National recruiting analyst Andrew Slater logged a Crystal Ball prediction in favor of Villanova for five-star wing Scottie Lewis on Sunday morning.
Lewis — a 6-foot-5 prospect in the class of 2019 — is one of UK’s top recruiting targets, and John Calipari and Tony Barbee have visited with him several times in the past few months. Lewis is also high school and Under Armour league teammates with five-star guard Bryan Antoine, another top UK recruiting target.
Villanova and Florida have been seen as two UK’s top competitors in Lewis’ recruitment. Nova, the reigning national champion, is located a little more than an hour from Lewis’ high school.
