South Central defensive end Jeremy Lewis made his verbal commitment to the East Carolina football team on Thursday afternoon, and in the process, he joined fellow local prospects Keziah Everett of Farmville Central and CJ Johnson of D.H. Conley as some of the most talented players in a quickly growing 2019 class.

“I really didn't want to be too far from home, and I wanted to carry on the legacy of my brother (former ECU defensive lineman Kiante Anderson), and my mama and my granddad, staying close to them,” Lewis said. “I was going to shine no matter where I went.”

Lewis relied heavily on his brother during his recruiting process. Anderson graduated from ECU in May. 

“(I relied on him) a lot through this whole process and this whole situation as to where I should go,” he said. “He gave me the pros and cons, the ups and downs, he took me places and where I needed to go. He was a big part of my recruiting process and my decision making.”

Lewis’ choice to announce his verbal commitment prior to his senior season came due in large part to rosters quickly filling at other schools.

“Some of the scholarship (offers) that I have, I was getting phone calls telling me, ‘Rosters are getting filled up fast.’ The was helping it a lot, and plus, I knew I wanted to be a Pirate,” Lewis said. 

SC coach Andy Tew said he was proud of Lewis for his commitment but was ready to get back to focusing on the team’s upcoming season. 

“I’m excited for him. He was able to go ahead and get it out of the way so now we can focus on Falcon football,” Tew said. “I look forward to what his future holds.”

With his verbal commitment out of the way, Lewis will be totally focused on bringing the Falcons home a state title. SC opens its season on the road Aug. 17, when the Falcons travel to face Greene Central.
