"I have a lot to prove," Sewell told Scout.com. "Not necessarily get my name out there, but I need to actually win at Trinity."
"A lot of coaches are expecting me to have a tremendous junior year," he continued. "My statistics last year really didn't show that I was a big time player. So to a lot of these coaches this is a big year for me. They want to see me rebound more, shoot the ball more and see how I can lead a team."
Sewell will certainly have to provide the leadership for the Shamrocks, but he'll have some help from incoming freshman Chris Harrison, who is quick and elusive lead guard that has already picked up a few scholarship offers.
Trinity will begin their season on Wednesday against district foe Louisville (Ky.) Seneca. It's the start of a year that could determine what level Sewell plays his college ball at.
"I have a lot [of offers]," Sewell said. "It's quite a few. Hopefully by the end of this year more of the big time schools and top 25 schools will start looking at me more."
His offer count is up to nine – Akron, Middle Tennessee, Ohio, Miami (Ohio), Wright State, Western Kentucky, Bradley, Marshall and VCU. The 6-foot-5 guard also has interest from Butler and Miami (Fla.)
With the offers rolling in this summer and fall, Sewell opted to take a few unofficial visits. He traveled to Butler, Miami (Ohio), Dayton and Marshall, while also playing pick up ball at Louisville and attending Kentucky's elite camp.
"I'm waiting to see how my high school season goes," he said about making a commitment. "I'm probably going to commit around February or March or towards the end of my season. It all depends on how my junior year goes. This is a big year for me."
Although a decision isn't in the near future, Sewell said Marshall, Butler, Western Kentucky and Akron are the schools showing him the most interest at this point.
