Curt Lewis is a 2019 elite prospect point guard who plays for Aspire Academy in Louisville, Kentucky. He has an explosive offensive game in which he can play inside or outside at 6-4 184. His court vision is crisp. He can find players anywhere on the court and is dangerous in transition. I had a one on one with him about his LaSalle offer and the rest of his recruitment.
