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.

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.
