Trevon Duval (UA/Kelly Kline)

Baylor is hosting the top point guard in the nation this week, as Trevon Duval is in town for the senior night.

The Baylor Bears are looking for a point guard to round out there 2017 recruiting class, and they have their sights aimed at the best in the nation.  Trevon Duval, a 6-3, 190 pound guard at IMG Academy, arrived in Waco late Sunday afternoon.

Duval set his final five schools a few months ago, settling on Baylor, Duke, Kansas, Seton Hall and Arizona.  He visited Kansas on January 31st, with a trip to Duke following the week of February 8th.  Last weekend, Duval was out at Arizona and is following that visit up to Baylor now.  Seton Hall has not been able to schedule a visit. 

Speaking with Wildcat Authority after his visit this weekend, Dual said “After that I’m planning to take some time and have a long talk with my parents, think about it, see what other people do and see how March Madness goes then I’ll decide from there. I don’t think I’ll commit before the McDonald’s All American Game.”

The premier point guard in the 2017 class, Duval is a legitimate difference maker from day-one on whatever campus he steps foot on.  Duval is originally from Dallas, attending Advanced Preparatory before transferring to IMG for his final season of high school basketball.   

Evaluation

A slick, quick backcourt performer who has grown to 6-3, Duval already is tested on both the EYBL and Under Armour circuits and has won summer championships in both leagues. He's an excellent scorer and playmaker with impressive athleticism. Duval is a terrific finisher and arguably the best lay up maker in high school basketball. He does a great job of adjusting his shots at the rim and plays well through contact. Duval has also improved as a playmaker and a passer. We love his confidence and unflappable demeanor along with his tough defense. The next step in his development is becoming more consistent as a shooter. His shot mechanics certainly aren't broke and he's capable of making shots, but becoming more consistent as a shooter is a key. Duval is currently the top point guard in the class of 2017.
