Huskies make it official, add Lewis

The Washington Huskies made it official this morning that they have added running back Kyle Lewis of Downey, Calif., to their Class of 2011.

Here’s the release from the school.

As the release states: “Lewis helped lead the (Downey) Vikings to a berth in the CIF Southern Section Western Division playoffs. A safety and running back, he rushed for over 1,200 yards and earned first-team All-CIF Southern Section. His top game in 2010 came against Gahr, when he rushed for 240 yards and four touchdowns. Lewis also ran for 194 yards and two scores on just 13 carries against Lynwood.”

As detailed here last week, Lewis is being brought in to add depth to a spot that suddenly needs it with the recent losses of Deontae Cooper for the season after suffering a second ACL injury, and Zach Fogerson for his career due to concussion issues.

Lewis, who didn’t sign in February due to academic issues, had been committed to UCLA but changed his mind and will instead become a Husky. He will be immediately eligible and will be with the team when it begins fall camp Aug. 8. He is expected to join the rest of the freshmen for the LEAP proram this week.
