Lewis, who visited IU over the weekend for the Michigan game, is the 15th commit for Indiana in their 2020 class. Lewis is a strong replacement for Florida defensive tackle JeJuan Sparks, who recently decommitted from IU.
The three-star recruit is ranked the No. 59 defensive tackle in the nation and the No. 66 prospect in the state of Georgia according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
Lewis chose the Hoosiers over a high profile list of offering schools that included Penn State, Auburn, Florida State, Louisiana State, Louisville, Miami (FL), Oklahoma, Tennessee, and West Virginia.
Lewis originally committed to Auburn but changed his mind in May.
