Lewter changing positions?
What was Jamar Lewter doing at a 7-on-7 camp?
Ballou's 6-foot-7, 265-pound junior tackle, who is primed to be the Knights' biggest recruit - both literally and figuratively - since All-Met defensive tackle Marvin Austin, who graduated in 2007, seemed to have no business playing 7-on-7, which features a quarterback and six receivers playing two-hand touch.
Yet there was Lewter at Dunbar on Wednesday, suiting up for Ballou's team in the 7-on-7 University camp. Moreover, he was wearing uniform number 9 - a change from the 71 he wore last season - and indicating he was moving to tight end this fall. He looked good catching passes over the middle from quarterback Delonte Edwards.
"The team needed some help," Lewter said, giving up the gag. "This is fun. It's a new position for me, but I'm not leaving tackle."
Lewter, though, will leave town plenty this summer. He said he plans to attend camps at Clemson, North Carolina (perhaps he knows this guy?), Rutgers, UCLA and USC, all of which have offered him scholarships, in addition to others, including Auburn, Illinois, Maryland, Miami, and Pittsburgh.
Lewter said he won't take any official visits until the fall, once the season starts, but also because he hasn't come close to narrowing his choices yet.
Sitting next to Lewter on the Ballou bench, out of uniform, was 6-3, 300-pound senior tackle Mike Pearson, a second-team All-Met, who said he is going to Arizona Western Junior College, adding that it came on the suggestion of New Mexico Coach Mike Locksley.
