Texas High School Basketball Prospects Have New Schools

Texas has become a breeding ground for exceptional basketball talent, with players like Myles Turner, Julius Randle, and Darren Fox making waves in recent years. This season, two highly touted prospects, Trayvon Duvall and Billy Preston, have made moves to new teams. Duvall, one of the top point guards in the 2017 class, is now playing at IMG Academy in Florida, while Preston, a six-foot-ten-inch power forward, has joined the renowned Oak Hill Academy in Virginia. These players are just a few examples of the talented basketball players emerging from Texas. Former Texas player PJ Washington, a five-star forward who played for USA Basketball this summer, has been at Findlay Prep in Nevada since his sophomore year. Joining him at Findlay Prep are 2017 point guard Chris Giles and 2018 forward Reggie Cheney, both hailing from Texas. Giles, who played a pivotal role in leading Plano West to a state championship two years ago, will now be striving for success at Findlay Prep. The influx of Texas players relocating to prestigious basketball programs showcases the state's growing prominence as a talent hub, and their contributions are highly anticipated in their new teams.
