The dust has settled, players having decided whether they are headed to the NBA or back to college. Who won? Who lost? Well, Villanova is pretty happy. USC, meanwhile, not be as thrilled.
The 2017 recruiting class is short on point guards, with Trevon Duval leading only eight prospects from the ESPN 60 who are still available.
