An Interview with LB Kaiwan Lewis

Submitted by TomVH on March 8th, 2011 at 1:46 PM

Kaiwan Lewis (6'2", 230 lbs) is a linebacker prospect out of St. Joseph High School in New Jersey and has started to pick up momentum with his recruitment. With big time offers from all over the country including Arkansas, Cal, LSU, Miami, and South Carolina among others, Lewis is starting to hear more from the Michigan coaches. Here's a look at his film and what he's hearing from the Wolverines.

TOM: Have you heard anything new from the Michigan coaches recently?

KAIWAN: Yes, they really like me. They said they just have to get the head coach to view my film and I may be getting an offer.

TOM: What coach from Michigan has been recruiting you, and is Michigan a school that you want to learn more about?

KAIWAN: Coach Curt Mallory, and yes we'll see what happens.

TOM: I know you have a good amount of offers now, are you pretty open right now, and where are you at in the process?

KAIWAN: Yeah, I'm open. I'm just ready to take visits and cut the schools that I don't talk to. That will make it easier for me because I know I can't get out to every school.

TOM: When are you going to start taking these visits?

KAIWAN: Spring break.

TOM: If Michigan offers are they going to be one of your trips?

KAIWAN: Yes, I believe so. It just depends on how they recruit me because there's so many schools to get to know. I have to go see schools that catch my interest and recruit me like I'm needed or wanted.

TOM: What position is Michigan recruiting you for?

KAIWAN: Middle linebacker. They said they need big fast linebackers.

TOM: I just watched your film, and it looks like you fit that. It seems like you really like to hit.

KAIWAN: Yeah, I guess it just comes with the game. You know if people could hit me like that, or harder, they wouldn't miss the chance so I'm not going to miss mine.

TOM: When do you want to make your final decision, do you know yet?

KAIWAN: I'll wait until national signing day.

Mallory seems to be all over the place.  Is that just me?  I mean, I guess I expect to here some other names too.  Of course, this could simply be the product of hearing his name a lot recently.

He reminds me of Brandon Graham, and already being 230, I could see him growing into a DE like him.  In most of the vieo he's coming off the edge and getting tackles for a loss like Graham in his last couple years.
