The long and winding recruitment of Class of 2017 point guard Trevon Duval appears to be winding down, with an announcement expected soon. “Of course I still have my decision to get out of the way and I should be making that pretty soon,” Duval wrote in his latest USA Today blog. “I won’t lie I just want to get this thing over with. “At this point I don’t even really care about how I let everyone know, but my dad keeps telling me that it should be memorable and something that no one has ever done.“Basically it’ll be remembered and the way I announce should reflect me as a person and everything that I’ve been through to this point. “This is such a big decision!” The NCAA late signing period ends May 17. The 6-foot-3 Duval lists Arizona, Baylor, Duke, Kansas and Seton Hall, with Duke now perceived as the favorite. He recently visited the campus on the same day that junior Grayson Allen announced he would return for his senior season.
Duke is hoping for a loaded backcourt next year of Duval, Allen, Gary Trent Jr. and Frank Jackson. Duval is projected as the No. 11 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft by DraftExpress.com.
