Class of 2018 point guard Devon Dotson has a slew of offers from Kansas, to North Carolina to Louisville, Florida, USC, and Villanova. He also has an offer from Arizona Basketball head coach Sean Miller.
Last in our Pangos All-American Camp series, but definitively not least, we present to you an east coast point guard out of Charlotte North Caroline, Arizona Basketball target Devon Dotson. Along with Eric Ayala, Dotson traveled all the way from Connecticut to California for the three-day camp put on by Coach Dingos Trigonis every year.
The Pangos Camp brings together some of the most sought after and up and coming basketball players in the nation to learn and compete against each other. Dotson did not disappoint, he came and he showed why so many schools would like this young athlete to join their program.

Dotson, 6-foot-2 and 195 pounds, ranks No. 3 in the state of Connecticut overall, and the two recruits that flank him on that list have already committed to North Carolina; PG Coby White and SF Rechon Black.
Dotson, currently ranked a four-star recruit is also ranked the No. 7 point guard in the Nation behind Arizona Commit Brandon Williams.
CBS 247Sports crystal ball is predicting Kansas will be Dotson’s choice in the end, with Florida coming in as a close second. But as history has shown, you can never count out Sean Miller and Arizona. And even though back in August 2016, Dotson told CBS Sports writer Jerry Meyer that the five schools (including Kansas, North Caroline, NC State, Wake Forest, and Texas) were recruiting him the hardest, the circumstances may have changed.
Coach Miller told Dotson his style fits in Arizona, and that’s what he likes about Arizona, “Their playing style, they like to get it up and down the court.” Wondering if he is planning on a visit, “I will probably take my visit in the fall,” said Dotson.
Devon told us a lot more in our one-on-one interview after the final Top 25 game:
Highlights from Dotson’s AAU team, Team Charlotte:
Dotson is not an overly extroverted type of guy, but he is vocal on the court and wants to get better in that area. He exudes a quiet confidence and seems to make friends easily. You could tell by watching him on the bench with his fellow star teammates (the Top 25 in the camp), that he is easy going, and take it from us he is humble and a really great guy to talk too. We wish Devon well in his future and want to thank him for taking the time to talk to us. Bear Down Devon!
