The Angelina College Roadrunner basketball team recently added two more high school standouts to an already-impressive signing class for the upcoming 2011-2012 season.
Veontae Lewis of Christian County High School in Hopkinsville, Ky. and Jaylen Daniel of Clark County High School in Winchester, Ky. signed letters of intent to join the Roadrunners.
Lewis, a 6'1" guard, averaged 12.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game and comes from a winning program. In the Kentucky state championship game, Lewis drained an 18-foot game winner to lift Christian County to a 65-63 win in double overtime to win the state title. He was also invited to try out for the prestigious Kentucky All-Star team that annually competes against the Indiana All Stars.
AC head coach Todd Neighbors said of Lewis: "He defends extremely well, makes tough plays offensively and shoots and handles the ball very well. Veontae played for Kerry Stovall, one of the top coaches in the entire state of Kentucky."
Daniels is a 6'7" small forward who averaged 13.4 points, 4 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game in leading Clark County to the quarterfinals of the Kentucky High School state tournament. The "high-flying athlete" shot 46 percent from the three-point line; Neighbors said "Jaylen has a chance to become one of the most highly recruited players in junior college basketball in 2013. He played for another of the top coaches in the state of Kentucky, Scott Humphrey."
