LSU defensive back signee Cameron Lewis played through his final high school season with a shoulder injury, but he hopes to arrive in Baton Rouge, La., at 100 percent.
Lewis underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum this past week, he confirmed to SEC Country.
“I had messed it up during the season,” Lewis said. “I had a torn labrum, but I played with it torn during the season, but I’m good, though. I’ll be back at in May.”
According to Lewis’ timeline, recovery should take up to three months.
The four-star prospect played both quarterback and defensive back at Wossman High School (Monroe, La.), but projects as a safety at the next level. The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder is one of two safeties embedded in LSU’s incoming signing class, and was rated the 13th-best safety among all 2016 recruits.
