The LSU Tigers may have found their replacement for losing Jake Johnson to Texas A&M. Louisiana product from Westgate Danny Lewis Jr was committed to playing for the Cincinnati Bearcats. His recruiter was then offensive coordinator Mike Denbrock.
With Denbrock now at LSU it should come as no surprise to see Lewis trending for the Tigers. Just minutes following his tweet to announce that he would re-open his recruitment, Lewis announced an offer from LSU.
Lewis is rated as three-star tight end but has good size for the position. Standing at 6’4″ and 235 pounds, he has the frame to play tight end at a high level. Not to mention the sheer number of NFL-caliber tight ends that have played for Denbrock and Kelly, it seems like a no-brainer decision.

Adding Lewis would be big for the LSU Tigers offense. While he isn’t as highly touted as Johnson was, he still brings size to a position that they could use help with. While Jack Bech is technically a tight end, he is more of a receiver. Adding both Lewis and 2022 signee Mason Taylor might allow Denbrock to move Bech around to create mismatches.
