USC QB Commit Julian Lewis Reclassifies to Class of 2025

Julian Lewis, the nation’s top high school football player in the class of 2026, is reclassifying to the 2025 class and will enter college after his final season at Carrollton High School in Georgia this fall, according to ESPN’s Pete Thamel.

With Lewis electing to reclassify, he could become the top high school player in the ’25 class. The 16-year-old received offers from AlabamaGeorgiaMichiganOhio StateTexas and Oregon but ultimately committed to USC in August.

“After much prayer and talking with my family, coaches and trainers I will be reclassifying to the class of 2025,” Lewis told ESPN. “I have been blessed to have two good seasons under Coach Joey King and I have confidence that after this coming season I will be ready to compete at the next level.”

Burnsed: Julian Lewis Is Betting He’s the Next Big Thing

Lewis attends the same high school that former Clemson star and current Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence attended in Georgia. King also coached Lawrence in high school.

In two seasons at Carrollton, Lewis has thrown for 7,212 yards and 96 touchdowns while completing 66% of his passes. In the ’23 campaign alone, he threw for 48 touchdowns and two interceptions.

Currently, USC doesn’t have a quarterback commit in its ’25 class. However, with Lewis earning high school comparisons to Lawrence and another Georgia native and Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields, he could be the next biggest star for the Trojans and head coach Lincoln Riley.
