UAA: Savion Flagg emerges as a high-major target

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind - Not too many people were aware of Savion Flagg before this spring, but now he is emerging as one of the best prospects in the state of Texas in the 2017 class.

The state of Texas always produces a ton of talent, and even with that some kids seem to slip through the cracks until very late in the process. One of the players is Savion Flagg. Flagg, who has now emerged as a true high-major priority guy, is having an excellent spring with the Houston Defenders, and is seeing offers come in.

“I have scholarship offers from Texas A&M, Virginia Tech, Creighton, Rice, Kansas State, Houston, TCU, Northwestern, and Purdue,” said Flagg.

He continued, “I visited A&M and Stephen F. Austin during the season.”

Texas A&M is a relatively short trip from his house, and Flagg says he came away impressed with what he saw in College Station.

“I really liked their facilities and their coaching staff and everything,” said Flagg. “They seem like great guys.”

While Flagg made a few visits during the year, one Big Ten school came in this week to see Flagg for an in-home visit.

“I had an in-home visit on Monday with Northwestern,” said Flagg. “I really like Northwestern. They have a great education, and that is the first thing I’m worried about, and also I like their style of play.”

Northwestern came in for a visit, while fellow Big Ten school, Purdue, has already really turned up the heat on Flagg.

“They say they really like my game and that I fit in well with them offensively as well as defensively,” said Flagg of Purdue.

He went on, “Carsen Edwards talks to me about Purdue. When I posted that I got a Purdue offer he texted me and he is going to try and get me to go there.”

For now Flagg is just getting as much information as he can about the schools in the mix for his services, but he does know when he plans on making a decision.

“I am going to play out the spring and then make a verbal commitment at the end of the summer,” noted Flagg.
