Several high major schools are recruiting 2006 point guard prospect Kelvin Lewis, but TCU certainly has the inside track with Lewis' father Kelvin Lewis, Sr., being an assistant coach for the Horned Frogs. As might be expected from a coach's son, Lewis, 6-foot-4, 175-pounds from North Crowley (Texas) High School has a great feel for the game.
"Kelvin is getting interest from Florida, Auburn, Arkansas, TCU and Nevada," said Lewis' AAU coach Craig Roberts of Team Fort Worth. "Kelvin is a complete player. His dad is an assistant at TCU, so he knows the game."
Not only does Lewis know the game, he also has the skills to make plays on both sides of the basketball.
"He's very athletic," said Roberts. "He handles the ball well and also can shoot it. He's a great defender. He can pressure the ball. He moves his feet well. Kelvin is going to be very good. He is a point guard that you can build your team around."
Lewis does need to get stronger for the next level, but that should come with time according to Coach Roberts.
"Kelvin needs to get stronger," said Roberts. "He works out a lot with players at TCU, so his strength will come.
"He's a great kid. He's almost to good to be true. He's a hard worker that always wants to get better."
Lewis is averaging 14 points per game so far this season.
