Syracuse basketball was the first high-major team to offer 2023 four-star point guard Aden Holloway, with that scholarship offer coming a couple of years ago, according to the Verbal Commits Web site.

However, the competition for the 6-foot-1 Holloway, a consensus top-80 prospect in the 2023 class, continues to heat up. Holloway, for one, put forth a stellar junior season at the powerhouse La Lumiere School in La Porte, Ind., during a 2021-22 term where he was named 6th man of the year in the prestigious National Interscholastic Basketball Conference.

This past weekend, as the spring AAU circuit got underway in earnest during an NCAA live period, college coaches had the opportunity to watch Holloway shine as he put forth some monster games and earned high praise from national recruiting analysts, such as On3’s Joe Tipton.

According to, Holloway registered 16 points, 21 points and 11 points in a trio of triumphs for the Winston-Salem, N.C.-based Team Cp3, which is an excellent AAU team on the Nike EYBL circuit.

Syracuse basketball may prove a long shot to win out for point guard Aden Holloway.

Per Holloway’s Twitter page and recruiting services, he recently picked up an offer from Big Ten Conference heavyweight Michigan. Other prior offers include from Tennessee, Arizona State, Creighton, LSU, Cincinnati, Auburn, Wichita State, Notre Dame, Virginia Tech, Texas A&M, Wake Forest and Winthrop.

According to Verbal Commits, the ‘Cuse offered Holloway in July of 2019.

In a recent article from On3 national analyst Jamie Shaw, Holloway said that he has taken official visits to Auburn and Wake Forest, and he has one set up for Tennessee in the near future.

Naturally, I hope that Holloway will elect to make a trip to the Hill. Candidly, though, when I’ve seen stories on Holloway’s recruitment of late, I haven’t seen many mentions of Syracuse basketball at all.

To date, there aren’t any predictions for Holloway’s future collegiate destination on the 247Sports Web site, the On3 Web site or That being said, I would imagine that Auburn, Wake Forest and Tennessee could be significant contenders for him.

Holloway’s stock continues to rise on a national scale. Most recruiting services place him within the top-50 overall in the 2023 class, as well as a top-10 point guard in this cycle.

ESPN, at this juncture, is the most bullish on Holloway, rating him at No. 31 across the country and No. 7 at point guard in the 2023 class.
