Dwight Lewis is finally starting to feel comfortable in his new surroundings after leaving Louisiana for Texas. The 6-foot-5, 190-pound shooting guard/small forward has found a new school to call home and, more importantly, is looking forward to making a decision about his future when the November 9 early signing period rolls around.
When Rivals.com last spoke to Dwight Lewis, Sr., he was preparing to remove his son, Dwight Lewis from James Taylor High School in Katy, Texas. At the time, it appeared that several people from within the school district did not like the idea of Lewis, the No. 132 ranked player in the class of 2006, playing for James Taylor.
Now that several weeks have passed, Lewis is back at James Taylor High School.
"Dwight is back at James Taylor High School," said Mr. Lewis. "He is really enjoying himself and everything is going just fine. There were a few problems when he first started attending James Taylor, but everything is fine right now. We don't anticipate having any additional problems."
Now that Lewis has found a new school to attend, the No. 35 ranked shooting guard in the class is looking forward to the recruiting process. There is no doubt that he plans to make a decision about his future before the No. 9 early signing period.
"Dwight took an official visit to USC during the weekend of September 15," said Lewis. "He really had a good time during his trip. Dwight spent time with the coaching staff, the players, took a tour of the campus and the entire surroundings.
"USC is a school that Dwight is seriously considering," he added. "I know that he plans to sign a Letter-of-Intent on November 9. Dwight has talked about taking an official visit to Miami-FL. I also know that he would like to visit some other schools, but nothing has been scheduled yet."
