It's been quite a recruiting journey for Robert Lewis, but it appears to have finally come to an end. Lewis is officially headed to Washington State after selecting WSU at a ceremony Friday night. Earlier this week, Lewis said he would be making the announcement during halftime of his high school's basketball game. Shortly after, this tweet came from Eric Sondheimer of the Los Angeles Times.
