Lewis, a 6-foot-3, 162-pound Hazel Green, Ala. native, is considered the No. 4 point guard in the country by 247Composite. He’s rated as the No. 2 player in the state of Alabama.
Home-state schools Alabama and Auburn are among the 12 institutions listed in Lewis’ top-12 along with Iowa State, Kansas, Baylor, Indiana, Providence, Houston, LSU, Georgia, Ole Miss and TCU.
Iowa State extended Lewis a scholarship offer in January then he hosted head coach Steve Prohm for a home visit in April. Lewis has a prior relationship with new Iowa State assistant coach James Kane dating back to his time as an assistant at Murray State and Dayton.
The Cyclones currently have two open scholarships for the 2019 class with Missouri wing Marcedus Leech already committed, but that number could change depending on Lindell Wigginton’s sophomore season and whether or not he returns to school for his junior year or declares for the NBA Draft.
