Lexington, VA (June 29, 2017) – The VMI basketball recruiting class has added another commitment for the 2017-18 season.
Incoming freshmen Myles Lewis, a 6-5, wing from Ashburn, Va., will join the Keydet basketball program – bringing the number of new arrivals on next year’s roster to six.
Lewis played this past season postgrad at Victory Rock Prep in Bradenton, Florida averaging a robust 17.1 PPG and 7.4 rebounds after playing scholastically at Middleburg Academy. Lewis averaged 15.6 points and 9.7 as a combo guard in his two seasons at Middleburg Academy which captured the 2015 VISSA State Championship. He also played for DC Blue Devils in the Under Armour Association.
“The addition of Myles Lewis to our 2017 recruiting class adds a versatile piece to our program,” said VMI head basketball coach Dan Earl. “Myles has great size and length on the wing at 6’5 which allows him to positively affect the game in many ways. He can drive the ball to the basket and can also make perimeter shots. He also has the ability to defend multiple positions. The combination of his character and competitiveness are some of the reasons we feel he will have a bright future here at VMI.”
Lewis plans on majoring in Computer Science.
