PF Picks WCC; Skips Big Ten

The promising power forward from Long Beach Poly, 6-7 <b>Marcus Lewis</b>, had a visit to a Big Ten school arranged for later this month but verbally committed to a program from the West Coast Conference Sunday...

Marcus Lewis, 6-7 SR PF Long Beach (Calif.) Poly, verbally committed to the University of Portland Sunday.

Lewis visited Portland this last weekend and was so impressed he gave Pilot Head Coach Michael Holton his verbal commitment.

It was a bit surprising since Lewis had told us a week ago that he planned on visiting Portland and then Wisconsin September 26th.

Wisconsin had just recently started showing interest and had offered the official visit.

Lewis was also seriously considering St. Mary's, Cal State Fullerton and UC Riverside. Washington and Kansas State were also showing some interest.
