Virginia’s #2 ranked player, Trevor Keels

One of the top shooting guards in the 2021 class has landed squarely on the radar of West Virginia basketball Head Coach Bob Huggins.  Trevor Keels, the 6’5 210 pound guard from Fairfax, Virginia, is the #32 overall ranked prospect in the country in the class and the #2 ranked prospect in the state of Virginia.

Keels, who plays for Paul VI Catholic High School in Fairfax, was named to the USA Today All-USA Virginia second team, MaxPreps Boys Basketball Sophomore All-American first team, Washington Post All-Met first team and was Washington Catholic Athletic Conference’s Co-Player of the Year and All-WCAC first team in 2019.

Keels led his team to a 22-6 record and into the WCAC semifinals while averaging 15.6 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game as a Sophomore.  In addition, Keels was recently honored by being named as one of the 18 finalists for the USA Basketball under 16 national team.

Bob Huggins offered Keels a scholarship after watching him play over the weekend.  Keels holds other offers from Cincinnati, Florida, Oklahoma State, Seton Hall, South Carolina, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.  Keels just finished his Sophomore year and will undoubtedly receive several more major offers in the next two years.

Keels is a versatile scorer who can shoot and get to the rim in score.  He’s also an improving passer and defensive player, and with two more years in high school he will grow into a complete by the time he enters college.
