Mike Lewis II - Coming Home

Recommended Posts

I’m going to equate this to the blues bringing in Pat Maroon. No matter how accurate that comparison is

So is he eligible immediately or at semester? Did he announce his transfer from Nevada mid-season so that is why he didn’t play more than half the year or was it an injury?

If the staff was going to use a scholarship on a grad transfer guard, I'm glad they chose Lewis.  He wanted to come home and and understands how to play off the ball.  Can impact the game as a three point specialist even in limited minutes.

If he's not a grad transfer I don't understand the pickup.

You’re missing the part where we still have 2 scholarships to go and as of right now no seniors next year.

We usually agree but if a local shooter wants to come home and shoot... i don’t question it. I’ll take it

It’s an interesting deal. Good player, but I have no idea what his eligibility situation is. He didn’t finish his sitting out time at Nevada, so can he get out of sitting out any more time on account of Musselman leaving? Is there a chance he graduates early and counts as a grad transfer? Other players have announced they were entering the transfer portal, but he didn’t. Maybe he is a grad transfer. Anyway, maybe it’s a partial righting of one if the basketball doofus’s numerous screw-ups.

KSDK story reads like a normal transfer and he’s going to petition to be eligible immediately

This is great news! No more pitbull around here? We need shooters to space the floor for French. Lewis Jimerson, potentially Perkins and Fred. More shooters the better. Quick release from deep.

He certainly has a stronger case to play immediately than some recent waivers we've seen.

This is more of Travis playing the long game with St Louis recruiting. You bring mike Lewis home and you further align yourself with Jayson Tatum and the St Louis community. Staying home to play Billiken basketball is now a first thought for local talent instead of a second choice.

He hit 89 three’s his sophomore year and a shade under 37%. I’ll certainly take that. Hopefully he can play right away.

So looks like he played two and a half seasons at Duquesne.  So seems he starts playing second semester next year and has a year and a half eligibility????  Ready for conference play.

That’s what I am seeing as well but everyone seems confused on the situation for some reason.

Goodwin and French have more pt than the average junior I would imagine.

If you play in one game you have used a years eligibity unless you get a medical redshirt. He can play second semester and use the rest of his eligibilty or sit out the year and play all of 2020.

If Smith got a waiver to play right away at Missouri, he should get one too. He has been through two coaching changes. Smith had none.

It shouldn’t be hard to get him eligible immediately. Nice pickup.

I agree to an extent. I don’t want SLU to be the “I can always transfer back there” school either though.

Ford wasn’t around when Lewis committed Or he already did or was brand new. 

Yes Mike Lewis can get a waiver after a coaching change. It’s textbook waiver. However he would rather play conference then play a year instead of play a year then be done next year December
