Khalid Lewis-El, a 6-foot-3, 170-pound combo guard from Trenton Catholic Academy in Hamilton, New Jersey (previously McCorristin Catholic H.S.), has the ability to produce points from many points on the floor. Due to his high skill level, several division one programs are interested and his AAU coach Matt Pauls is excited.

St. John's, Rutgers, Providence, Villanova, Richmond, Virginia Tech, Michigan State, Drexel, St. Joe's, Temple, Fairfield, Rider, Siena, and Marist are some of the schools interested.

MATT PAULS' THOUGHTS ON KHALID'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: His perimeter game continues to improve. He has a great first step and can destroy the interior of a defense with his drives to the rim.

Khalid is working on his ballhandling and to continue his perimeter consistency.


Lewis possesses a high skill level and the touch to score on pretty drives inside the paint and near the rim. He has the confidence to challenge the bigger bodies with his offensive game.

Khalid, who also competes for boys basketball head coach Fred Falchi at Trenton Catholic, split his time between the 16 and under and 17 and under Team NJABC AAU basketball program.
