UK Commit Christian Lewis Carves up the Competition

One future Kentucky Wildcat had a field day Friday night.

The Alabama high school football spotlight was on Christian Lewis as his Pleasant Grove Spartans, state runners-up in 2019 and currently ranked second in class 5A, hosted the second-ranked 6A team, the Oxford Yellow Jackets.

It was also a little rivalry game preview. Oxford’s Roc Taylor, a 6-foot-4 four-star wide receiver according to Rivals, is committed to Tennessee. The future Vol finished with five receptions for 34 yards, production that Lewis would consider “child’s play.”

In three straight first half possessions Lewis scored touchdowns from 29, 81, and 21 yards. Yes, you read that correctly, Lewis scored an EIGHTY-ONE yard touchdown against one of the best high school football teams in Alabama.

In addition to the three scores, Lewis finished with nine catches for 188 yards. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to carry Pleasant Grove to the win, falling 29-28 as the Spartans’ defense failed to get a stop in the final six minutes of the game.

Lewis recently rose through the rankings, now on the verge of becoming a four-star. If he keeps playing like he did Friday night, there’s no doubt the Kentucky commit will be a four-star recruit when he signs on the dotted line in December.
