La Salle guard will transfer and become immediately eligible

La Salle guard Khalid Lewis is transferring from the program and will be immediately eligible as a graduate transfer, according to a report from Alex Kline of The Recruit Scoop. The 6-foot-3 Lewis can man a bit of both guard spots and had a promising start to his college basketball career at Delaware before two largely underwhelming seasons with the Explorers.

Lewis started every game as a freshman at Delaware and helped lead them to a CBI appearance before transferring to La Salle. In the Atlantic 10, Lewis struggled to regain his freshman form, although he did have a much stronger junior season. In his junior campaign, Lewis played around 27 minutes per game and averaged 6 points, 2.2 assists and 2 rebounds per game for the Explorers.

With the market thinning on available guards who can help next season, it will be interesting to see which schools put out feelers for Lewis. If Lewis desires to play at a high-level program, he could fit in nicely as a reserve since he has plenty of experience, while he could likely step in and earn big minutes at a lower level program.

La Salle has some young point guards that will get more playing time with the departure of Lewis as Amar Stukes and Johnnie Shuler are likely to benefit.
