La Salle Explorers guard Khalid Lewis will transfer out of the basketball program and be immediately eligible to play elsewhere. Alex Kline of “The Recruit Scoop” reported Lewis’ decision on Twitter.
A former star at New Jersey’s Trenton Catholic Academy, Lewis averaged six points and 2.2 assists per game while shooting 37 percent from the field last season. Lewis also averaged 27.5 minutes per game and was a reserve on the La Salle squad that made the Sweet Sixteen in the 2013 NCAA Tournament. He also played a season for Delaware and drew interest from Drexel, Siena, Fairfield and St. Joseph’s as a recruit.
Lewis has yet to give any indication as to where he will transfer, but Campus Sports will update his decision as more information becomes available.
