Ray Lewis' Son, Rayshad, Is Transferring To Maryland


Another Lewis will be playing football not far from M&T Bank Stadium.

Rayshad Lewis, the son of legendary former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, has announced that he will transfer to the University of Maryland.

Rayshad made the announcement in Maryland gear on Twitter:

Lewis played his high school ball at Bishop Moore Catholic High School in Orlando, Fla., and helped lead his team to the 2015 Class 5A state championship.

He went out west to play college football, and had a strong freshman season with 40 catches for 476 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran 10 times for 110 yards, including a 59-yard touchdown.

But Lewis told the Orlando Sentinel that he just didn't feel like he fit in in Logan, Utah. At Maryland, it felt different. Lewis said his parents were "saying two different things" about whether he should transfer, but that he followed his heart.

"I just felt at home and very comfortable with the coaching staff, the offense and how I would fit in ... and their direction and plan for the program," Lewis said Monday.

Lewis will have to sit out the 2017 season, but will have three years of eligibility beginning in 2018.
