Amidst the buzz of Hoops Mania on Saturday night, the top small forward prospect in the class of 2019—according to ESPN and 247 Sports—named his final 12 schools.
Scottie Lewis (Ranney School, N.J./Team Rio National) announced his list via Twitter.
Lewis included Villanova in his dozen schools. He unofficially visited Villanova last week and according to MADE Hoops’ Pat Lawless, Lewis was slated to attend Hoops Mania with a few of his Team Rio teammates, including Bryan Antoine—another five-star prospect that could potentially partner up with Lewis to play together at the collegiate level.
Aside from Villanova, Lewis included fellow Big East schools St. John’s and Seton Hall in his final list. The 6-foot-5 forward also named Duke, Maryland, Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina, Stanford, Florida, Harvard, and Colgate.
Last season, at the Ranney School, he helped them to a 22-6 finish, making it as far as the quarterfinals of the NJSIAA Non-Public B State Tournament.
In AAU basketball, this past offseason, he averaged 10.1 points per game and 4.3 rebounds per game as a member of Team Rio in the Under Armour Association.
