Kelvin Lewis, the No. 86 ranked prospect in the Rivals150, was torn between playing in the ACC or SEC. On Sunday the 6-foot-4, 175-pound combo guard from North Crowley (Texas) High School cast his lot to play for Auburn in the SEC.
"Kelvin committed to Auburn sometime yesterday," said North Crowley coach Tommy Brakel. "He's very excited about it. He was torn between Auburn and Virginia but felt that he was in a no lose position."
A strong all around player, Lewis' main strength is getting the ball in the basket.
"I think he'll do very well in college," said Brakel. "He's a very good high school player and has the potential to be a great collegiate player. He's an electrifying scorer who can score anywhere on the court out to 23-feet."
Lewis, who averaged 17.3 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 4 steals per game as a junior, is the son of TCU assistant Kevin Lewis and possesses the intangibles excepted in a coach's son.
"Kelvin is an incredibly hard worker," said Brakel. "You never have to motivate him."
