Commitment Story: Louisville Lands Their QB For 2021 With Addition Of GA Dual-Threat QB TJ Lewis
Hive’s Breakdown: Very elusive runner with breakaway speed. Potential is there in the passing game. Seems to have enough arm strength and good enough mechanics to succeed at the next level given his ability to run with the football. His team running the triple-option just really makes it hard to truly evaluate him as a QB. Could potentially see him moved to another position, but for now he’ll get his chance at QB and he brings a big athlete to Ponce’s room.
Louisville Comparison: It would be all too easy to compare TJ to LJ given his ability to take it all the way to the house with his legs, but it’s near impossible to compare any incoming freshman to a former Heisman winner, let alone a player as truly great as Lamar Jackson. That just wouldn’t be fair. So my player comparison for now is Dominique Brown. Most probably remember him as a talented RB. However, when he first arrived on campus he came here as a QB with great size and athleticism, but an unproven arm. I think TJ’s ceiling as a passer far exceeds whatever Brown’s was, but for now I think we could see TJ play the same role Dominique played his freshman year which was wildcat QB. Obviously, TJ could step on campus and blow everyone away with his improvement as far as his arm and make this comparison age poorly (which I would actually bet on). But, for now, I have to go Dominique Brown.

Higgy’s Breakdown: Cooley is a runner with great vision and patience. His ability to see a running lane or hole is next level. When he finds a hole, he has the burst to blast through it. Cooley is very adept at reading the flow of a defense and cutting back when necessary. His ability to cut is devastating to any potential defender attempting to tackle him. He puts his foot in the ground, and can change direction on a dime. Cooley’s speed is amazing and will make him a very scary ACC back because he’s a threat to take it to the house at any time.
Louisville Comparison: Trevion has the power of Michael Bush with his running abilities. He has hands to catch out of the backfield like Bilal Powell. Trevion will flourish in Satterfield’s offense and I can definitely seeing him playing on Sundays.
