Marvin Bagley III was poised to be in the running to be the top pick in 2019 along with Zion Williamson and R.J. Barrett, but he opted instead to reclassify in order to play in college basketball this season.
Bagley is a very skilled scorer that is a dynamo in transition, he is a ball hawk on the glass, and he also is a very good shot blocker. He has since decided to commit to Duke, and Bagley is a very talented basketball player that could end up being the number one overall pick in 2018.
