New, 8 comments

In an effort to keep even the most hardcore Miami fan up to date on their favorite players, SOTU will be running a Player Profile series. In these posts, our writers will profile two players from each position that they think should get more face time. They will recap their previous year, or in some cases, preview what may be to come. That way, when the season get's here, you hopefully will have a new found love for the team on the field.

Malcolm Lewis

RS Sophomore - WR - 6'0 193 - Miramar, Fl

Career got off to a promising start, before a devastating injury (ankle dislocation) short circuited his freshman campaign.

Finished last season with just 7 catches for 71 yards.

Was a four star recruit coming out of H.S. who drew comparison to former Michigan and Arizona Cardinals star Steve Breaston. for his his hands, shiftiness, and ability to get open in.

Looks to compete with Herb Waters and freshman Braxton Berrios (once healthy) for reps in the slot.

A little more about what #9 has been through so far in his time in Coral Gables:

Summary: Lewis is already an inspiration to his teammates for all he has dealt with. But can return to the form that once made him such a highly touted recruit?  By all reports, he had a very nice spring and is as healthy as he has been since before the injury.  He seems to have a nice rapport with Kevin Olsen, so if Olsen ends up as the starter (not looking likely) it could help Lewis' chances at more targets. But regardless of who starts under center, it is good to see the explosive WR back at full strength. 15-20 catches and a few TDs might seem like modest projections, but if Lewis can get some production under his belt this year, he might still yet eventually fulfill his lofty potential down the line.
