Former LSU quarterback Caleb Lewis and Bowling Green running back Terence Stephens have made the move to transfer to Robert Morris and become a part of new football head coach Bernard Clark’s new-look Colonials squad.

Lewis has two more years of eligibility by the time he comes to Robert Morris. He failed to appear in a single game during his time at LSU. Additionally, Lewis did receive offers from Ohio, Florida International and Buffalo before he chose to walk on at Louisiana State.

Lewis shows potential. Lewis has a strong arm with good accuracy. He could be the missing piece to this offense.

Lewis is expected to compete for the starting quarterback position with last year’s starter and former San Diego State transfer Jimmy Walker.

Jimmy Walker currently appears to be the favorite to be named the starter next season. Last year hopefully wasn’t Walker’s best. Walker had a 49.6 percent completion percentage with nine touchdowns and eight interceptions.

Lewis will not be the only new face in the Colonial backfield. He is to be joined by West Allegheny graduate and former Bowling Green Falcon Terence Stephens. Stephens played in 20 games during his time at Bowling Green. He rushed for 121 yards on 26 carries.

Stephens ran for 1413 yards on 147 carries during his senior season at West Allegheny in 2015.

Stephens will join Harrison Dreher, TJ Neal and Cole Blake in the backfield for the Colonials. The three backs combined for a total of 708 rushing yards, the fifth-lowest total in the Football Championship Subdivision.

Colonials fans will get a better look at what kind of role Lewis and Stephens will play once spring practice begins in March.
