NBPA: Bacon makes statement
Small forward Dwayne Bacon has been one of the best performers at the NBA Players Association Top 100 Camp. With his unique blend of size, skill, and athleticism he is continuing to open up eyes and has the attention of numerous college coaches. "The spring and summer have gone great," said Bacon. "I feel like I have gotten a lot better with everything. I am learning a lot, and everything is just going well." At 6-foot-6 and nearly 200 pounds, Bacon has a total skill set that makes him one of the highest upside kids in the class, and he continues to work to refine his game. "I've been working on my all-around game," said Bacon. "I have improved my perimeter skills and I just want to be a player who can play any position." Recruiting wise Bacon has pulled in offers from schools like Florida State, Clemson, Louisville, Georgia Tech, Tennessee, South Florida, and a host of others schools. "I'm just taking everything in," said Bacon. "I have a lot of offers, but I am not looking to settle on one college right now. As of now I do know I will take an official visit to USC and Georgetown." While USC is a long way from Bacon's home in Florida, he definitely likes the coaches and thinks the school could be a good fit for him. "I just like the coaching staff and how they play," said Bacon. "I think I could come in and play right away, so I like that situation." Georgetown is already off to a good start in this recruiting class, and Bacon likes that as well as the tradition of the school. "They produce pros so that is big for me," said Bacon of the Hoyas. "I want to go to a place that produces pros because ultimately that is what I want to be." For now Bacon is in no hurry to make a decision and is planning to play out the month of July and seeing all of his options before making a commitment.
