Texas transfer Julien Lewis chooses Fresno State

USA TODAY Sports

One of Texas' top scorers from last season is headed out west.

Former Texas Longhorns guard Julien Lewis will transfer to the Fresno State Bulldogs, Lewis said in an interview with FOX 26 in Houston. Lewis will play for Bulldogs head coach Rodney Terry, who was an assistant coach at Texas from 2002-11.

Lewis, who is from Galveston, Texas, will sit out the 2013-14 season and have two years of eligibility remaining. He said it felt good to make a decision and be able to start with a new school. Playing for Terry appears to be a good fit as Lewis said the Bulldogs' head coach knows his game well.

Lewis is one of three players to transfer away from the Longhorns after last season. Texas finished the year 16-18 and lost in the first round of the CBI. The 6'3 guard averaged 11.2 points and 3.2 rebounds per game in his freshman season, playing almost 27 minutes per game for head coach Rick Barnes. He was the Longhorns' third-leading scorer.

The Bulldogs are 24-39 in two seasons under Terry.
