Robert Lewis, who was awarded Third Team All-Sun Belt honors earlier this week, has decided to enter the NCAA transfer portal.

In the upcoming 2024 season, Lewis will be playing for a different team, as he wishes to move on from his previous position as a wide receiver at Georgia State.

The news of Lewis’ transfer was reported by Pete Nakos, who works for On3.

“Georgia State wide receiver Robert Lewis plans to enter the transfer portal,” Nakos wrote on X Friday.

Lewis was a three-star recruit who arrived at Georgia State in 2021. In his second full season at the Atlanta-based institution, he broke out as the team’s third-leading receiver with 22 receptions for 379 yards and six touchdowns in eight games. He also averaged 17.2 yards per catch.

For his efforts this past season, Lewis received third-team All-Sun Belt honors after his impressive season, hauling in 70 receptions for 877 yards. He has 14 career touchdown receptions.

Lewis is a highly sought-after player with untapped potential that is sure to attract many suitors. Despite his experience, he still has room for growth, making him an enticing prospect for teams that want to level up from Group of 5 play. With the right fit, he could become a true impact player for a playoff or conference contender.

The transfer portal has been extremely active and is expected to become even busier in the future.
