Scottie Lewis has figured out when he will take an official visit to the University of Kentucky.
The five-star wing and longtime Kentucky recruit discussed his recruitment with Evan Daniels and revealed he plans on officially visiting Kentucky September 29. Before Big Blue Madness, Lewis will see campus come to life for the highly-anticipated football game against South Carolina.
The 6-5 small forward is a consensus top ten player in the 2019 recruiting class. Last month he narrowed his list of schools to six — Kentucky, Villanova, Florida, Duke, St. John’s and Stanford — although he mentioned to Daniels that he’s also been in contact with Pitt’s Jeff Capel.
Of the six finalists, Lewis said he’s developed an especially strong bond with three coaches: Villanova’s Jay Wright, Florida’s Mike White and Kentucky’s John Calipari.
“Coach Calipari, a guy like him behind me and the stuff he has done with athletic guards, I think he can just bring out my offensive capabilities,” said Lewis. “That’s kind of the thing that people say I’m missing just the scoring aspect and that’s something he could bring out of me.”
