Late Wednesday, BYU football got yet another 2018 commitment in offensive lineman Tysen Lewis, a Utah local from Weber High School.
Extremely excited to announce my commitment to BYU! #GoCougs @CoachEmpey @kalanifsitake @Coach_Kaufusi pic.twitter.com/P7qVUp00KW— Tysen lewis (@bigtlew72) June 15, 2017
Lewis is listed as 6’5” and 255 pounds on his Hudl bio, but has since bulked up past that listed weight. As a junior, he was named to the All-Region 1 team in Utah’s 5-A classification and was 2nd team All-Area by the Ogden Standard-Examiner.
Lewis also held an offer from Utah State, and his recruitment from D-I programs was picking up steam at the time of his commitment.
He participated in a camp at BYU and left with an offer, according to a story from the Standard-Examiner — which says when he announced his offer, BYU OL coach Mike Empey texted him to ask if that could be taken as a commitment.
Turns out, it could.
His commitment follows several others for the 2018 class. Earlier Wednesday, 3-star Arkansas linebacker Oliver Nasilai pledged to BYU.
Tuesday, BYU hauled in commitments from American Fork WR Chase Roberts, who is expected to be one of the top 2019 receivers in Utah, and 2018 walk-ons Cash Peterman (kicker/punter) and Austin Riggs (long snapper) to sure up the kicking game.
Below are some of Lewis’s highlights:
