Luguentz Dort, a 2018 guard from Canada playing in Jacksonville, Fla., has landed an offer from the Louisville basketball staff

Canadian guard Luguentz Dort picked up an offer from the Louisville basketball staff last weekend. The 6-foot-3 Dort plays for Arlington Country Day in Jacksonville, Fla.

Luguentz Dort was having a banner season for Jacksonville, Fla., Arlington Country Day.

The 6-foot-4 guard originally from Canada was averaging about 22 points per game, according to coach Shaun Wiseman, before he broke his arm about midway through the season.

Dort is back and making waves again this spring on the adidas Gauntlet circuit with Brookwood Elite.

"He was leading us in scoring," Wiseman said. "He's competitive and is a great kid. He's just been cleared recently and he's playing well. I went to Atlanta (two weeks ago) and he's playing well."

Dort, a member of the Class of 2018, is playing so well that high majors are taking note.

Wiseman, who coached current Louisville big man Anas Mahmoud at West Oaks Academy in Florida, said Dort already has offers from Florida, Missouri and Baylor. He added one late last week from Louisville.

"Coach (Mike) Balado called and said they were interested," Wiseman said. "He's 6-4, athletic and gets the ball to the rim any time he wants to. He's working on tightening his handles and making jump shots. It's coming, he just needs to be more consistent."
