Lewis is just a sophomore, a member of the 2011 class. Pauls was excited about Lewis' progress over the summer. Pauls spent a lot of his time coaching the 16 and under NJABC program in the spring and summer.
Pauls is excited about Lewis' physical skills at such a young age.
Lewis received a few honors over the summer -- The all-star teams at Adidas Phenom 150 Class of 2011 and the Eastern Invitational.
"Khalid was a big part of the Trenton Catholic basketball program as a freshman," said Pauls. "He averaged eight points game and was great as a defender."
Lewis isn't shy about heading to the boards and using his 6-foot-3 frame. Pauls said a small sampling of schools from the Atlantic Ten and Big East have shown early bird interest.
Fordham, MAAC and NEC schools are also indicating a desire to follow his sophomore year, according to Paul.
