Kaiwan Lewis, a rising senior linebacker at St. Joseph of Hammonton and one of the highest recruited players in South Jersey, has made an oral commitment to attend the University of South Carolina.
The 6-foot-2, 226-pound Lewis said he chose South Carolina over Florida and Florida State. He recently made unofficial visits to all three schools.
“I felt comfortable at the campus and really liked it there,” said Lewis, who had 79 tackles and six sacks last season.
Shawnee offensive lineman Bob Bradley (6-4, 270) has recently made an oral commitment to attend Tulane.
Bradley was recruited by Tulane assistant Doug Colman, a former NFL linebacker and star from Ocean City High.
“When coach Colman came to talk to me he was really nice and seemed like a good guy and when I went down there all the other coaches were just like him,” Bradley said. “It just felt like a really good fit.”
There are 15 known commitments from rising South Jersey seniors to either Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly 1-A) or Football Championship Subdivision (formerly 1-AA) schools.
