There’s a fair argument that 2025 Sidwell Friends and Team Durant point guard Acaden Lewis is the trendiest prospect in the country at the moment regardless of class. Head coaches will be in for him this weekend playing at DC Live in droves and one of those planning to be courtside is Kevin Willard. Here’s the latest on the Terps and Lewis.

Following Sunday, the Terps are hosting Lewis for an unofficial visit, a source told IMS told.

COLORADO SPRINGS — It happens every spring. The national blowup. While Chris Cenac was far from an unknown entering the spring, it’s hard to imagine any player in the class of 2025 has seen his stock soar as much after the the versatile 6-foot-10 big man from New Orleans landed 21 high major offers in less than two months.

Heading into the spring, Cenac had spent the last couple of years hovering in the top 50-60 range of the national rankings. He had showed plenty of promise but not yet any consistency. After crushing it on the Puma circuit with YGC, tearing up the NBPA Top 100 Camp and making USA Basketball’s U17 national team, there are no longer questions about his consistency and he’s moved up to No. 15 in the national rankings while landing over 20 new scholarship offers in just a month and a half.

Was it a case of everything coming together for a young player or just a matter of coaches and scouts finally seeing what he is capable of? Cenac answered that question.

“I think it’s a bit of both,” Cenac told 247Sports. “I’m in the gym every day working, doing what I can to get better and at the same time I just needed a platform where I could show my skillset and show NBA scouts, college coaches and the world what I can do.Mike Woodson uses NIL, transfer portal to rebuild IU basketball roster

“Just how versatile I am. I feel like I can do a little bit of everything on the court. I can play defense, I can dribble the ball, I can shoot the ball, post a guy up just do a bit of everything.”

Prior to the spring Cenac already had offers from programs like AuburnCaliforniaHoustonLSUMemphis and Tennessee. Over the last few months things have gone bonkers with the likes of ArkansasIndianaKansasKentuckyMichiganTexas, UCLA, two-time defending National Champion Connecticut and many others offering. Things have happened so fast that Cenac and his family haven’t even had a chance to process it all.

“It has been kind of hectic but it has given me a lot of confidence and the drive to just work harder and push harder,” said Cenac. “I’m blessed to have those offers and things like that. But I’m still focused on getting better and making it to my main goal.”
