Five-star guard Trevor Keels (Trevor Keels) promised to participate in the Duke University basketball game Friday afternoon, which gave the Blue Devils a third-place five-star prospect in the 2021 season.
The Keeling team chose coach Mike Krzyzewski’s course on the final roster, which also included Virginia, Villanova and Kentucky.
“I have a very good relationship with Coach K,” Kiers told ESPN. “In the process, he has always been the same. The straight guy. He told me what I need to listen to. He told me to change my body. I did it, and now I’m lighter and more explosive.
“My game is not finished yet. I believe Coach K and Duke can help me achieve my goal of playing in the NBA. I am not only watching the NBA. My focus is on winning the Duke team and college basketball games.”
Keels comes from Paul VI High School in Northern Virginia. He is 6-foot-5 and shooting guard. He is ranked 19th in the ESPN 100 in 2021 and fourth in the United States. He played on the grassroots tour with Team Takeover, averaging 10.9 points per game in the spring and summer of 2019. During the high school season, the Dragon Bones scored several major points, averaging 25 points in two games at the NIBC Invitational in January.
The Dragon Bones joined the frontcourt players Paolo Banchero (3rd place) and AJ Griffin (14th place), becoming Duke’s 2021 five-star players.
Kils said: “Paolo Banchero has been recruiting me since he promised.” “He may be a rookie in the lottery, but he cares more about winning. That’s my purpose.”
When Paul VI’s teammate, point guard, point guard Jeremy Roach (Jeremy Roach) enters Durham (Derham), Kells will connect with him. Roach started 18 games this season as a freshman.
“It’s really big,” Kiers said of Roach when he was at Duke University. “I played with him for four years and we were successful. He was a competitor. I learned from him at Paul VI. We had a lot of conversations about Duke University. He was honest about everything. I trust him in court whether on the court or off the court.”
Keels is a highly competitive player with incredible basketball instincts, who brought Duke an external direct barrier that maintains a chemical reaction with Roach. Keels is physically ready for college, and his strength allows him to end through contact and free the defender from the dribble. He is good at putting pressure on the defense through steady jump shots. He has almost no wasted moves in the offense, which makes him efficient and efficient. He can hit the three-point line in transition, and in the half of the game, Kiers is more than just a shooter; he is a scorer who knows how to read him and uses an aspherical screen or scores purposefully. .
Keel will replace DJ Steward, who left for the NBA draft on Thursday after playing for the Blue Devils for a season. Krzyzewski also lost the former five-star player Jalen Johnson before the end of the season, and scorer Matthew Hurt was listed in the top 50 of the NBA Draft and may leave. Jordan Goldwire, Jaemyn Brakefield and Patrick Tape all entered the transfer portal.
