No 5 Sr Trevon Duval Transferring To IMG Academy

Duke Gets No 5 Sr Trevon Duval

ESPN No 5 ranked high school senior Trevon Duval is transferring from Advanced Prep International (Dallas) to IMG Academy in Bradenton, FL.

 

Duval is the latest top player to bolt API after a June Sports Illustrated story reported that the NCAA will no longer honor classes from the school.

 

No. 20 Sr Billy Preston also withdrew from API back in June and transferred to Oak Hill Academy (VA).

 

“I think people understand why I left that situation,” Duval told Zagsblog in August on why he left Advanced Prep. “Because the academics and everything wasn’t really totally stable there. I’m trying to go somewhere and have a stable education.”

 

Now Duval had made his decision and is heading to IMG.

 

The 6-3 floor general, the top point guard in the 2017 Class, averaged 15.9 points a game for St. Benedict’s (Newark, NJ) as a sophomore the previous season, leading the team to the Prep A title.

 

Duval then transferred to API where he played his junior season alongside top recruits Terrance Ferguson (Australia NBL) and Preston.

 

He had a great spring and summer on the Under Armour circuit this season, averaging 15.9 points, 3.9 rebounds, 4.9 assists, and 2 steals a game for WE R1.

 

Duval also poured in 25 points with 7 assists to lead Team Drive past Team Clutch 140-136 in OT at August’s Under Armour Elite 24 showcase in Brooklyn.

 

Oklahoma Rivals loves the athletic Duval’s game.

 

“The Dallas star is almost unstoppable off-the-dribble, as he can break down a defense and penetrate the lane at will,” the analysis reads. “[He] possesses the explosion for ferocious dunks at the rim as well.”
