GARDEN GROVE, Calif – The UNC coaching staff tracked Trevon Duval throughout the summer as he established himself as one of the top guards in the class of 2017 – and any other class as well.
According to Duval, all of the UNC coaches have been communicating with him.
“They’ve been in contact with me before camp, during camp, just talking to me, telling me good luck and staying in touch.”
While the coaching staff has been busy extending scholarship offers to the class of 2016, only Jalek Felton has received an offer from the rising junior class. The 6-3 Duval could be next.
When asked about a potential offer Duval noted, “Yeah, he (Roy Williams) says take a visit to see how the campus is and go from there. I don’t know when exactly, but I’m going to take a visit.”
One week after the final live period ended for Duval he was in Southern California for the adidas Nations tournament. Playing on one of the younger U.S. teams, Duval averaged 12.7 points and 4.8 assists per game. In a win over Team Asia Pacific, Duval spearheaded a comeback from 20 points down and got to the basket at will off the dribble.
Last year, Duval led St. Benedict’s to the New Jersey Prep A title while averaging 15.9 points per game. After his season ended, Duval announced that he was transferring and is currently still deciding on what high school to attend for his junior season.
“If I go to a school that can compete for the RISE championship I’ll want to do that,” said Duval. “If I go to a school that can compete for a state championship then I’ll do that.”
Duval will play in the Elite24 game in New York as his last event of the summer.
