Duke target Trevor Keels, a high school teammate of incoming point guard Jeremy Roach, is down to three schools: Duke, Virginia and Villanova.

A 6-5 guard out of Fairfax Virginia’s Paul VI Catholic High School, Keels is generally seen as the #1 shooting guard in the class of 2021. He’s had a rapid rise in the high school ranks as he blew up, in the modern parlance, fairly recently.

He’s had nice things to say about all three schools and coaches, obviously, but hasn’t really tipped his hand much if at all.

We went over to the Crystal Ball to see where the sentiment stood but it looks like only John Watson has weighed in. We respect John a lot, but the system works by averaging opinions.

So looks like for now, we just have to wait.

One of the things to keep in mind is that his relationship with Roach could be key. Jim Spanarkel and Mike O’Koren were high school teammates but not especially close (O’Koren ended up at UNC). Gerald Henderson and Wayne Ellington were also high school teammates but also chose Duke and UNC.

There are a lot of variables here so again, we’ll just have to wait and see how it develops.
