Alabama football recruiting: 4-star LB Leo Lewis commits to Crimson Tide

The Alabama Crimson Tide are having one of the greatest recruiting days we have ever seen, at least this early in the process.

The Tide have no received a commitment from 4-star linebacker Leo Lewis, making that four of the top 88 players in 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings that have given their pledge to the Tide on Saturday.

It started with 5-star cornerback Minkah Fitzpatrick, who gave his pledge to the coaches and 4-star safety/wide receiver/athlete Shawn Burgess-Becker, who announced his decision via twitter after the Tide’s annual spring game. Then, 4-star wide receiver Calvin Ridley, Burgess-Becker’s high school teammate, decided to hop on the train and announced his intentions to play for the Tide.

The 6’3, 225-pound Lewis attends Brookhaven High School in Brookhaven, Mississippi, meaning all four commitments on the day are from out of the state of Alabama.

Lewis is ranked as the fifth-best inside linebacker prospect in the country, the third-best overall prospect in the state of Mississippi and the 68th-best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.

Lewis chose the Tide over offers from the Auburn Tigers, Clemson Tigers, Notre Dame Fighting Irish and both in-state powers, the Mississippi State Bulldogs and Ole Miss Rebels.
