Interesting late recruit, someone mentioned Lane and they do appear to have similar size. Great sign that he can shoot with both hands and he looked like he has a little deception in his game where he dodges hard then throws a softer type shot past the goalie whose looking for a missile. Seems like a really good pick up this late in the process. Would be interested to know who turned SU onto him.
Ryan Powell is probably the guy who first saw him right? Makes sense that this kid would show up at one of his west coast projects.
agree P22- I like all these guys. Ferris and Birtwhistle seem a cut above the recent gets.Looks to be a promising player. Obviously his size is what stands out the most and that gives him huge upside. He is quite tall, but I don't see the comparisons to Matt Lane that clearly. This kid looks like a natural middie, Lane played attack in high school, and to me never looked quite comfortable in the open field. Lane was also a lot bigger, weight wise in high school. I've said it before, but I'll always wonder what might have been had Lane stuck at attack and kept the weight on. At midfield he always looked a little lost and not comfortable with his frame.
Lewis looks like a midfielder, but needs to tighten some things up, he looks very one handed and looks uncomfortable when he has to switch hands. But overall, can't teach height and looks to be a good and powerful shooter. It seems like combined with McGuire and Ferris, as well as Birtswistle, who doesn't look like he has height, but looks solidly built, this recruiting class is getting some physically large offensive players.
