Top prospect Marvin Bagley chooses Duke, wants to play this season

Marvin Bagley posts

Bagley's announcement means the NCAA granted his request to reclassify to the Class of 2017, which also makes him eligible for the 2018 National Basketball Association draft.

Bagley also visited Southern California and UCLA, who were also in contention for the top prospect.

In any case, at least until the NCAA Tournament, the Wildcats won't have to play against Bagley, who had also considered USC and UCLA after playing last season at Sierra Canyon in Chatsworth, Calif.

He said since Duke offered him a scholarship as a ninth grader, he had been interested in the school.

"I had a good feeling there", Bagley said. "You have to be special to go to a place like that".

Trump's promises to be tougher than previous presidents on trade, his administration has proceeded with high levels of caution. The results of an investigation - should one occur - could result in tariffs and trade restrictions with China .

35 like Kevin Durant, Bagley's game has clearly taken a page from the reigning NBA Finals most valuable player.

Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski has the rare ability to recruit premier talent and coach that talent up to its full potential.

Over 20 games during spring and summer, Bagley averaged 25.5 points, 14.7 rebounds, 3.0 blocks and 1.o steals per game. His father, Marvin Bagley Jr., was a sports star at Durham High School, and the player's grandmother still lives there.

That class now ranks No. 1 in the country.

Whether the Suns have the chance to earn the top selection is left to their win total and the lottery odds, but armed with their own upcoming picks and selections via the Miami Heat in 2018 and 2021, there is a strong likelihood Phoenix drafts in the top-10 with the assets to move even higher if they so choose. Missouri's Michael Porter Jr., Arizona's DeAndre Ayton and worldwide stat Luka Doncic are also expected to contender for that spot.
