One of the Tennessee Vols’ 2020 recruiting targets, three-star defensive lineman Damarjhe Lewis, announced his decommitment from the Auburn Tigers on Tuesday.
Lewis tweeted that he was decommitting because he hasn’t “been feeling the love lately”.

Lewis, 6-foot-3/278 lbs from Griffin, GA, is rated by 247Sports as the No. 49 player in the state of Georgia and the No. 47 defensive tackle in the nation.
The Georgia native originally committed to Auburn last August. Lewis was offered by Tennessee in January and he attended a junior day at UT in February.
Lewis told 247Sports that he still likes Auburn and wouldn’t rule out recommitting to the Tigers at some point. He again expressed that he hasn’t been hearing from the coaches much lately.
It certainly sounds like it’s possible that Auburn isn’t sold on Lewis. If that’s the case, then perhaps he’s lessening the sting by decommitting early in the process to keep his options open with other schools.
Either way, it’s likely that Lewis will be a player who won’t make his final decision until it’s time to sign his National Letter of Intent.
