Maxwell Lewis is the latest high school basketball player to forgo college and train for next year’s draft.
The four-star, class of 2021 recruit announced on Monday that he will be training with Chameleon BX, following in the footsteps of other high-profile recruits like five-star, class of 2020 recruit MarJon Beauchamp.
Today, I'm excited to formally announce my decision to prepare for the 2021 NBA Draft and begin training with @chameleon_bx . I’m a big believer in setting goals and working hard to be the best I can be. #nba #2021 Thank you to all the coaches and programs who have helped me out. pic.twitter.com/dPYDZIZ3il— maxwell lewis (@maxwelll2002) July 20, 2020
Lewis was originally set to play his senior season at Arizona-based Hillcrest Prep, transferring in from another in-state school, AZ Compass Prep, where he averaged approximately 15 points per game last season.
He received offers from Baylor, Arizona State, Utah, TCU, Texas A&M, USC, Washington State, New Mexico, Nevada, as well as Big East schools, St. John’s and DePaul.
