Jaelen Lewis, an offensive tackle out of Antelope, Calif., has de-committed from Washington State and flipped to San Jose State, according to a Joe Davidson of the Sacramento Bee.
The three-star offensive tackle had been committed to Washington State since November and took an official visit to the Palouse on January 15. At the time, Lewis chose the Cougars over offers from Fresno State, UNLV, Utah State, San Jose State and San Diego State.
However, as we mentioned in our latest big board, Lewis was a commit to watch leading up to signing day given his recent recruiting activity, which included official visits to Fresno State and San Jose State over the last couple weeks.
The 6-foot-6, 265-pounder committed to the Spartans with Antelope High teammate and former Temple quarterback commit Montel Aaron.
Christian Haangana, Liam Ryan, Keenen King, Nilsson Gaisoa and Josh Watson make up the remaining offensive linemen in this class, and each are expected to sign tomorrow afternoon. Pago Pago, A.S., offensive guard Frederick Mauigoa, the top prospect in Samoa, is expected to make a college decision between WSU and Oregon State tomorrow.
Lewis' de-commitment means the Cougars now have 26 verbal or signed prospects in the 2016 recruiting class, though WR Stevie Houston and WR Josiah Westbrook are not expected to sign, bringing that number down to 24.
