Recruiting - Hoops

Mention of Lewis Clinch from July - link here.

Kansas recently offered Lewis Clinch after seeing his performance at the Showcase in Orlando, FL, but it maybe too late for Bill Self.
6-2 Lewis Clinch, Cordele, GA

Senior Lewis Clinch, unknown stock for sometime is now getting exposure. Youth Prep Stars Recruiting Magazine knew it would be a matter of time for his exposure. This spring and summer, Mr. Clinch has let his presence known at the TOC, Hoopfest and Showtime. Clinch has been one of the top players. Initially, he only had a few schools recruiting him such as Furman, Mercer, Georgia and Auburn, but that has changed. Georgia Tech Paul Hewitt, Florida Billy Donovan, Arkansas Stan Health and many others have taken a front row seat when Clinch's team played at Showtime in Suwannee. Clinch stated that he has been playing a lot of ball for the last two years and is a little tired and sore; but he has to make a big statement. I have known Lewis Clinch since the age of twelve and he's a fine young man with great parents. He's a very humble young man and the sky is the limit for him. Lewis stated that his top teams are Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Florida, Arkansas, Georgia and NC State. Lewis is also considering Auburn. He stated that he wouldn't mind playing with Georgia native Toney Douglas at Auburn. He also stated that he has patterned his game like Toney Douglas's and the two of them would play well together; and Auburn could have the best back in the SEC, probably in America, stated Lewis. Douglas was a Parade All American and one of the Top Prep Players in the country last year. Lewis will visit Auburn in September and would like to sign early.
