Our Review

Johnathan is not the traditional dual-threat quarterback. Standing at 6′ 4″ and 230 lbs, Lewis has the body of a bigger pocket passer. Also, his 40 time is nothing special. However, Johnathan is one of few quarterbacks that will lower their shoulder on a D1 linebacker. Lewis’ best attribute is easily his arm strength. Lewis gets more zip on the ball than any quarterback in the northeast. As pictured above, Johnathan gets so much extension with his throwing arm that he gets an extra 5-10 yards on a deep ball, compared to a traditional quick release dual-threat. Lewis has the perfect combination of athleticism and arm strength it is hard for any coach not to notice him at camps. Johnathan was invited to the Elite 11 in Los Angeles, California. He was not invited to the Opening Finals in Beaverton, Oregon where the Elite 11 quarterbacks are named (This year 12).  However, Johnathan certainly improved his game by attending the Los Angeles event. “Elite 11 helped me figure out what a leader is supposed to be on and off the field. They made it easier for me to come up with solutions that my team and I are facing,” said Lewis. Johnathan will most likely not get much playing time as a freshman. The main factor in his commitment decision was definitely proximity to home. Lewis held offers from Georgia, Wake Forest, Boston College, Temple and Iowa before deciding on the Scarlet Knights. In my opinion, Georgia would be a better fit due to the consistency of the program, fan base, education, all around college experience and offensive playbook. Johnathan trains with quarterback trainer and Syracuse alumnus, Madei Williams (Mad QB). Some of Madei’s most famous alumni are Brandon Wimbush (Notre Dame, former St. Peter’s Prep QB), Elijah Robinson (Boston College) and Devin Fuller (UCLA, Atlanta Falcons). Lewis reminds me of Mississippi State Quarterback, Dak Presscott with a better passing side. Big things ahead for Johnathan.
