Five-star point guard Trevon Duval announced his top five in a tweet Tuesday night, and Maryland, which was heavily interested in Duval, is out of the mix.

Instead, his list includes Duke, Kansas, Arizona, Baylor and Seton Hall.

Duval is the No. 5 player in the Class of 2017 and the No. 1 point guard, per the 247Sports Composite. The Delaware native is playing his senior season at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla.

Maryland had real interest in Duval, but it seemed like that waned in recent weeks. The Terps have had success on the recruiting trail recently, though, securing both commitments and signatures from four-star center Bruno Fernando and guard Darryl Morsell.

Those two actually fill up the Terps’ scholarship chart, as Maryland only has two seniors on its current roster. Should someone declare for the NBA Draft (read: Melo Trimble), then another spot would open up, but it’ll be a long while before Mark Turgeon can actually land another prospect.
