Class of 2018 point guard Devon Dotson is off to a fantastic start this spring as he runs with Team Charlotte in the Under Armour Association.
The 6-foot-1 guard is currently regarded as a four-star prospect and the No. 68 overall player in the Scout.com Class of 2018 national rankings, but Dotson has exceeded expectations so far.
NC State has been actively recruiting Dotson since new head coach Kevin Keatts took over as they watched Dotson play multiple times in Indianapolis.
"NC State has reached out. They were at my games," Dotson said.
So far, Dotson has started to build a relationship with head coach Kevin Keatts on the phone as the two spoke during the week between live periods.
"They were just saying that they're looking to move in a different direction. Change things up in the program," Dotson said of NC State. "And they're looking for a dynamic point guard who can come in and run the show."
This spring, Dotson has been hearing from plenty of programs as Arizona, Florida, Florida State, Kansas, Maryland, Ohio State, USC and Villanova have been the other programs most actively involved. Dotson is just letting the calls come in right now as he doesn't have any visits planned in the future.
Dotson has talked about cutting his list down a bit but that decision will come when the time is right.
"I wanted to see how this spring goes. I mean, I think I'll probably cut it down after the live period. I have to talk to my family and see how everything is," Dotson said.
Through two UAA sessions, Dotson is fifth in scoring (18.6 points per game) and third in assists (3.6 per game) while shooting 51 percent from the field and also pulling down 5.1 rebounds per game.
"So far I think I've played pretty well. Just leading the team and just putting the guys in the right spots and facilitating," Dotson said. "I've seen a couple traps, I've seen some double teams. But I'm just looking to play my game and make plays for others and myself."
Dotson and Team Charlotte are currently 4-4 in the UAA as they play Memorial Day weekend in Los Angeles.
