Son of Ravens star Lewis commits to Miami

Al Golden and The U. just landed a familiar name on the recruiting trail.

Lake Mary Prep's Ray Lewis III, the son of Baltimore Ravens great and Miami alum Ray Lewis, gave a verbal commitment to the Hurricanes on Tuesday, according to a Tweet from CBSSports.com's Bruce Feldman.

The 5-9, 190-pound Class of 2013 running back out of Lake Mary, FL, had generated interest from Wisconsin, as well, but he decided to carry on the legacy of his father in Coral Gables.

Last season as a junior rusher he recorded 2,312 rushing yards and 29 touchdowns while leading his team with 92 tackles and one sack as a linebacker. He also notched 278 receiving yards and 4 more scores as a pass-catcher.

Lewis III was recruited by Hurricanes running backs coach Terry Richardson and participated at a recent Miami junior day, where Golden and Co. were obviously impressed. While he lacks top-notch speed (4.7/40), he is shifty and has deceptive strength for his size. The fifth member of Miami's 2013 recruiting class, he was recruited as an athlete and could play running back or defensive back in Coral Gables.
