Dwight Lewis Commits to KU!

Welcome Dwight Lewis. Some KU fans may bicker about your #84 ranking in the class. I tell them now not to worry, because you are a rocker. From the LJW homepage:

Dwight Lewis, a 6-foot-5, 190-pound shooting guard/small forward from Archbishop Rummel in Metairie, La., has given a verbal committment to play men's basketball at Kansas University. Lewis is the No. 21-ranked shooting guard and No. 84-ranked player overall in the class of 2006 by rivals.com. See Wednesday's Journal-World and KUsports.com for a full story.

How about that, before the visit and everything. Chalk one up to Self and Co. and expect to see Mr. Lewis in the McD's game next year, no matter what these rankings say now(they're pretty old listings). Remember, Dwight Lewis was one of only 6 juniors on the Parade AA team this year.

I'm very excited about this. Now bring on a big!

UPDATE: LJW has updated their coverage. I love Dwight Lewis's dad.

"There are no negatives about Kansas. So why wait, why prolong it?" Lewis Sr. said. "He's known about Kansas' reputation and program, one of the elite as far as basketball is concerned. How can you not know about Kansas?"
