Utah football receives commitment from JUCO DB Tareke Lewis

The University of Utah's secondary in 2016 is certainly an experienced one with four seniors plus star junior Marcus Williams leading the way.

With Williams being talked about as a likely NFL prospect, all five could be gone in 2017. On Tuesday, the Utes got some help for the future, as they received a commitment from Riverside City College cornerback Tareke Lewis.

Originally from Palatka, Florida, the 6-foot, 180-pound Lewis will be a junior in 2017.

During his sophomore season for the Tigers, Lewis tallied two interceptions, seven pass breakups and 16 tackles in 10 games.

According to Scout.com, he holds scholarship offers from Maryland, West Virginia, Oregon State and Kansas State, among others.

Lewis is the seventh player to commit to Utah as part of its 2017 class, and the second this week after American Fork offensive lineman Michael Richardson did so Sunday.

Lewis did not return a message seeking comment on his decision.
