Kentucky earned a pair of commitments on Wednesday evening, and they’ll be bringing name value with them to Lexington.
Rayshad and Rahsaan Lewis, sons of NFL Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis, will transfer to Kentucky.
Today, the Lewis brothers announced they would be heading to UK, with Rayshad transferring from Maryland and Rahsaan transferring from Florida Atlantic.
Rayshad posted a brief commitment video to his own Twitter page, while Rahsaan retweeted several posts breaking the news of his transfer to Kentucky, as well.

Rayshad, who began his career at Utah State, transferred to Maryland in 2017, where he played in 22 total games. While he lined up exclusively at wide receiver at Utah State – he managed 40 receptions for 476 yards and two touchdowns as a freshman – he most recently played defensive back, receiver, and special teams for the Terrapins.
Currently listed as a wide receiver on Maryland’s official roster, the 5-foot-11, 177-pound prospect will be a graduate transfer this season in Lexington.
As for his brother, Rahsaan was a redshirt sophomore at FAU this past year, but started his career at Central Florida in 2018.
Lewis had four tackles in seven games as a true freshman at UCF before heading to FAU, where he impressed at both outside and slot receiver during fall camp last year. The 5-foot-11, 180-pound talent saw action in four games, mostly as a kick returner, allowing FAU to redshirt him.
Here are a few clips of Rayshad playing both sides of the ball and on special teams:
And some footage of Rahsaan, who also played basketball in high school:
Welcome home, Lewis brothers.
On that note, can we find a way to get Ray on staff in Lexington?
