Bill Lewis was an All-American center at Nebraska, and now Alex Lewis has decided to leave Colorado and follow in his father's footsteps and play for Bo Pelini and the Cornhuskers.
"It's been a dream of mine to play where my father played," Alex Lewis told the Omaha World-Herald. "I finally get to do that."
As a true sophomore, Lewis started 12 games last season for the Buffaloes, earning a Pac-12 honorable mention honor. The 6-foot-6, 285-pounder can play tackle or guard.
After sitting out next year, he will have two years of eligibility left. He had considered transferring to Florida State, Michigan, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
Lewis should be able to vie for playing time immediately after this season. The Cornhuskers are scheduled to lose three scholarship tackles -- Jeremiah Sirles, Brent Qvale and Andrew Rodriguez -- after 2013.
