He’s been tipped as a future Premier League star for Southampton and, possibly, even England’s No 1 somewhere down the line.
Wherever goalkeeper Harry Lewis’ career takes him, he believes the year he’s just spent on loan at Dundee United will have helped him along the way.
It’s not been all plain sailing for the 20-year-old, who has topped the Tangerines’ Tele match ratings this term.
But if, at times, that’s made for as much pain as joy, he is convinced, in terms of a learning experience, his time at Tannadice will prove invaluable.
For that reason alone, he admits he’ll always be grateful to United for taking him on for the season.
“I’ve done a lot of learning. I’ve dealt with the good sides and bad sides of football which is what the loan move is all about,” he said.
“And I’ll definitely say I’ve taken the full opportunity in this loan move to learn as much as I can.
“I’ve taken a lot of things on board, on and off the pitch, and it will turn out to be a positive experience for me in the years ahead.
“I’ve said it from day one, I’m delighted I came here and that’s never changed.
“I’ll always be grateful to Dundee United for giving me this opportunity.”
Ultimately, things did not work out as planned as United missed out on promotion back to the Premiership as they lost in the play-offs for a second year running.
Failing to live up to their pre-season billing as favourites for automatic promotion was another big disappointment.
And as someone who is honest, at times quite brutally so, when analysing his own performances, he concedes he would have like to have done better.
“That I’ve come out on top in your match ratings really surprises me, I have to say,” he added.
“If I was reviewing my season, I would probably say the first half of the season was good, I was probably one of the top performers in the team. In the second half of the season I’d say I was fairly disappointed with my performances.
“It’s nice to hear that it’s been remembered when I was playing well.”
That form slump in the second half of the campaign eventually led to him being dropped to the bench.
And only the freak injury suffered by replacement Deniz Mehmet as he damaged a knee ligament while celebrating the equaliser in the play-off quarter-final win over Dunfermline saw him restored to the starting line-up.
Painful as being left out was, the England youth international had no complaints about manager Csaba Laszlo’s decision.
“You are always looking to kick on and improve, so it hurts sitting on the bench and it even hurts seeing the team doing well without you.
“Don’t get me wrong, you are delighted for the lads when they win but you want to be a part of it.
“I should add that, from when he came in, for me Deniz was brilliant and totally deserved his place in the team.
“When someone in your position is playing the way he was you just have to remain patient and make sure you are doing the right things on and off the pitch.
“It was frustrating at times but it was part of that learning experience I spoke about.
“And during this year I’ve definitely learned a lot.”
