Dugan scheduling visits soon

Western Kentucky is one of several potential schools to land an official visit from the 6-foot-11 center.

After a successful July evaluation period, ACB/Bank Hoops center Seth Dugan is ready to schedule his official visits.

"I'd like to take officials in August, into September maybe if it goes that far," Dugan said. "But sooner than later I'd like to.

"A lot of people have been pulling at me ya know, schools and stuff, I haven't really had the chance yet to sit down, look at the list and narrow it down. I'm hoping to do that here soon, sit down in the next week, week and a half, do some research on the Internet and narrow it down."

The 6-foot-11 center holds double-digit Division 1 offers, including Western Kentucky and Xavier, in addition to interest from multiple Big Ten schools.

WKU assistant David Boyden was in attendance for most, if not all of Dugan's games at AAU Nationals during the July 23-27 evaluation period.

But he wasn't the only coach keeping an eye on the Otsego (Mich.) big man.

Assistants from Michigan, Xavier, Iowa and Davidson, among others, watched Dugan in one or more games at the Louisiville (Ky.) tournament.

"It's always nice, whenever you look out and you see a friendly face that you recognize," he said. "Overall pretty good, this tournament, I haven't been finishing like I usually do, which just happens every once in a while.

"But overall throughout July, I feel like I've played pretty well. I've been really working on the three-point game. Hasn't translated over the best in a few games, but I've really been in the gym, getting some shots up. Also footwork, moving laterally better."

The Toppers offered a scholarship after Dugan's solid play at the Adidas Invitational during the July 9-12 eval period.

"Coach Boyden called me, we talked a little bit about the program," the center said. "It's a great school.

"He said they had decided to offer me a scholarship, and with that being a great school, I was happy."

With so many schools interested in him, but only five allotted official visits, some tough calls are coming soon for Dugan.

Early odds look good though for at least Western Kentucky and Xavier to make the big man's list of visits, who already knows what he's looking for in his college destination.

"Academics, it's got to have what I want to study," Dugan said. "Which a lot of schools do have (business.)

"Then overall fit, I can come in and get some playing time, help the team, just somewhere I feel comfortable."

Dugan said there's a "good chance" he signs his National Letter-of-Intent during the NCAA's fall signing period in November.
