Acaden Lewis, one of the top point guards in the 2025 class, has narrowed his list of offers to eight: Auburn, Duke, Kentucky, Michigan, North Carolina, Syracuse, Tennessee, and UConn.

Lewis breaks down each of his final eight schools in an exclusive interview with On3 here (On3+).

The 6-foot-3 rising senior out of the Sidwell Friends School (DC) has already taken unofficial visits to Kentucky and UConn. He’s also scheduled to take an official visit to North Carolina on October 4th.

In addition to his top eight, Lewis also received offers from Kansas, Indiana, Alabama, Louisville, Virginia, Miami, Pitt, Ole Miss, Georgia Tech, Missouri, Oregon, Georgia, Providence, Maryland, Florida State, Penn State, Virginia Tech, Georgetown, Nebraska, St. John’s, Vanderbilt, Villanova, and others.

The stock-rising four-star guard has recently shot up the rankings, averaging 15.3 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 3.6 assists per game while playing with Team Durant on the EYBL Circuit.

Lewis is the No. 40 overall recruit in the 2025 cycle, according to the On3 Industry Rankings. He’s also the No. 6 point guard prospect and the No. 1 player in D.C. The On3 Industry Ranking is a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.

Lewis talks his process and what he’s looking for in a school

In a previous interview with On3, Acaden Lewis broke down his thinking when it comes to official visits and also what he is looking for in a school.

“I’d like to start taking my official visits basically as soon as the summer is over,” Lewis said. “June is kind of hectic with the NBPA Camp and then the two live periods. So after July, once Peach Jam is over, I’m looking to start going on my official visits. My birthday is October, so I was thinking committing then would be cool, but I don’t want to rush things.

“The culture of the school will be big for me. I want to see how they talk to the top guy, their second guy, their thirteenth guy. See how they treat their managers and everyone in the program. The roster will be big too. WIth the portal and everything going on there, I want to go into a family environment where I know the coaches are invested in me.”
