More High D-1s Involved With Khalid Lewis

Khalid Lewis, a 6-foot-3, 170-pound combo guard from Trenton Catholic Academy in Hamilton, New Jersey (previously McCorristin Catholic H.S.), continues to feature an impressive list of division one programs in his recruiting process.

Khalid, who competes for Fred Falchi at Trenton Catholic, played for the Team NJABC AAU program last weekend at the Rumble in the Bronx.

"Khalid Lewis' recruitment has gone through the roof," said Team NJABC head coach Matt Pauls. "At Rumble in the Bronx, he had 38 points in a tough last second loss to the Metrohawks."

This isn't surprising since Lewis is a hard worker and has shown the ability to score from many places on the floor.

"He is hearing from Rutgers, Villanova, Utah, Fairfield, Siena, Iona, Seton Hall, St. Johns," said Pauls.

He already has offers from Robert Morris and Iona.

"He is now dunking on people, nailing the three ball, and beating guys off the dribble whenever he wants," said Pauls.

We previously reported that Fairfield, Rider, Siena, Boston University, and St. Francis of New York were also involved in his recruiting process.

Lewis is also a terrific student and does have the interest of the Ivy and Patriot League programs.

He's just a 2011 prospect, a rising junior too. So there's ample time for Khalid to continue to make improvements in his individual game.

WHAT HIS AAU HEAD COACH MATT PAULS OF TEAM NJABC THINKS OF KHALID LEWIS:

"Khalid is learning to play the ball quicker, rather than catching and holding. His jumpshot continues to improve, and he is shooting much more consistently.

"He is the best rebounding and defensive guard in his class in New Jersey because of his length and athleticism. He needs to continue to get stronger so he finishes better.

"I expect him to land more scholarship offers by the time the summer AAU season is over. He's improving each week because he's a hard worker and he's understanding the game more."
