Scottie Lewis told Elevate Hoops that
The first to contact me was St. John’s... They texted me,” said Lewis. “They said they can put me in position for me to make it to the next level and basically bring back what St. John’s use to be.”
Speaking of which, Bryan Antoine and Scottie Lewis will unofficially visit next Wednesday.

As for 2018...
Meanwhile, Luther Muhammad is a high-level target for the Johnnies. But now Ohio State is also in the hunt- mostly because Chris Holtmann loved his combination of shot-making and defensive toughness.
