Five-star point guard Trevon Duval has been considered the best point guard in the class of 2017 for a long time. The athletic Duval has continue to show himself at the Steph Curry Select Camp to be one of the top overall prospects in high school basketball, and keeps moving forward with his recruitment.
“It is great to be here in California and learning from the MVP,” said Duval of the camp. “It has been a really fun experience.”
He continued, “It teaches me a lot. I learn what it is like on the next level. Seeing the best point guard in the league helps a lot.”
At this point Duval still has interest from coast-to-coast, and remains open to all options.
“I am just going to see how July goes and see what coaches are talking about,” said Duval. “Then in August I will release a top 10 or 15 or something like that.”
He continued about the process, “At this point I am really open to everyone. It is really just about seeing who is the best fit for me, and which coaches really communicate with me.”
One school that has been a presence with Duval since day one is Villanova. Philadelphia is close to Duval’s native Delaware, and he is very familiar with the Wildcats program.
“They are the national champs, and that speaks for itself,” said Duval of Villanova. “Also they are a guard heavy school that plays my style. Coach (Jay) Wright really develops his guards and helps them become better players.”
Another school that has long been involved with Duval is Maryland, and Mark Turgeon continues to remain active in his recruitment.
“Maryland, they have a nice playing style that fits me,” noted Duval. “They do a lot of pick and rolls, and also it is close to home which is nice.”
For now though it is all unofficial visits and taking things slow. When the time does come to make trips, Duval only intends to make official visits to his top schools.
“I will probably plan to officially visit schools that are in my top five,” said Duval. “I will probably do that way later on in the process.”
