One of the wings in the 2017 class in the Midwest with the potential to breakout during April is Terrence Lewis The native of Milwaukee has the requisite athleticism and size to be a high level player, and at the NY2LA Swish N Dish he also looked to be more skilled than a year ago.
“I’ve been working hard and I think I am getting better and better,” said Lewis of his improvement. “I am shooting more and handling the ball more, and also working to lead the team.”
On the recruiting trail numerous schools have made it known that they are very interested in Lewis, and he recently made a Big Ten visit.
“I just visited Illinois and that visit went well,” said Lewis. “I have a lot of schools looking at me like Xavier, Miami, Iowa State, Marquette, Texas Tech, and a lot more.”
According to Lewis the trip to Illinois was about more than just seeing the facilities, he really got to know the coaching staff as well.
“The coach was very nice and at the end he gave me some information about the school and my game which I liked,” said Lewis of the Illini. “He seems like a father figure type of coach, and he told me what Illinois is all about.”
Another visit that he has taken and enjoyed was to Iowa State. The Cyclones have worked hard in Milwaukee in years past, and Lewis is becoming one of their targets in what should be a big 2017 class for them.
“I had a real good visit there,” said Lewis of Iowa State. “They talked about grades first and that is what I am all about, and the coaches seemed like great people so I liked it a lot there.”
One other school that has seemingly picked up the pace with Lewis is Xavier. The Musketeers are looking for wings in 2017 and Lewis is one they like.
“They like my intensity and aggressiveness,” noted Lewis. “The coaches did tell me they want to see me handle the ball more and be more vocal on the court so I know what I have to improve on.”
Lewis and his Playground Elite team will participate on the NY2LA Circuit this spring, and expect a lot of schools to come through and evaluate the high upside wing.
