The Virginia Tech Hokies ended Spring Practice with their Spring Game in front of a large crowd at Lane Stadium and the coaches will now probably focus more on recruiting for the next few weeks along with figuring out the depth chart. The Hokies entered today with only two commitments from three-star cornerbacks Mook Reynolds and DuWayne Johnson. The Hokies haven’t added any commits for weeks before today as Virginia Tech added an in-state recruit.

Chris Horne of TechSideline.com has reported that 3-star defensive lineman Harry Lewis of Phoebus High School in Hampton, Virginia has committed to Virginia Tech. Lewis is now the Hokies’ third commit for the Class of 2015 and the first defensive lineman to commit to the Hokies since the decommitment of Michael Barnett. Harry Lewis is a solid addition to a Class of 2015 that the Hokies have been needing after not having a new commit on months. Harry Lewis also can somewhat help the Hokies recruit in the Norfolk area, especially with 5-star defensive end Josh Sweat of Oscar Smith High School.

One of the things that Harry Lewis brings to the table is how Lewis can play at either defensive end of defensive tackle. With the Hokies after a lot of defensive ends and not as many defensive tackles, Hokie fans should expect Harry Lewis to be a defensive tackle. Lewis was at one time a four-star recruit but just because a guy isn’t a four or five star doesn’t mean he won’t have a great career as proven by the Hokies’ high-level of success. Harry Lewis is a solid addition to a Hokies’ Class of 2015 that has the potential to be very good.
