Three after Fox the hardest

2016 combination guard DeAaron Fox has a handful of high major offers and says three schools are after him the hardest.

One of the premier guards in the 2016 class – DeAaron Fox – is off to a great start to his sophomore season.

"Right now I'm doing good," Fox told "I haven't scored a game under 20 and I'm getting to the free throw line a lot."

Last week at the Hoopsgiving event, Fox, a 6-foot-3 combination guard, showed off a variety of impressive attributes. An elite level athlete, Fox has the ball skills and vision to play on the ball, but also the scoring ability to play off of it.

"I'm a natural point guard, but here I can play off the ball a lot and post up since I'm bigger than most guards," Fox said. "I just like being versatile and changing up what I do, so coaches can't say I'm only good at one thing."

Fox also showed off a floater that he's been working on in the gym.

"When I was younger, I shot the floater a lot then when I developed a jump shot I went away from it," he said. "I'm trying to get it back this year."

Fox currently claims scholarship offers from Baylor, Texas A&M, Texas, Texas State, SMU and Houston. Arkansas is also involved in his recruitment.

"Baylor is coming at me hard," Fox said. "Texas and SMU are coming at me hard too."

"It's really early," he added about his recruitment.

Fox is currently ranked as the No. 5 shooting guard and the No. 23 overall prospect in the 2016 class.
