Henry Dugat, a 6-foot, 160-pound point guard from Dayton (Texas) High School, was driving home from the Texas A&M team basketball camp on Monday afternoon when he told RivalsHoops.com that he knows he’ll attend an in-state school. Does that mean he’s considering the Aggies?
Dugat and six of his high school teammates were in College Station for a team camp and he said he enjoyed his time there, competing against some of the top players from the Lone Star State. Even though Dugat visited the Big 12 program, he said is not considering them for his future school.
“I’m probably down to Baylor and Texas,” Dugat said. “Those are the two I’m really looking at right now. I haven‘t seen Texas yet so right now I‘m not sure.”
Dugat, who is rated as the No. 61 player in the class of 2005 by Rivals.com, has made an unofficial visit to Baylor and he will possibly make a trip to Austin and see more of the Longhorns program. Each program has it’s benefits, he said.
“The coaches just let their players play,” Dugat said. “I know that if I go there, I’ll have a lot of playing time right away and that means a lot.
“Texas has put together a good team with all of the guys they having coming in. Plus, I like their coaches, too. They are good guys.”
He did not allude to a timetable for a decsion but did say he is looking at the positives of each program. Until he visits Texas, Dugat said he wouldn’t be able to decide between the two. Sources say Baylor is the leader at this point.
As one of the top scoring guards in the state of Texas, averaging nearly 29 points as a junior, Dugat said is looking for a school where he can push the ball and play a guard friendly offense with freedom to score. He has displayed that scoring touch so far this AAU season and hopes to continue at events in Las Vegas and Los Angeles with his Houston Select squad.
