The nation’s top point guard prospect, Trevon Duval, hasn’t decided yet which high school he’ll complete at this season, but he has made progress on his recruitment. On Monday, Duval released a list of ten finalists to land him for what is likely to be his only college season.
Duval named UCLA, Seton Hall, and Maryland, along with California, Oregon, USC, Kansas, Arizona, Villanova and St. John’s as the squads competing for his services. At 6′-3″, 190 pounds with a 6′-8″ wingspan, Duval has ideal measurables for his position going forward, and has consistently proven himself on the largest of stages (most recently by dominating the Elite 24 game)
As a junior, Duval starred at API (TX), a school in the Dallas-area which put two of its recent stars, Emmanuel Mudiay and Terrance Ferguson into the overseas pro ranks out of high school. Like Ferguson and Mudiay, Duval has been a standard-bearer on the Under Armour circuit as a grassroots player. Duval left API and is expected to land somewhere on the Eastern Seaboard soon.
Simply put, Duval is ranked as the No. 3 player overall in the 2017 class, and universally considered to be an immediate impact player. Without a doubt, any of the ten schools left for him would be lucky to land him.
Thank you to all the schools that have recruited but there are my final 10 schools. 📚🏀💯 pic.twitter.com/GLlRCFPySi
