Justin Lewis (247 No. 102) will be back for his second season on the circuit, and he's fortunate to have the experience to pull from last season.
In 2018, Lewis averaged 7.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 2.0 assists after being called up from Team Melo's 16U united. Lewis is a physical player down low but he's more than capable of seeing up his own offense from the perimeter.
