Trevon Duval is one of the best prospects in the NCAA and is likely to be drafted first overall in the 2018 NBA Draft. He was born on August 3, 1998, in Hockessin Delaware, he went to IMG Academy in high school, then got a scholarship to Duke, one of the best colleges in the world. People say he has unlimited potential. He was a McDonald’s All American. This is when you bring players from across the country to play in one game. It is basically a high school basketball game and NBA and NCAA scouts are there. He was invited to this event because of his passing and scoring ability. He needs to work on his shooting consistency a bit but that’s pretty much the only thing he can’t do. This is a major downside for him since it is a shooter’s league. If a player can’t shoot it would be hard for him to be successful.
Michael Porter Jr.
Michael Porter Jr. is another of the NCAA’s best prospects. He is going to Missouri College for his lone year. Most likely, he will be drafted 2nd overall because of his shooting skill. He can drive and dunk really well also but his main skill is shooting. He may not be the best dribbler, but his scoring ability is on a whole new level. He averaged 20 points per game and 10 rebounds per game in high school. These are very good stats especially because he played in a very competitive conference.
Luka Doncic is very good at shooting and has great range, so he needs to be guarded closely even beyond the 3-point line. He can get to the basket but he doesn’t drive much–when he does though, he is very successful at it. He is my prediction for third draft pick overall rather than first pick because some are worried that he wouldn’t be able to shoot at the NBA level because he doesn’t really shoot that deep often and in Europe the three point line is closer than in the NBA. He plays overseas so he can go back after being drafted. People say Luka Doncic can be the next Stephen Curry. If he does the right training he can be one of the best ever.
