BOONE — Appalachian State men’s basketball head coach Dustin Kerns has announced the signing of Kendall Lewis, a forward from Shiloh High School in Snellville, Ga.
“We are super excited about the addition of Kendall Lewis to the Mountaineer family,” Kerns said in a statement. “He is a high-character person who comes from a great family with wonderful parents in Eric and Sheila.”
Lewis, who stands 6-foot-6 and weighs 190 pounds, earned AJC All-Metro Gwinnett County honors as a senior at Shiloh High after averaging 18.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.1 blocks. He also was selected to play in the Gwinnett County All-Star Game.
He was a member of the Atlanta Express in AAU competition this spring and averaged 15.1 points and 5.4 rebounds, while shooting 61.5 percent from the field and 66.7 percent on 3-pointers.
“Kendall had an excellent high school career and is a very versatile player with tremendous length and skill,” Kerns said. “He has a natural playmaking ability to score and makes plays for others. With his athleticism, he provides us a strong defensive presence as well.”
Lewis joins Donovan Gregory and J.C. Tharrington as newcomers for the 2019-20 season.
