“This decision came down to the wire for me, but I just got that feeling that everybody talks about,” Lew said on the broadcast. “My relationship and connection with that staff has truly been special this whole process, and I just felt that that’s where I needed to be.”

Lew, who is listed at 6-3 and 280 pounds, is rated the No. 36 interior offensive lineman and the No. 510 player in the 2023 class by 247Sports’ composite ranking. He will play in the All-American Bowl after his senior season.

“I’m going far from home, and that was something I had to take into account,” “But just trusting that staff and giving my all. I know they’re going to take care of me down there.”

Lew is the fifth offensive lineman to join the Hurricanes’ 2023 class, joining five-star prospect Francis Mauigoa and three-star prospects Antonio Tripp Jr., Tommy Kinsler and Frankie Tinilau.
