Kechaun Lewis (6'2") of national powerhouse Northland High in Columbus, Ohio is one of many Division I prospect for the Vikings. The 2012 combo guard has already picked up three offers.

The past season, the defending state champion and nationally ranked Northland was upset by Gahanna Lincoln in the regional tournament. Lewis says he is eager for a rematch.

Northland loses two players who have graduated and committed to Ohio State: All-American Jared Sullinger and J.D. Sullinger. However, Lewis believes the Vikings will be just fine this year. He spoke of his upcoming season with Northland: "We should be good with Trey Burke, Jordan Potts, Jalen Robinson at the 4, and Devon Scott at the 5. We also got a couple of players coming up."

Lewis said his first college scholarship offer came from the Miami RedHawks. Lewis and Miami Associate Head Coach Jermaine Henderson are cousins. Lewis said he is strongly considering Miami. He explained, "They show love. It is a warm hearted community. They show love to their players and recruits." Lewis attended Miami's Elite Camp in June.

Miami is also recruiting his teammate Devon Scott.

Lewis also recently received scholarship offers from Marshall and James Madison. Cincinnati, Dayton, Kent State, and Iowa are also showing interest.

Academically, Lewis said he is an honor role student and has a 3.0 GPA.

Lewis said of his style of play, "I am aggressive. I go to the rack. My weakness is shooting. Everything else I am good at. I am a cross between Chris Paul and a little bit of Brandon Jennings."
