The class of 2006 established itself early as big man class. But after a strong April, several point guards are making a good argument for their position. One of those players is Trevon Hughes, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound floor general from St. John High School in Delafield, Wisc.
Hughes was one of the bright spots in the Juniors-to-be division last week at the Spiece Run N Slam in Fort Wayne, Ind. He was a key member of Fox Valley Skillz’ un to the quarter-finals and was named to the all-tournament team.
Hughes does a fine job of running an offense by finding his teammates, particularly the big men inside. As a defender, Hughes shines. Like most high-major players, he knows what his strengths and weaknesses are.
“The point guard is the leader and I like to be the vocal one out there on the court,” Hughes said. “I just feel natural at that spot.
“I need to improve my jump shot, that’s the one thing I really need to improve on. off the ball defense needs to improve as well and involving more of my teammates on the offensive side, too.”
Hughes’ hometown of Delafield is less than an hour’s drive to the two in-state powers Marquette and Wisconsin but that doesn’t mean he’s a total lock to stay home. Several other schools are pursuing him.
“I got a lot of schools involved right now but the ones that are heavily involved right now are Wake Forest, Iowa, Wisconsin, Maryland, Maryland, North Carolina and Cincinnati,” Hughes said. “I get a lot of letters. Maryland came to my school. Marquette and Wisconsin always come to my campus.”
Hughes will play at the prestigious ABCD camp in July and play the remainder of the summer with the Fox Valley Skillz AAU program. We will keep our eye on him this summer and keep you updated on his recruitment.
