The class of 2006 will be known as a great big men class with the likes of Greg Oden, Derrick Caracter, Curtis Kelly, Darrell Arthur and many others high in the rankings. But there are also a number of solid point guards chasing suit. One of those players is Trevon Hughes, a 6-foot-1 prospect from Delafield, Wisconsin.
Hughes returned to his native Northeast for the ABCD camp and while there, he shined against some of the top floor generals in the pool play. He knows how to run a team and defensively, he’s one of the best in the country. Hughes has even shown that his jump shot is making strides.
“The competition level is so high here,” Hughes said from the ABCD camp. “You get pushed to the next level. This experience is making me a smarter player and making me understand my role as a point guard. I’ve learned how to make the good decisions.”
His decision making is something that Iowa, Marquette, Wake Forest and Wisconsin like in him. Hughes said all of the schools have offered a scholarship while Illinois, Maryland and North Carolina all keep in touch with weekly letters.
“I’m pretty open to all of them,” Hughes said. “They are all great programs but right now, I’m not too worried about it. I’m taking it one day at a time. It’s an honor to have those schools recruiting me.”
Hughes is looking for a place to play right away.
“I just want to know if I can play guard at the school I go to for a long time,” he said. “Plus, the background of the school will be factored in because you always need something to fall back on.”
He’ll take the helm of the Fox Valley Skillz AAU program at the Reebok Big Time tournament in Las Vegas. Hughes is the No. 67 ranked player in the class of 2006 by Rivals.com.
