Kira Lewis will take an unofficial visit to Kentucky next month.

Lewis — a 6-foot-3 guard from Alabama — is scheduled to visit UK on June 10, according to recruiting analyst Jake Weingarten.

One of the top scorers on the Nike circuit this spring, Lewis told the Herald-Leader a few weeks ago that Alabama, Auburn, Baylor, Iowa State and Tennessee were among the schools recruiting him the hardest. Since then, he’s picked up new scholarship offers from Kansas, Indiana and several other top programs.

Lewis jumped up 24 spots to the No. 24 position in the new 247Sports rankings for the 2019 class released Thursday. UK assistant coach Kenny Payne reached out to him last month.
