KJ Lewis, a top-30 national prospect in the 2023 class, tells On3 he’s down to eight schools – Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Baylor, Houston, Memphis, Texas Tech, and UCLA.

Lewis, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard out of El Paso (Texas) Chapin is the No. 27 overall recruit in the 2023 On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.

The Texas native has taken official visits to Memphis, Arizona, and Texas Tech. He’s taken unofficial visits to Houston, Texas Tech, and Baylor. However, his decision will likely come down between Texas Tech and Arizona.

Lewis says he does not plan to take any other visits and would like to announce a commitment within the next three-five weeks.

He discussed his two recent official visits to Texas Tech and Arizona with On3.

Lewis talks Texas Tech and Arizona visit

Texas Tech: “Tech was good. I really enjoyed it. The coaching staff are definitely all great people and it’s always great to be around people like that. The atmosphere in Tech is crazy.”

Arizona: “Since I was a kid, Arizona has always been my dream school so I was really excited to get out there. Coach (Tommy) Lloyd is a great coach coming from Gonzaga. Their style of play is fast, uptempo, sharing the ball, high IQ. They also have great fans there. The atmosphere was definitely crazy versus USC. It’s Arizona, you know? You can’t go wrong with it. I just had a great time in general.”
