Franklin-Simpson guard provides a recruiting update

Franklin-Simpson guard Tavin Lovan is preparing to participate in the summer AAU circuit

Among the top prospects in the Bluegrass State for the Class of 2017, Tavin Lovan is looking forward to getting back on the hardwood this summer.

The 6-foot-4 guard, who is committed to playing with Team Thad on the Under Armor Association, has been held out of action in recent weeks with a high ankle sprain. With plenty of college coaches roaming the sidelines during the summer camp circuit, Lovan's goal is to put his best game on the floor each time out.

"Just to get better and show everyone in that is watching that I can play with the best their is," he said.

As a junior, Lovan was one of the state's top performers, garnering All-State honors after averaging a double-double at Franklin-Simpson.  He averaged 26.3 points and 11 rebounds per game to help guide his school to a 24-5 overall record.

The three-star prospect currently holds scholarship offers from Eastern Kentucky, Murray State, Northern Kentucky, Toledo, Western Kentucky and Winthrop.

"Even though I haven't played it's still going really well stayed in contact with a lot of coaches," he said of the recruiting process.

WKU was the first to offer the in-state product and he remains a priority target with new Hilltopper head coach Rick Stansbury.

"I haven't talked to him yet but my dad has met him," Lovan explained.  "I've been told I'm still at the top of their recruiting list."
