NEPTUNE, N.J. — Scottie Lewis hears regularly from the staffs at Kentucky, Duke and Florida, but after spending a recent weekend with Harvard coach Tommy Amaker, he’s now thinking outside the box about his recruitment.
The 6-foot-5 Lewis, a small forward ranked No. 8 in the 2019 ESPN 60, said he and his Ranney teammates Bryan Antoine (No. 12 in 2019), Alex Klatsky and Chris Autino are talking about potentially joining forces at Harvard to start something new at the Ivy League school.
“Yeah, just trying to basically do what we did at Ranney and bringing it all the way to Harvard,” Lewis told me Sunday at the Super Skillcase run by Train Impossible. “The great part about that is no one can say it was the wrong choice to go to Harvard. There’s so much within that campus and so much knowledge within those professors that there’s not a bad situation to go to Harvard. Just to create a story and feed on the legacy of the four freshmen going to Ranney and doing the same thing at a school like Harvard, it would just be a great story.”
