Khalid Lewis, a 6-foot-3, 170-pound combo guard from Trenton Catholic Academy in Hamilton, New Jersey (previously McCorristin Catholic H.S.) has seen his recruiting list change over the past couple of months.

Clearly, more division one programs are hearing about the 2011 prospect from the Garden State.

"Playing well at the Eddie Griffith challenge a month ago helped him get some more interest," said his AAU coach, Matt Pauls of NJABC.

Playaz Club program director Jimmy Salmon has done a terrific job in setting up this event for the past few years, allowing the best from Philadelphia challenge the stars from New Jersey.

Lewis' ability to impress people was not lost on many of the scouts in attendance, according to Pauls. "Now they know about him and the colleges are also getting to know about him," he said.

Currently, a sophomore, Lewis is expected to have a big year, as he heads into a big spring and summer of AAU ball next year.

St. Joe's, Monmouth, Fordham, Drexel, Iona, and Robert Morris have expressed early interest in his skill level.
