De’Aaron Fox is a five-star guard in the 2016 college basketball recruiting class. He is one of the top recruits in the nation and has the ability to help change the future of whoever he ends up playing for during his college career.
Looking ahead at the upcoming 2015-16 college basketball season, Fox has announced four official school visits.
Fox will open up his visits with a Sept. 8 visit to LSU and will then visit Louisville, Kansas and Kentucky in that order. All four of those schools are intriguing potential fits, although LSU is the most surprising on the list.
LSU is trying to get their basketball program rebuilt and back on track and Fox would be a huge step towards that goal.
During his junior season last year at Cypress Lakes High School, Fox averaged 23.8 points, 6.1 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.7 steals and 1.5 blocks per game. Those numbers show just how valuable Fox is capable of being in the future and is more than capable of becoming a number one scorer for his next team.
If Fox wants to be the best player that he can be at the next level, he will need to focus on bulking up. Fox is not even close to being the size that he will need to be in order to finish in the paint against college big men.
All of that being said, it will be very interesting to see who Fox ends up committing to. His list of four visits right now all offer him excellent chances to succeed at the college level. Picking the right school is key for him moving ahead into his future, but his success will depend on whether or not he allows the coaches to mold his game.
Expect to hear plenty more about Fox in the future and keep an eye on how these visits go and for an updated list throughout the season.
