Recruiting wise as would be expected for a player of Fox’s caliber, things are busy with some major heavy hitters in the area making him a top priority. “Picking things up recruiting wise has been Baylor and Texas,” noted Fox. “Ever since Coach (Shaka) Smart arrived I would say Texas has been on me the most. Also Kansas, Kansas State, and Arizona have been on me a lot.” Since getting the job Smart has clearly made an impression on Fox. “He’s just saying that he wants to get to know me,” explained Fox of Smart. “He has only been around for two months, and from the moment he got to Texas he has made me his main priority. I have a good relationship with him right now, and it is just going to keep going.” Baylor has more of a long standing relationship with Fox, and he feel that he fits in well with how they play. “I have the best relationship with Coach (Jerome) Tang, and I talk to Coach (Scott) Drew a lot as well,” said Fox. “I have a great relationship with them and I really like the way they play. I especially like how they have used their point guards like Kenny Cherry and Pierre Jackson where everything goes through them.” At this point Fox says no visits have been set up, but he does know what he will be looking for in a school when the time comes to make a decision. “Mainly I am looking for a relationship with the coach, style of play, and available playing time,” said Fox.
Fox is a top priority
Five-star guard De'Aaron Fox was one of the most impressive players at the Nike EYBL event over Memorial Day. The highly athletic and explosive Fox looked more comfortable at the point guard position, and college coaches are really making him a priority. “Things have been going well,” said Fox of his spring. “I didn’t start off great, but since the first EYBL session I have picked things up. I am just trying to lead my team to victories, and that is what I have been doing.” He continued, “I am focused on defense mostly. I am getting more on-ball steals than usual. Also I am showing coaches I can really lead my team.”
