If Ray Lewis had a son who was a halfway decent football prospect, you had better believe that kid was going to choose the University of Miami for college or face being disowned. That’s why it was no surprise to hear that Ray Lewis III, the son of the Ravens All-Pro linebacker, had committed to Miami.
Lewis is a running back and safety from Lake Mary Prep in Florida. He rushed for 2,312 yards and 29 touchdowns as a junior last season. We highlighted the 384-yard, five touchdown game he had last September, so hearing that he’s Canes material is not surprising.
“Coming in as a legacy is very exciting,” Lewis told CaneSport.com, according to the Palm Beach Post. “My dad is an icon at Miami. People look up to him. It’s going to be an honor to be there. I will be there to finish off what he started.”
If what Lewis tweeted Tuesday was any indication, he’s pretty stoked about the announcement.
Just committed to Miami Baby!!!!!

Lewis is the third running back to commit to Miami so he’ll have plenty of competition when he arrives on campus. We doubt it’s anything he won’t be able to handle.
