Trevon Hughes: Hawkeyes vs Badgers

Trevon Hughes Update

Trevon Hughes has narrowed his college choices to Wisconsin and Iowa, according to Brian Richert, his coach at St. John's Military Academy in Delafield, Wis.

"He's very high on Iowa simply from he's got a great relationship with the coaches there," Richert said. "And [he has] a great relationship with the Wisconsin coaches."

The 6-foot-1 Hughes,'s No. 12 ranked point guard in the class of 2006, is taking an unofficial visit to Wisconsin Wednesday. He will be in Iowa City for Iowa's elite camp June 4-5.

"I don't think he'll commit tomorrow because he's going to wait until the elite camp in Iowa too; probably because he wants to see both," Richert said. "Then I would think… after the Iowa elite camp… he'll probably have a decision. I don't know if he'll announce it but he'll at least have a thinking of where he wants to go."

By Richert's count, Hughes has taken about 10 unofficial visits to Wisconsin and about five to Iowa.

He has yet to take any official visits, however, and he may not make one before he comes to a decision due to the hurdles associated with leaving St. John's.

"It is just hard to leave the campus," Richert said. "You have to have a certain rank. You have to have a certain GPA. There is just a lot of criteria because it's [a military] academy and his parents live in New York [City], he can't just hop in a car and go. So he has to follow certain guidelines."

Richert added: "Even though the academy understands and they are there for Trevon there are just certain guidelines that they have to go by and they can't really favor Trevon too much otherwise others behind him will say, ‘Well, then I want to do it.' They just don't want to get into that."

Hughes averaged 22.5 points, 7.8 assists, 8.1 rebounds and about four steals per game as a junior last season.

He boasts a 3.2 grade-point average.
