Ohio State has offered 2015 wide receiver Kahlil Lewis, a West Virginia commitment from Miramar High School, according to the 5-foot-11, 180 pounder.

"I was offered by Coach (Buckeyes' wide receivers' coach Zach) Smith," Lewis told Eleven Warriors. "My first time talking to him was today, but he is a real cool guy. They have been looking at me for some time he said."

Lewis committed to the Mountaineers in early January, becoming the latest in a string of players for Miramar to commit to West Virginia, following former Miramar coach Damon Cogdell, who joined Dana Holgerson's staff on January 8th. His high school teammate, Kendrell McFadden pledged for West Virginia on January 10th and another teammate, defensive back Tyrek Cole committed to Florida State a day earlier on January 9th. McFadden, the nation's seventh-ranked safety, was offered by the Buckeyes in mid-2013.

Despite familiarity on the West Virginia staff (and through Miramar alumnus, NY Jets quarterback Geno Smith,) Lewis says that his verbal commitment to the Mountaineers won't stop him looking at other schools that offer him.

"I'm open to any school, and I'll visit Ohio State, Alabama and a few others this summer" Lewis added. "I still have a whole year to make a final decision but I love West Virginia."
