2021 point guard Madison Durr of Pace Academy (GA) has been busy in the month of September.
The 6-5 point guard has been to Georgia, Middle Tennessee State and Elon for unofficials so far, and isn’t quite done yet.
“I might go to Texas A&M and Tulane but I haven’t scheduled those yet,” he said.”I might go by Georgia State because it’s up the street from the house for an unofficial.”
Middle Tennessee, one of his most recent unofficial visits, went very well. He went up to Murfreesboro, Tennessee to watch the Blue Raiders take on Duke and really enjoyed the environment around campus.
“I liked the layout, the nice facilities and I really enjoyed the coaching staff,” he said. “It was a family friendly atmosphere at Middle Tennessee.”
Elon, North Alabama and UAB have offered so far with interest coming from Georgia, Middle Tennessee State, Texas A&M and more.
Clemson, Alabama, Tulane, Missouri, North Alabama, UAB, Gardner-Webb, Princeton, Cincinnati, Georgia State, Georgia, Georgia Tech and Iowa State, among others have been at Pace to watch their open gyms, so expect his recruitment to continue to pick up as more programs get a look at him and his improving game.
“I’m a two way player, I have a great mentality and I’m not afraid,” he explained of what coaches like about his game. “My court vision is there, I’m versatile–I can switch on the one through three, possibly the four depending on the size.”
With the possibility of more visits, and the chance more schools get involved, Durr is keeping his options open and maintains that his recruitment is wide open. He plans to play out his high school season and the AAU period before he starts making any decisions on what school he wants to attend. He does have an idea of what he is looking for in a program and it’s not strictly sports related.
“Just the best fit for me academically and athletically. I am committing to a school academically also, not just to play sports,” he said. “I’m also looking for a place that will help me develop. I feel like the place with the best development and academics will help set me apart.”
In the meantime, Durr plans to keep working on his game to become the best version of himself before college. His ball handling is a point of emphasis this year, as well as, finishing around the rim.
