Lewis is considered to be the No. 1 quarterback as well as the No. 1 player in the Class of 2026 nationally according to 247Sports composite. He committed to play for USC in August.
Still in his sophomore season of high school, Lewis has ample time to continue improving his game and earn even more NIL deals, and he’s already off to a great start.
With Caleb Williams in his final season at USC, the Trojans are set at the quarterback position for the next few years. They have another 5-star, Malachi Nelson, on the team in his freshman season right now, and another great option coming soon in Lewis.
