Marvin Bagley Ultimate Recruiting Update
Marvin Bagley III is the No. 1 recruit in the 2018 recruiting class & he will be visiting Arizona the first week of August. His top schools are Arizona, Kentucky, Duke, & USC. What's being overlooked is the chance of Bagley going overseas instead.
Bagley’s dad is Lamar Ball Lite and is Really into his son’s recruitment. He will be the one that ultimately makes the decision for his son as to where he's going to go. If he does go overseas it'll be for the money & a shoe deal with Nike.
A lot of people don't know that Marvin Bagley's dad actually works for Nike, so a school like UCLA (Under Armour) pretty much has no chance of getting him unless things change with Dad Bagley Jr. His dad also coaches him on his current team named Nike Phamily(EYBL). He moved from Phoenix because his dad thought that team didn't get enough exposure.
Bagley has not been shy about talking about his interests in going overseas. There have been rumors in the past that he might have some eligibility issues. All of the reclassifying talk is being seen as something that is probably being pushed by Duke & USC, so they'll have a better chance at Bagley knowing that Arizona has no more scholarships.
That's where Denny Talbot comes into the picture. He would be the odd man out if Bagley did somehow reclassify. Denny knows that Arizona would pull his scholarship as he was promised one year and he got one year....not Arizona's fault he got hurt. It would not be the most popular choice, but he understand and would do what's best for the team.
As to what Bagley thinks about Arizona. Watch closely at the 1:48 mark in the video below at how he smiles when she asks about Arizona 👀 Bagley says "I've been to UofA games since 7th grade and that's the type of atmosphere I want to play in" As of now Arizona & Kentucky are the 2 schools in the lead to get Bagley with USC & Duke trying to make a late push. He'll be deciding in October, so it'll be just a few more months till we find out.
