North Crowley (Crowley, TX) star Kelvin Lewis , rated a 4-star prospect at the shooting guard position by Rivals.com, appears very close to making his college decision. The 6-4, 175-pound guard has made official visits to Auburn and, just this past weekend, to the University of Virginia.
“I spoke with him yesterday and with his Dad this morning,” North Crowley head coach Tommy Brakel said. “He really, really enjoyed his visit to Virginia. Going down there, I think he was leaning towards Auburn. Now, he seems really, really torn.”
Brakel isn’t sure exactly when a decision could occur, but it seems like it will be soon.
“He’ll really sit down and take a good look at what he likes,” Brakel said. “It’s an important decision in a young man’s life. He was very impressed with Virginia and, like I said, the experience caused him to take a step back and think about both schools.”
A very solid person on and off the court, Lewis averaged 17 points, 4 steals and 3 boards as a junior last season. While he certainly has a high skill level, it’s heart and determination that may separate him from the rest.
“The one thing I’ve always liked about him is his incredible work ethic,” Brakel said. “No matter if he had a good day or a bad day at school, he’ll show up at practice and give you 110-percent. I’ve seen the improvement in Kelvin’s game and it’s because of his work ethic day in and day out.”
Coach Brakel talked about his star’s improvement over the past year or so.
“He’s been steady ever since he got here,” Brakel said. “But, during his junior season, he made big strides in terms of his knowledge of the game and his conditioning. His recruitment jumped up to a whole new level over the summer. The coaches on his AAU team did an excellent job working with him this summer.”
Lewis has good bloodlines as well, as his father, Kevin Lewis , is an assistant coach for TCU. Coach Lewis has a good relationship with UVa assistant Rob Lanier.
In addition to being rated a 4-star recruit, Kelvin is rated as the #20 shooting guard...
