Blue-chip high school senior point guard Devon Dotson could be close to announcing his college choice following last weekend’s visit to Maryland.
“Pretty soon, like in a week or so,” Dotson’s dad, Dana, told Rivals.com, referring to his son’s likely decision date.
Dotson, 6-foot-1, 180 pounds from Providence Day High in Charlotte, N.C., officially has a final four of Kansas, Maryland, Florida and Clemson.
However, Rivals.com’s Corey Evans on Monday reported that Florida is no longer in the running for the No. 17-ranked Dotson following the Monday commitment of No. 26-ranked Andrew Nembhard, a 6-4 senior point guard from Montverde (Fla.) Academy.
The Gators may land another guard on Tuesday. No. 63-ranked Noah Locke, a 6-2 senior from McDonogh High in Owings Springs, Md., is set to announce for either Florida, Michigan, Ohio State, Providence or Xavier with many recruiting analysts listing Florida as the favorite. Florida also is a possible landing spot for former Louisville commit Anfernee Simons, a 6-2 senior point guard at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., who is ranked No. 16 nationally. Simons told D1vision.com he’s heard from coaches from 24 schools since decommitting from Louisville last week. The list does not include Kansas.
Aaron Wiggins, a Team Charlotte AAU teammate of Dotson, has committed to Maryland and was on campus for Dotson’s official visit over the weekend. Wiggins is a 6-6 senior small forward from Wesleyan Christian Academy in High Point, N.C., ranked No. 42 in the class of 2018 by Rivals.com.
