Belleville (Mich.) 2021 offensive tackle Raimer Lewis was in Ann Arbor for Michigan’s game against Nebraska on Sept. 22.
He enjoyed it so much that he’s returning for the game against Maryland on Oct. 6.
Upon arrival to see Michigan’s 56-10 blowout victory, Lewis talked with coach Jim Harbaugh, offensive line coach Ed Warinner and Director of Recruiting Matt Dudek.
The trio asked Lewis how Belleville High School was doing, and in which way he was contributing as a sophomore.
Lewis, a teammate of Michigan 2020 four-star cornerback commit Andre Seldon Jr., also had an opportunity to chat with defensive end Rashan Gary and 2020 four-star defensive tackle Denver Warren, a Wolverines commit.
“Rashan told me how happy he was when he got to Michigan,” Lewis said. “I asked him, ‘Is college easy?’ He said all you have to do is stay focused and it will kind of be like high school.”
At 6-foot-7, Lewis could turn into a valuable piece for multiple programs by the end of his recruitment. The good news for Michigan is that Lewis has already declared Harbaugh’s team as his dream school.
“I really love Michigan,” Lewis added. “It’s my dream school. I love the way they play, especially the offensive line. I would love to be on a team like that.”
He is also interested in Florida State, USC, Penn State, Ole Miss and Michigan State. He will visit most schools in the spring.
Making his return to Michigan on Oct. 6, Lewis is excited to talk with the coaches more. He also wants to see the offensive line again and talk to a few other recruits.
As for an offer from the Wolverines, Lewis thinks it will come with time.
“As I get better and work on the things I need to work on, I think I’ll get an offer from Michigan,” he said. “I’m already at a good school, but all I need to do is keep my grades up and work on athletics.”
