Trevon Duval Looking to Decide in April or Early May
Trevon Duval hopes to make his college decision sometime in April or by early May.
The uncommitted 6-foot-3 point guard from IMG Academy (FL) is still considering five schools in Arizona, Baylor, Duke, Kansas and Seton Hall.
“I really want to decide sometime in April,” Duval told Rivals.com at the McDonald’s All-American Game in Chicago. “It might go into early May but I’d really like to get it done in April. I feel as if the visits really help separate certain schools from the others but it’s also just seeing how the teams are set and if players go.”
Duval broke down all five schools with Rivals.
Seton Hall: “The visit was great actually. I’ve been to their campus a couple times, I’ve seen it but to visit during the Big East tournament was really special just to see how that all goes. Plus they get to play in the Garden so that was special.”
Duke: “Their fan atmosphere for games was definitely crazy. They cheered my name during the game and asked me to come sit with them so their fans are really into it. Gary Trent Jr. and Wendell Carter are both in my ear. You know I haven’t heard anything but Duke from them since I’ve been here so they’re recruiting pretty hard.”
Kansas: “Billy Preston is recruiting me too. He’s telling me they need a point guard so everyone’s doing a little bit of recruiting. I’m going to wait to see what Devonte Graham does and a few other people before I make any kind of decision.”
Arizona: “The coaching staff says they need a point guard in this class. They need someone who can play with DeAndre Ayton and if Allonzo Trier comes back someone to get him the ball. They’re just telling me I can really be the one to help their team out.”
Baylor: “My old teammate, Mark Vital, has really been in my ear just talking to me about the team and picking my brain to see what I like in a school and he said, ‘Baylor’s the perfect place for you.’ ”
