Stoops adds one more to the 2013 class

Thought Mark Stoops was done with the 2013 class?

Think again.

Kentucky added Melvin Lewis, a 6-foot-4, 320-pound defensive tackle from Fullerton Community College in Fullerton, California, today.

Lewis had his first conversation with Mark Stoops and the Kentucky staff last Thursday. He was sold on the opportunity to play in the SEC.

He was also receiving interest from Miami and a number of West Coast schools.

Welcome aboard.

    Is he 230 lbs or 330 lbs? A 230 lb DT would get eaten alive in the SEC.

    Drew, I believe you meant to put 320-pound not 230-pound. Otherwise that is a tiny DT…

    We need depth at that position and he comes in ready to play. Not gonna be the next Albert Haynesworth but we don’t need him to be. There is no way he any worse than any of the youngsters that would of had to step up in his absence. Welcome to BBN!

    Drew – Are you sure it’s not 2,300 pounds? Or 23 pounds?

    7. — I think it’s 32 pounds. I’m calling Fullerton C.C. for confirmation now.

    Did I see on the site he was listed w/ a 4.9 40?

    He ran a 4.09 forty and weighs in at 396 but wants to put on a little weight he says.

    Can’t teach that kind of size (320lb)! Unless he is indeed 230lb which I beleive can be taught.

    14 comments about a typo!? Only BBN baby!! Where is Dickie V when we need him!! That must mean 5.9. If he ran a legit 4.9 at 320, everyone would be after him. Welcome to the family Melvin.

    #15, that post was not a typo but rather in fun. Weighs 396 and runs 4.09 but wants to put some weight on…LOL!

    I believe he prefers to be called Tiny.

    At 6’4″, he taller than most if not all SEC deffensive tackles. His height is going to be a dis-advantage.
