Jacksonville, FL (Future150) -- One of the most polished scorers in the 2021 class that we were able to evaluate over the past year also happens to be one of the major sleepers in the state of Florida for his class.

Bishop Snyder (FL) 6'1" shooting guard Austin Lewis has a pure stroke and excellent mechanics on his jumper, and it was on full display at our Future150 Elite24 All-American Camp in August.

"One of the most skilled prospects at the camp was the 6'1" scorer. In particular, he has an excellent mid-range game and works well off-the-dribble. Sporting an impressive 6'5" wingspan with size 15 feet, we won't be surprised to see him sprout a few more inches in the coming year. Heading to Bishop Snyder (FL) in Jacksonville, he is one of the most impressive prospects in North Florida right now. His ability to get to the rim should not be undervalued, as he uses his length and smoothness to finish plays regularly at the rim." 

Unsurprisingly, the University of North Florida has already begun to express interest in the talented wing prospect, who is off to a nice start with his varsity squad, putting together multiple double-digit scoring performances to start the year. 

"I really want us to win our district this year. I'd like to average double-digits in points, but mainly I just want to do whatever I can to help us get as many wins as possible," he told Future150.

Playing alongside nationally ranked sophomore Corey Walker, an impressive 6'6" wing with multiple high-major scholarship offers already, there will be no shortage of coaches stopping in to see the Cardinals play this season. Just a few games into the season, coaches from Florida, Jacksonville & North Florida have already checked in on the program. 

"The strongest aspect of my game right now is my shooting. I have a pretty good stroke. I'm working on my ball-handling skills and making the right reads on offense," the avid reader told our staff.

With a father who played football at Auburn, and with projected continued growth, the future is certainly bright for Lewis.

The Bishop Snyder program looks to be in good hands over the next several years behind the talented duo of Corey Walker and Austin Lewis. This year is just the beginning.
