Stock rising four-star combo guard Acaden Lewis locks in official visit to UNC

Lewis received offers recently from Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina, Indiana, and Auburn after rising 44 spots in the most current 247Sports rankings.

Guard Acaden Lewis, a member of the class of 2025, is arranging both official and unofficial trips to two of the nation’s best basketball programs.

The 6′ 2″, 170-pound combo guard from the Washington, D.C. region had originally planned an unofficial visitation on June 25 against the Connecticut Huskies, the defending national champions, but he will instead make a brief trip to North Carolina on June 27. On October 4, Lewis will return to Chapel Hill for his first formal visit.

Lewis is rated as the No. 6 combo guard and the 34th best prospect overall in the 2025 class.

Lewis has had a busy spring. His recruiting has increased dramatically, as has his standing as a prospect in the 2025 class. He became more well-known during his junior year at Sidwell Friends School, where he established himself as one of the DMV’s top prospects. Lewis played at a good level during the grassroots season. On the Nike EYBL circuit, he is averaging 15.3 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 3.6 assists for Team Durant.

Lewis moved up 44 spots (from No. 78 to No. 34) in the class of 2025 rankings according to the most recent report from 247Sports.

During an unofficial visit to Lexington on Monday, Kentucky extended an offer to Lewis, demonstrating the rapid growth of his recruiting in recent weeks. In addition to the Wildcats, offers have been issued since April by Kansas, Indiana, Auburn, Alabama, North Carolina, Missouri, Cincinnati, Miami, Pittsburgh, Louisville, Michigan, and numerous other schools.

According to Travis Branham, National Basketball Analyst for 247Sports, “Lewis’ big rise during this update is because he continues to deliver on every big stage and never shies away from a challenge.”

“He has been on a tear dating back to December of 2023 when he torched nets at the National Hoops Festival,” Branham stated. “The 6-foot-2 point guard’s ability to dribble the basketball, move quickly, make clutch shots, and create plays has elevated his game to a new level. Lewis is a menace from anywhere on the court and even more so when he has the ball in his hands, so you can’t ever allow him to settle in. Lewis can score from all three levels, is a clever playmaker, can change direction and pace quickly, and breaks down opponents.”

Lewis most recently made an impression at the NPBA Top 100 camp this year.

From Orlando, Branham reported, “Lewis, a 2025 prospect from the Washington, D.C. area, was the MVP of this game.” “He consistently produced opportunities for himself and others with his spectacular ball handling and scoring ability. Lewis was effective in his productivity, hitting jumpers from three, getting into the paint, and finishing around the basket.”

Lewis was named co-MVP by Branham for the whole NBPA Top 100 Camp.
