Explorers Land Delaware transfer Khalid Lewis

 According to The Recruit Scoop and various other recruiting websites, Khalid Lewis, a 6'3", 185 pound guard from the University of Delaware, will be transferring to La Salle.  Lewis, a Trenton, NJ native who played his high school ball at Trenton Catholic Academy, will have three years of eligibility remaining after sitting out the required 2012-13 transfer year.  He was a recruiting target of the La Salle coaching staff coming out of TCA but they did not let him get away the second time around.
Khalid had a fine freshman year at Delaware, starting all 32 games at the point while averaging 5.2 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 2.6 assists for the 18-14 Blue Hens, who advanced to the postseason, playing in the College Invitational Tournament.  Lewis is a lockdown defender and had a solid 1.3 assist to turnover ratio (83 assists versus 63 turnovers).  He should be able to step into the 2013-14 guard rotation, replacing Ramon Galloway who will graduate in 2013.
