and has a relationship with Lewis.”

It has been known for a while that Niedermeyer and Lewis have a strong relationship, as that was one of the main reasons why Lewis committed to the Vols originally. When asked about what will be the deciding factors as he nears a decision, Lewis answered, “Just a coach that I got a good relationship with. Somewhere I feel comfortable. I think the biggest part for me, is me playing early because I’m trying to get out in three years. That’s the goal.”

Tennessee provides Lewis with a chance to play early, as it is believed that he could compete for playing time at one of the inside linebacker positions from day one. But when will a decision be made?

The plan as of now is for Lewis to sign with a school on Wednesday during the early signing period, but make the announcement public January 2nd on NBC during the 2021 All-American Bowl.

Hopefully, Lewis is able to keep this a secret until then so he can have his moment, but unfortunately information is sometimes leaked which ruins the kid’s plans of announcing where they will be going.

Regardless, we will have coverage of all things regarding Tennessee during the early signing period and much more in the coming days across all VRS platforms (VRS, More Important Issues, and Checkerboard Check-In).

Bat Flip Tennessee Vols Baseball Show – March 24,2021

Ninth-ranked Tennessee jumped on EKU early and cruised to a 13-5 win at Lindsey Nelson Stadium that didn’t do anything to halt the Vols’ momentum heading into a big weekend series against 15th-ranked LSU.

Home runs from junior third baseman Trey Lipscomb and sophomore shortstop Cortland Lawson highlighted a seven-run fifth inning that gave Tennessee a 13-2 cushion and the ability to mix in even more reserves down the stretch.
