Wake Forest Player Countdown: No. 72 WR Cortez Lewis

Streeter Lecka

Coming in at number 72 on our player countdown is Cortez Lewis. Lewis is a 6'2 215  pound wide receiver out of Demopolis High School in Demopolis, Alabama. Lewis was a consensus 3-star prospect and chose Wake Forest over Boise State, Northern Illinois and Minnesota.

Lewis comes in at number 72 on our list because of the depth at receiver. Lewis is a physical receiver with strong ball skills, blocking ability and a college-ready body, but he will probably redshirt this season. I ranked him above Matt James and Airyn Willis because I like Lewis' upside in the event that he does see the field. Kameron Uter is very likely to see the field as a true freshman, and I believe Lewis is the next most likely freshman receiver to play.

Does Cortez deserve to be higher on the list?

Check back tomorrow as we reveal who is number 71 on our list.
