    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Luguentz Dort, the Class of 2018 point guard from the Brookwood Elite AAU program and Calusa (FL) Prep, has named his top six schools.

    The 6-foot-4 Dort listed Oregon, Indiana, Miami, Baylor, Arizona State and Michigan State.

    Dort broke down each school for Corey Evans of

    Baylor: “Scott Drew gave me my first offer. They have been with me for a long time.

    “I really like the way they play with the pick and roll with their guards. I really like their system.”

    Oregon: “They have a really good Canadian connection. They play fast which is something that I really like.”

    Miami: “It is another system that I like with the pick-and-roll. They have a lot of good players that like to play fast.

    Bruce Brown is kind of like me and is doing great over there. I just feel like I have a chance if I go there.”

    Indiana: “I just really like the coaching staff and the way that they are recruiting me right now. I haven’t been there and haven’t watched them play but I have a really good relationship with the coaches.”

    Michigan State: “It is a great program. We have all heard about that. I like the way that they play together. Tom Izzo just knows how to make pros.”

    Arizona State: “Bobby Hurley is one of the great point guards that played the game. I feel like if I were to go there, I would really learn a lot about the point guard position.”

    He added that he plans to sign in the fall: “I will probably commit and sign during the early period in November.”
