Sun Devil Basketball Adds Premier SG Dort To Recruiting Class

Bobby Hurley has proven he can get talent to come to Tempe. In his first two classes, five of his eight commitments were four star commitments.

He’s two-for-two in the Sun Devils’ 2018 class in the span of five days with Helsinki (Finland) shooting guard Elias Valtonen and Luguentz Dort, who committed on Wednesday.

Dort, who comes from the Athlete Institute in Toronto, is a 6-foot-4 “powerfully built guard” according to Scout’s Evan Daniels.

Dort is considered a four-star recruit according to 247Sports and a five-star recruit according to ESPN. He is the 35th overall player in the 2018 class and the #4 shooting guard in the class. He is the third-rated Sun Devil commit in the 2000s, behind James Harden and Jahii Carson.

Dort chose the Sun Devils over Baylor and Oregon and held offers Connecticut, Florida, Indiana, Louisville, Miami, Michigan State, Missouri, N.C. State, Pittsburgh, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, UNLV, Washington and West Virginia.

The first two years of Hurley-led Sun Devils had plenty of talent but lacked sized. While his 2018 class consists of two shooting guards, they are adding some size to the roster between Valtonen and Dort.
