TCU defensive tackle Jon Lewis has decided to leave the team. He was to be a senior in 2014. TCU officials would not confirm the report, first reported by Matt Jennings of Rivals.com. But several sources at the school confirmed that Lewis has left the team but will remain enrolled.
Lewis started the last five games in 2013 and finished with 39 tackles, including 11 for losses and 4.5 sacks.
He played in all 13 games in 2012, including starts in the first four. He finished with just six tackles. As a true freshman in 2011, he played in all 13 games and had 16 tackles, including a sack. Lewis attended Klein Oak, north of Houston.
Lewis’ move is similar to linebacker Joel Hasley, who decided to leave the team before his final season last August.
