|After deciding to return to Oklahoma instead of heading to the NFL draft, Lewis was injured in the preseason and couldn't match the stellar production from his first three seasons. He also suffered an injury at the NFL combine. Still, one team might take a chance on him in one of the middle rounds because he was one of the all-time leading tacklers for the Sooners. The San Antonio native finished third on the school's all-time list with 445 stops and had 144 of those as a freshman to break Brian Bosworth's school record. He topped 100 each of the next two seasons, but a broken bone in his left foot might have played a part in his drop in production as a senior. Lewis suffered his injury Aug. 9 and sat out until the second game of the season. He finished with 84 tackles in that campaign and collected his fourth all-conference honor, being named to the second team. He was a first-team honoree as a freshman and a sophomore and also was the Big 12 defensive newcomer and defensive freshman of the year. Lewis also set a school record for interceptions by a linebacker with nine and was a four-time academic all-Big 12 performer. He was invited to the NFL scouting combine but pulled out of the drills after reportedly tweaking his hamstring while running a lackluster 4.88 in the 40. He also didn't exactly shine in the bench press either with 22 reps, 14 fewer than teammate Ronnell Lewis, who was a junior. However, Travis Lewis' 122-inch broad jump was good for sixth-best, and he tied for ninth with a 36-inch vertical.
