As the 2022 GEICO Nationals got underway on Thursday, a Syracuse basketball recruiting target in the 2023 cycle recently picked up a major award in the super league where he competes.

Aden Holloway, a four-star point guard who received an Orange scholarship offer a couple of years ago, has put forth a really strong junior season for the powerhouse La Lumiere School in La Porte, Ind.

The La Lumiere School is a member of the eight-team National Interscholastic Basketball Conference (“NIBC”), and Holloway’s squad was among those groups selected to participate in this stanza’s GEICO Nationals, which takes place from March 31 to April 2 at the Suncoast Credit Union Arena in Ft. Myers, Fla.

According to a tweet from the NIBC, the 6-foot-1 Holloway was named the conference’s 6th man of the year for the 2021-22 campaign. He was also recently chosen for the All-Conference third team.

Syracuse basketball four-star recruit Aden Holloway has been fabulous this term.

In the 2021-22 regular season, NIBC members suited up for 10 official in-conference games, and the La Lumiere School sported a 6-4 overall mark.

According to statistics posted on the NIBC Web site, in those 10 contests, Holloway averaged 15.6 points per affair, good for No. 7 in the league. He also connected on an impressive 59.1 percent from the field (No. 3 in the NIBC) and 87.9 percent from the charity stripe (No. 1).

Holloway transferred to the La Lumiere School from the Covenant Day School in Matthews, N.C., following his sophomore season. According to recruiting services, he picked up a ‘Cuse offer back in the summer of 2019.

Holloway’s other offers, per media reports, recruiting services and his own Twitter page, include from Tennessee, Arizona State, Creighton, LSU, Cincinnati, Auburn, Wichita State, Notre Dame, Virginia Tech, Texas A&M, Wake Forest and Winthrop.

A tweet from Pro Insight director of scouting Andrew Slater says that Holloway took an official visit to Southeastern Conference juggernaut Auburn earlier this year.

To date, I haven’t seen any predictions from national analysts or other recruiting insiders as to a potential collegiate destination for Holloway, whose recruiting process could have a way to go.

According to the main recruiting services, all of which have updated their national rankings for the junior cycle of late, Holloway is a consensus four-star, top-65 prospect in the 2023 class.

He is rated as high as No. 31 overall in the 2023 cycle, according to ESPN, and he’s also the No. 7 point guard nationally, per this recruiting service.

The majority of recruiting Web sites deem Holloway a top-50 player in this class, as well as a top-10 point guard. We’ll continue to follow his recruitment, and I’m hopeful that Syracuse basketball will emerge as a viable contender for Holloway.
