Devon Dotson close to narrowing list

Four-star point guard Devon Dotson is close to narrowing down his list. Read on for an update on his recruitment and more.

Charlotte Providence Day School point guard Devon Dotson continues to be one of Arizona top targets in the 2018 class and has put together a strong spring.

“I think overall everything went well,” Dotson said. “I picked up a few offers and the team played well. I am pretty happy with my play, but I always want to get better.”

Dotson wasn’t always on the recruiting radars of some of the best schools in the country, but he has improved quite a bit in the last year.

“I make smarter decisions and I am a smarter overall playmaker,” Dotson said. “I am letting the game come to me and being more of a leader on the court.”

The 6-foot-1, 175-pound four-star prospect is hearing from a variety of schools and is in the process of separating them.

“I am hearing from Arizona, Florida, and Kansas a lot,” he said. “USC, Virginia, Miami, Maryland, and there are others.

“When you get to the high level programs, they are all similar with the main stuff they offer like academics and things like that. Each program has their different pitch, but it is sort of the same also.”

The Wildcats’ pitch revolves around simply wanting a point guard of Dotson’s ability to come in and make an impact.

“Arizona tells me they want a dynamic point guard like myself to come in and help be a leader on the court and work with Sean Miller,” Dotson said.

As Dotson goes through the process, he has a good idea of what he is looking for and when he wants to make a final decision as well.

“I am focusing on good relationships with the coaching staff and how I am going to develop as a player to get to the next level,” he said.

“I am looking to cut my list pretty soon, but I am not sure about any official visits. My goal is to decide by the fall, but you never know.”
