Trevon Hughes is the No. 50 ranked player in the class of 2006, and the outstanding point guard prospect from St. John’s Northwest Military Academy in Dearfield, Wis., already has four high major offers. Those four schools along with two others make the school list of the 6-foot-2, 185-pound floor general.
“I like Iowa, Wake Forest, Wisconsin, Marquette, North Carolina and Georgetown,” said Hughes. “All have offered except for North Carolina and Georgetown. Right now it's early, and I don’t have a leader.
"Coaches from Wake Forest, Wisconsin, Iowa and Georgetown came by the school to see me work out this fall."
Strong academics and the shot at some early playing time are top criteria for Hughes in choosing a school.
"I want to go somewhere that is good for me academically, so I’ll have something to fall back on,” he said. “I don’t have to start as a freshmen, but I want to get some valuable playing time."
After leading his team to a 17-4 record that ended with a disappointing early loss in the playoffs, Hughes, who averaged 21 points, 10 assists and 4 rebounds per game, is focused on improving his own game and achieving a state championship with his team.
"I’m working hard on my jumper,” he said. “I also need to get better at my defense off the ball.
"We return four starters and have a couple new players, so we should be good this year. My goal is to go undefeated and win state this year."
