    Elan Lewis
    Running back
    Hampton Phoebus
    Height: 5-foot-8
    Weight: 215 pounds
    40-yard dash: 4.5 seconds
    Bench max: 365 pounds
    Squat max: 725 pounds
    Verticle jump: 28 inches
    GPA: 2.7

    Soph stats: 1,866 yds, 18 TD's
    Junior stats: 2,472 yds, 40 TD's

    Rivals #13 RB prospect nationally (4* rating), #3 prospect overall in Virginia
    Insiders #16 RB prospect nationally (4* rating)

    Audibles: "He is a true All-American; there is not a more talented running back in the country. We don’t get the same exposure here in the Tidewater area and I can’t figure out why, we have produced some great football players. Elan is a five-star prospect." - Phoebus coach William Dee

    "He works extremely hard in the weight room now. He squats over 700 pounds, which is amazing for a high school kid. He just has tremendous leg strength. We are going to continue to work on his overall strength. We’d like to get his forty time down a bit and keep his size and even improve his upper body strength a little bit. I’m sure he’s capable of benching 400 or better." - Phoebus coach William Dee

    Lewis claims offers from Ohio State, Wake Forest, Virginia, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, Tennessee, Maryland, North Carolina, and Syracuse; according to various old Rivals articles, he has no leaders at this point, but Ohio State is listed as a "top 5" school in his data base, with "medium" interest.

    However, according to Insiders' Miller Safrit, Lewis has a top 3 of Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Maryland; Insiders on Elan Lewis (8/3/04)

    Lewis' Phoebus team is ranked the #22 high school team nationally by PrepNation: PrepNation pre-season Top 25

    From what i have read he is pretty much Virginia's #1 target for the rest of the year. Given that the Cavs have almost filled their class, and that Phoebus is a bit of a pipeline school to the Cavs, I would put big $$$ on him becoming a Cavalier. Still, it's nice to dream.....................

    UVa is also going hard after RB's Mikell Simpson and Shane Brooks (each of whom is looking at Ohio State as well). Only one of the three will end up a Cavalier.

    Pheobus is more of a pipeline to VTech vice UVA...The chances of Lewis going to UVA are little to none..

    Elan confirms tOSU is in his top 5 with Va Tech, Virginia, Maryland, Tennessee. He likes tOSU's tradition and has considered going away from home to go to school. It still sounds like a long shot but if we get a visit who knows?

    Incredible squat numbers- those are MoC numbers.

    Compare the pic above (white jersey/no pads) with the one above that (blue jersey/in pads)...huge difference in size in the two pics. Definitely has been hitting the weight room hard.

    Either that or he's wearing shoulder pads. Moron.

    Uh, Einstein, check out the difference in his arms and neck. :roll1: Inbred retard.

    Sorry Mil, you can't see his biceps in the first pic and his forearms don't look too different. The shadow in the second picture add somewhat to the appearance of bulk but the different angle makes it impossible gauge any difference in his neck by eyeballing it alone.

    The shoulder pads comment was certainly inane, but the pictures aren't good indicators.

    Would be interesting to see when they were both taken though.
