According to Rivals’ Justin Rowland, Kentucky is now recruiting 4-star wide receiver Roger Lewis, who currently plays for Jirah Prep in North Carolina. Lewis, originally a 2012 recruit who was committed to Ohio State, was accused of two charges of rape and acquitted on the first, while the jury was deadlocked on the second, resulting in a mistrial. In order to avoid that charge going to a second trial later this month, Lewis plead guilty to falsification, a first-degree misdemeanor, a week ago.
