Armando Bacot Duke Offer

Armando Bacot, a 6-foot-10 power forward from Trinity Episcopal (VA) School talked with Corey Evans of Rivals about the five schools working the hardest for him. Bacot listed Oklahoma State, Virginia Tech, VCU, North Carolina, and Duke as he broke down each school with Rivals.

Duke-“I just know if I were to go to Duke and the players that they have been recruiting, like me, Joey [Baker] and Vernon [Carey], I just know we could be a very versatile lineup like this year with them having Marvin Bagley and Wendell Carter. They’re just showing that they can play three bigs at the same time, but also go small. I know that they would have versatile lineups, and I can show all that I can do.”

Virginia Tech-“I just love coach Buzz Williams and his message. I can tell that he cares about me off the court. Coach [Christian] Webster has been with me from the start. They have a plan for me and think that I can be a one-and-done. They have been throwing it all at me.”

VCU-“They love me down there. Every time I go down there, people ask me for pictures and autographs. I can just tell that they really want me. I just know if I were to go there I would have the ball from the jump, and it would be my city and my team.”

North Carolina-“I just like their inside-out game. They’re going to go inside first, and that is definitely a plus. I just feel like I could go in there early and start and make an impact on the team.”

Oklahoma State-“They are just a program that thinks that I can be a one-and-done. They have been telling me that they don’t really have any back-to-the-basket bigs that they can throw the ball into, and that I could help change the culture down there.”

According to 247Sports, Bacot is ranked as the No. 17 overall player in the Class of 2019 and the No. 4 center. Bacot has recently taken unofficial visits to Virginia Tech (Sept. 29th), Villanova (Sept. 30th), Providence (Oct. 6th), Georgetown (Oct. 13th), Duke (Oct. 20th), and VCU (Nov. 17th),

Bacot is coming off a 34 points, 9 rebounds, and 3 blocks performance against Trinity Christian (NC) Academy at the Holiday Hoopsgiving Tournament in Atlanta, Georgia.
