Lewis Finds His Fit

Trey Lewis visited Penn State, liked what he saw and wasted no time in reaching a decision.

It was in Morgantown, West Virginia, where Penn State ramped up its interest in Trey Lewis. As a junior at Cleveland (Ohio) Garfield Heights, Lewis averaged 22 points and five assists. However, it was while running the point for "Friends For Life" in July that he won over an admirer in Eddie DeChellis.

"Penn State was at most of my games," Lewis said. "They showed me a big time commitment and their interest level really stood out. There was a lot of others there but Penn State was at a lot of my games.

"I couldn't imagine playing for someone better than (DeChellis). He's so loyal to the program and big on the family aspect. I felt I couldn't do much better than that."

Lewis visited Penn State the day before making his decision. This week there was a mini-run on point guards and Lewis knew the Nittany Lions were going to have visitors so he didn't want to wait it out. Wisconsin, Iowa, Bucknell, George Mason, Cincinnati, Harvard and Cornell were interested.
