The top-ranked recruit that hasn’t committed in the 2018 PrepHoopsNC class, Devon Dotson all but eliminated Florida from consideration tonight. The Gators received a commitment from 6-foot-3 Montverde Academy (Fla.) point guard Andrew Nembhard. This puts the Gators out of contention for Dotson’s services for next season.
Clemson, UCLA, Maryland (visited this weekend) and Kansas remain for the Team Charlotte and Providence Day floor general. All signs seem to be pointing to Kansas as to where Dotson may end up and playing alongside Zion Williamson, who Dotson teamed up with in Las Vegas this summer, visited Kansas this past weekend. His Team Charlotte teammate Aaron Wiggins committed to Maryland earlier this season and the Terrapins are still considered as a possible destination. Mark Turgeon from Maryland visited Devon Dotson on September 26 at his school. UCLA is in need of a point guard and came into the situation after offering late. UCLA’s Steve Alford visited Dotson on September 12. Clemson could still be a dark horse in this as Zion Williamson is considering staying at home and has said he would be open to playing with Dotson. Dotson would be a game changer for the Clemson program and would be the highest ranked recruit to ever play for the Tigers. Clemson head coach Brad Brownell came to see Dotson on September 26. Dotson unofficially visited Clemson earlier this month and has one more official visit remaining before he makes his choice if he decides to take it.
Dotson is a pure point guard that can score the basketball in a variety of ways. He has a solid basketball frame and does not get pushed around when he gets into the lane. He is as tough as they come. He is a winner and knows what it takes to get the job done. He helped Team Charlotte to the Under Armor title two years ago and he helped Providence Day capture the NCISAA 3-A state title in 2016.
