2018 Point Guard Alex Lomax Releases a Final List of Six Schools

ALEX LOMAX

Memphis East (TN) 2018 four-star point guard Alex Lomax released a list of six schools that he will focused on moving forward, at least for now.

“I first want to say thanks to everyone that has recruited me and has ¬†been involved in this recruitment process,” Lomax said via Twitter. “While my recruitment is still open, my focus us now on the following six schools. In alphabetical order they are Florida, Memphis, Missouri, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt and Wichita State.”

Seton Hall, UMass, Temple, LSU and California missed the cut.

Lomax has unofficially visited hometown school Memphis multiple times and said he has a great relationship with Coach Tubby Smith.

“Memphis is my hometown,” Lomax said. “I grew up in Memphis and always loved Memphis. They produce great point guards and great overall teams. Memphis is just home. Memphis is a great program and always been a great program.”

“They are currently in the rebuilding stage right now and it would be a great position for me to come in and try and bring the city back on top,” Lomax continued. “Me and Coach Tubby have a great relationship. We talk daily, always communicating and always on the same page. It’s just a lot of learning when I’m with Coach Tubby and I love it.”

Florida head man Mike White has continued the winning tradition built by current Oklahoma Thunder and former two time national champion coach Billy Donovan.

“Ever since last summer when they offered me we have been in contact everyday,” Lomax reported. “They always keep me hyped, keep me in my zone. They just give me a lot of potential at Florida. I just love Florida, the atmosphere, the way everything is set up out there in Florida. It’s just a great program, great students. It’s a point guard school and they let the point guards play and control the game and tempo.”

When it comes to Wichita State, Lomax said they don’t get the recognition they deserve.

“Wichita State with Coach Gregg Marshall, he just caught my eye,” Lomax said. “With his history and his production of NBA point guards over the last two or three years. His numbers are proven, always on top. Wichita State is a team that’s always in the mix but don’t get the recognition for it.”

Lomax received his first scholarship offer from a coach 2,000 miles away, then California Coach Cuonzo Martin. Lomax relishes that and his relationship with the now Missouri head man.

“Coach Cuonzo is one of the most down to Earth coaches I’ve ever met,” Lomax said. “He was the very first coach that offered me a scholarship when he was at Cal. He offered me again when he took over at Missouri.”

“It’s great for the coach to have a (preseason) top 25 team the first year he comes to a school and having a great recruiting class,” Lomax continued about Martin. “Regardless if Missouri was a top 25 team or not, I fell in love with Coach Cuonzo Martin. We have a great relationship basketball wise.”

Lomax is planning on taking an official visit to Wichita State, most likely the weekend of August 25-27. Officials to both Missouri and Florida are in the works.

While playing with Team Penny on the Nike EYBL Circuit, Lomax averaged 10.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 2.1 steals over 21 games.
