Duval has made the transitioned that I alluded to back in 2014 of becoming a full-time point guard. He’s getting downhill off of the bounce seemingly at will. Duval also showed the ability to make the open jumper when need be.

Duval is now listed at 6-3, which is up 2″ from his previous listing of 6-1. What was most impressive about Duval’s game this weekend was his lightning quick ball handling that allowed him to slither between defenders and make plays in the lane. He was equally impressive going either direction and displayed crossover moves that were rare even in this setting. He finished the camp scoring 13.3 points per game, including a camp high 30 points in game. However, his ability to read the help defense and set up his teammates with the dish is what could possibly make him the best point guard in the class. He finished averaging a camp high 4.7 assists per game in game play.

Duval is such a gifted scorer at the off guard position. He attacks the lane well even in this elite setting. He didn’t showcase the jump shot that he shoots so well in this eval. Size not withstanding Duval is a premier scorer in the class nationally.

Duval played off the ball in this setting as is consistent with some of previous evaluations. He is beginning to fill out physically, which gives him added physical ability to play on the wing. He can score the ball and is very crafty when it comes to finding ways to get his shot. He has an explosive first step, yet he showed the willingness to hit the open player when the double team came.

Duval can flat out score the basketball. Right now, he might be the third best scoring guard in the class behind Troy Brown (NV) and DJ Harvey (MD). He shoots the 3-pointer, midrange and finishes at the rim. In that way, Duval reminds me of a young Louis Williams as a smaller scoring guard. Duval is giving up a couple of inches to Williams though.

Duval showed bounce and the ability to make shots from the outside. In a gym full of his classmates, Duval shined as a possible 5-star guard in the class. He’s an elite athlete at the position making plays off of the dribble at the rim. Like Kwe Parker (NC-16), Duval is a smaller combo guard if not a primary point guard.

Duval is playing off the ball this season next to All-American Isaiah Briscoe (2015). Duval is both a penetrator and a slasher off of the bounce. He didn’t shoot it from the outside here preferring instead to attack the lane to score it. He finished well in traffic against CIA Bounce. If he plays the PG, he’s a 5-star prospect.

Duval is a guard with a pure shot. He shoots it at a high percentage and he has plenty of juice off the dribble. He finished around the rim today with acrobatic finishes & he did it on a big time stage. He will be exciting to track in the future.
