Dion Lewis left upstate New York for Blair Academy of New Jersey to help his football recruiting profile. Well, the plan worked! According to the Lewis Commits to Play for Pitt and Dave Wannstedt's program over interest from Wake Forest, Cincinnati, Connecticut, Tulane, Miami of Ohio and Temple.
"I just felt comfortable with the coaches and facilities there," Lewis, who played at Albany High before transferring to Albany Academy in 2006, told the Times-Union.
Lewis helped Blair Academy, a prep school located in Blairtown, N.J., to an 8-1 record in 2007 by rushing for 979 yards (on 79 carries) for 14 touchdowns and adding 45 tackles, five interception and three defensive touchdowns.
