Auburn’s 2020 recruiting class is now down to just six players as Griffin, Ga., native Damarjhe Lewis has backed off his commitment to the Tigers. However, based on the statement he released announcing his decision to decommit, the lack of commitment may be mutual.
The 6-foot-3, 278-pound Lewis is rated as a three-star prospect, the No. 47 defensive tackle and Georgia’s No. 49 overall prospect according to 247Sports Composite Rankings. Lewis originally committed to Auburn in August but has landed scholarship offers from Tennessee, Miami and Georgia Tech since that time. Lewis’ decision to decommit marks the fourth decommitment the Tigers have suffered in the 2020 recruiting cycle.
The Tigers’ six-man class currently ranks as the SEC’s No. 10 recruiting class.
Lewis announced his decision by posting the following message on Twitter:
“First off I want to thank Auburn University for offering me a chance to play at the next level. I would like to thank Auburn whole coaching staff and players for giving me an opportunity of a lifetime. I really want to play with my boyz Zion P., Tonio B., and Brodarious H, but I haven’t been feeling the love lately. After talking to God, my family and close friends, I have decided to decommit from Auburn University and explore my options. I won’t be answering media questions but I will be talking to Auburn staff about it if you have questions.”
