Lewinson makes official visit

Just when we thought Ron Everhart had finalized his 2008 recruiting class it turns out he is still on the road looking for talent.

Lewinson, a 6'9 240lb graduating high school senior, was thought to be going to junior college but after strong performances during AAU play this July his stock has been on the rise. In addition to his offer from Duquesne Lewinson has also received offers from Montana State and Albany.

ArizonePreps.com Scouting Report
Arizona Preps Scouting Report: Lewinson is a rare find among today's athletes, a low post player that likes to bang inside and play on the low block. He is a strong low post scorer either with his back to the basket, or while facing the basket out to 15-18 feet. He is also an aggressive rebounder, especially on the offensive end of the floor, where he likes to keep the ball up high for offensive putbacks.
