SPARTANBURG, S.C. — The Marvin Bagley news has been aplenty this week, with buzz that the No. 1 recruit in the class of 2018 might reclassify and play college basketball this season, new visit plans, and a few changes on his 247Sports Crystal Ball page.
247Sports analyst Andrew Slater switched his prediction for Bagley to Duke on Friday, and the Blue Devils now hold a plurality of the picks on the player’s Crystal Ball page.
Bagley told reporters at the Nike Peach Jam earlier in the week that he’s planning official visits to Duke, Arizona and Southern Cal in the near future. The trip to Durham will come after this week’s games.
CBS Sports national reporter Gary Parrish reported Friday that Bagley is mulling a late move to the 2017 class that would allow him to play college basketball this coming season. Such a move would likely rule out Kentucky.
247Sports national analyst Jerry Meyer picked USC for Bagley on Thursday.
