Acaden Lewis is a 6-foot-3 combo guard from Baltimore, Maryland, who could be a great addition to the UNC basketball program. Lewis currently ranks as one of ESPN's top 100 High School Recruits, as he is the No. 67 overall prospect and the No. 12 best prospect at his position.

Over the weekend, the news broke on "X" that The Tar Heels have expressed interest.

Lewis has received a ton of interest in the college basketball world. Starting in the ACC, Lewis has heard from schools such as Miami, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and more. He has also heard from blue-blood schools Villanova and Kentucky.

North Carolina Basketball has 8 scholarships available for the 2025-2026 season. If Elliot Cadeau continues his growth, he will most likely be going to the NBA by the time Lewis arrives at the college ranks, and the same could be said for five-star Ian Jackson, who has the makings of being a "one-and-done" type of player. The need for a guard in the 2025 class will be very important for Hubert Davis and the Tar Heels.

The UNC basketball program has made two offers to combo guards in the class of 2025. The first was ESPN's No. 8 ranked recruit Jasper Johnson, the No. 8-ranked player in his graduating class, along with Derek Dixon (No. 62 overall). We could see Acaden Lewis joining these two with an offer from North Carolina in the near future.

Hubert Davis and North Carolina have been successful in recruiting this past off-season. According to 247 Sports, the Tar Heels' 2024 recruiting class was the No. 9-ranked in the country and the third-ranked among ACC teams. They are looking to add more star High School talent in 2025 to continue the growth of North Carolina Tar Heel Basketball.
