Three-Star Alabama Wide Receiver Chris Lewis Commits to Kentucky

The Kentucky Wildcats have added another talented wide receiver to their 2021 recruiting class.

Christian “Chris” Lewis announced he has committed to Kentucky over Notre Dame. The 6-foot-3 wide receiver had offers from 39 schools, including Louisville, Oregon, Arkansas, Tennessee, Texas A&M and Nebraska.

Lewis is the 12th member of UK’s 2021 recruiting class that has loaded up on wide receiver talent. The four highest-ranked players in the class according to the 247 Sports Composite are all wide receivers. Lewis ranks second behind only Dekel Crowdus.

In 2019 the versatile athlete posted crazy numbers for Pleasant Grove High School, recording 75 receptions for 1,398 yards and 20 touchdowns. Lewis helped Pleasant Grove reach the 5A State Championship Game. He caught two touchdown passes before the Spartans were stopped one yard short of the end zone on the final play of the game, falling by a final score of 30-27.

Another recruiting win for Jon Sumrall, UK’s inside linebackers coach has now convinced four players from the Deep South to commit to UK’s 2021 recruiting class. If you take a look at Lewis’ highlight reel, it’s not hard to tell that he could be special for the Big Blue Nation.

    That’s great news! I’ve been impressed with Stoops and Company since the beginning. Sure, it was a rocky start the first few years, but you could tell he had the long term in mind with how he was redshirting some talented incoming freshmen. He’s continued with some great o-lines, linebackers, and DB’s. The games have been smashmouth and fun to get behind. The D-line has since those first several years been shaping up nicely, he’s picked up some talented QB’s and now the WR’s are coming. To be fair, lack of depth at QB hasn’t allowed the WR to be showcased, but I think the depth of both have been improving through the years.

      Do you have to work really hard at being such a turd, or does it come naturally?

      I think this is the account mashburnfan uses to criticize UK football.

      We made the mistake of saying he was to easy on football. Of course he also sounds like a Card fan talking about any of their sports, strongly overestimating everything.
