Football commitment game recaps

Here’s your weekly recap of all Maryland football commitments’ high school games.

Justin Lewis -- 6-foot-4, 285-pound offensive guard from Johnsonville (S.C.)

Johnsonville (4-6) was crushed by Carvers Bay, 48-0.

Lewis collected six tackles and one quarterback pressure, while grading out at 86 percent of his blocks on offense.

“We finished the season, unfortunately,” said Johnsonville head coach Lewis Lineberger.
"[Justin] played pretty well the last couple weeks. He played the best he’s played all year. …

"We were disappointed with our season. We didn’t play as well as we thought we could have. But I think he played well overall. I think he probably didn’t have quite as good a year as he did last year. But I think he has great potential and will do well in college.”

Lineberger said he believes in-state schools Clemson and South Carolina could eventually offer scholarships to Lewis, but the Terp commit is “pretty well set.”

“There are other people looking at him, but right now he is completely committed to Maryland.”

For the season, Lewis contributed 36 tackles, one sack, five tackles for loss, nine quarterback pressures and one recovered fumble. Lineberger estimated that Lewis graded out at over 80 percent of his blocks on offense.
