Beamer visits with TE Lewis

Frank Beamer made the trip up north to New York on Wednesday to visit with tight end commitment Jerome Lewis. The 6-foot-4, 236-pounder was clearly impressed by the trip.

"It was good," he said. "I mean it was cool to see how much interest Virginia Tech had in me to come up here.

"It was really cool to see Coach Beamer in my school. It was like it's always been with Coach Wiles. They are always going the extra mile and that's why I think they've got all the best recruits."

Lewis confirmed his mother was impressed as well by the visit from the Hokies head coach.

"At first, my mom said they just made her comfort level with Tech even better," he stated. "She then said I could leave now for all she cares because she knows I'm going to be in good hands.

"Coach Beamer sat down with my mom and I and it was really cool. Everyone was on the same page about everything."

Lewis finished his senior year with 18 receptions for 425-yards. He added 12 sacks on defense.
