Four-star class of 2025 recruit Aleks Alston is officially visiting Tennessee basketball on Oct. 14 according to a report from 24/7 High School Hoops.

Alston is a Chicago native and standout at Kenwood Academy. He’s one of the top players in the midwest in the 2025 recruiting cycle and ranks as the No. 1 player in Illinois.

The 6-foot-79prospect ranks as a four-star recruit and the No. 73 player in the country according to the 247sports composite rankings. Alston also ranks as the 16th best power forward in the 2025 recruiting cycle.

While recruiting services rank Alston as a power forward, the lanky forward plays on the wing more than he does in the paint. Alston has a strong shooting stroke and can score off the bounce while facing the basket.

Tennessee is still looking for its first commitment in both the 2024 and 2025 recruiting classes. Rick Barnes and his staff missed on some of its top targets in the 2024 cycle earlier this summer and are currently laying the groundwork for their top targets in 2025.

In addition to Alston, Tennessee is hosting four-stars Jeremiah Fears, Tylis Jordan and Jermaine O’Neal Jr. for visits this fall.

Tennessee basketball enters the 2023-24 season with high expectations. Coming off a run to the Sweet 16 a season ago, the Vols added transfers Jordan Gainey and Dalton Knecht to a roster which includes returning starters Zakai Zeigler, Santiago Vescovi and Josiah-Jordan James.
