Three-star Ocala Trinity Catholic tackle Miller Merriweather-Lewis became the third 2020 prospect to decommit over the weekend, officially announcing his decision via Twitter on Sunday.
I am no longer committed to USF. My recruitment is 100% open.— Miller Lewis (@big_m60) December 15, 2019
Previously rated a four-star by Rivals, Lewis highlighted a haul of prospects USF reeled in back on June 16, choosing the Bulls over offers from heavyweights like LSU, Auburn and Michigan.
Attending the same school where offensive coordinator Kerwin Bell once won a state championship in the mid-aughts, the sought-after OT helped block for a Celtic offense that sprung running back Jamarian Samuel to over 2,000 yards rushing this fall. OCT would go make it all the way to the FHSAA Class 3A, Region 1 semifinal.
His departure officially makes five decommits since the firing of Charlie Strong on Dec. 1. Per 247, this drops USF’s 2020 class down to 10th in the AAC (fifth in average rating) and 96th in the nation just days away from the start of the early signing period.
Like Jamie literally just said, the sky isn’t falling. There’s a larger process at work here.
