The Marvin Bagley Question

NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. -- As dominant as 2018's No. 1 player Marvin Bagley III was on the court during Friday's action at the Peach Jam, rumors about possible reclassification were the talk of the day. Bagley's father addressed the rumor Friday night - see the latest on that and plenty more from the event.


Marvin Bagley III easily backed up his status as the top player in the class of 2018 at Nike's Peach Jam. It culminated with a dominant 30-point outing on Friday night, but it wasn't Bagley's dominant play that had everybody talking, it was the reports of rumors that he could enroll at a college -- his finalists are Arizona, Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, UCLA and USC -- for the 2017-18 season.
The rumors have actually been around for a while, and discussed them with Bagley's father, Marvin, during the winter. He brushed them off then, and when we caught up with him on Friday night, he kept things short and to the point.
"Ask the guy who started the rumor," Bagley told when asked about his son moving to 2017. "He obviously knows more about it than we do."
So, the rumors are out there and they are being talked about and Bagley's family is saying they've not made any kind of decision.
We have to take a player and his family's word for things, so it's full steam ahead considering Bagley as a 2018 prospect. On top of that, we do know that Bagley has a visit to Duke coming up and that he said at the Peach Jam that Arizona and USC visits will be set up.
