Trevon Duval to Take Third Official Visit to Arizona
As expected, Trevon Duval will take his third official visit to Arizona this weekend for the UCLA game.
No. 4 Arizona hosts No. 5 UCLA in a nationally-televised game Saturday night (8:15 ET, ESPN).
The 6-foot-3 point guard has already taken officials to Kansas and Duke. He is also expected to visit Seton Hall and Baylor.
Arizona already has the No. 3-ranked recruiting class in 2017, per Scout.com, highlighted by DeAndre Ayton, the projected No. 1 pick in 2018 per DraftExpress.com.
Arizona freshman point guard Kobi Simmons and sophomore shooting guard Allonzo Trier are projected as second-round picks by DraftExpress.com in 2017.
Wherever he lands, Duval could only be on campus for a year, since he’s the projected No. 6 pick in 2018 by DraftExpress.com. So he views it as a business decision.
“I feel a lot of my decisions from now on are business decisions, just with my image and everything that ties into that,” he said recently. “If I do end up only going one year, then I better make a difference.”
