Winning on the field results in victories off of it in recruiting. Melissa High School wide receiver Kennedy Lewis provided another example on Tuesday when the former TCU commit pledged to the Longhorns over the Horned Frogs and Florida. The 6-foot-3 wide out pledged to the Horned Frogs in June, just eight days after picking up an offer from Texas.

Lewis visited Texas in October and de-committed days later.
Lewis is Texas’ third commitment at wide receiver in the 2019 class, joining four-star prospects Jake Smith and Jordan Whittington. Lewis is the tallest of the bunch and gives Texas a real outside receiver commitment with the other two likely to play slot receiver. Lewis caught 48 passes for 1,099 yards and 11 touchdowns as a junior. He recorded five touchdowns on just 11 catches as a sophomore.
