Isaiah Lewis’ benching hasn’t scared off college coaches.

The talented junior basketball guard said he has heard from several schools since Christ the King’s season ended prematurely with him on the bench in the CHSAA Class AA intersectional quarterfinals, and he cut his list down to five Monday. Lewis lists Georgia Tech, Louisville, Kansas, Memphis and Florida State, he said.

The 6-foot-3 junior won’t set up visits until sometime in June or July, he said, and will “most likely” be playing AAU again with Albany City Rocks, he said.

Lewis was benched for the city playoffs by Christ the King Coach Joe Arbitello for what he termed “a coach’s decision” that had nothing to do with grades. Lewis accepted the benching well, saying it was a “valuable lesson.” At the time, Lewis said it had to do with him getting “over-emotional” on the floor and not playing as a point guard should.

As for college, Lewis was close to picking a school back in late December, but opted to open up his recruiting and wait.

“I don’t want to rush into a bad situation,” he said then. “I’m going to take my time with it. If I’m committed to a school, I want to be committed to that school.”
