Paul IV Catholic point guard Jeremy Roach is currently the top player at his position in the 2020 class.

Unfortunately for Roach, he won't be back on the hardwood for some time.

Roach is recovering from a November torn ACL, which cost him virtually all of his junior year.

It hasn't had much of a negative impact on his status as a top recruit though.

Roach has narrowed his list down to four, and are all major programs with pretty recent national titles.

Recruiting powers Duke and Kentucky, North Carolina, and defending national champion Villanova are all heavily involved for the Virginia prospect.

Jeremy Roach recently discussed all four of those programs as he prepares for a decision down the road.

From Rivals:

Duke: “The visit there was really good. I got to see how they work down there and the environment. They have that bond and that family feel down there. The fan base is crazy and it is just a great school.”

Kentucky: “I went there for an exhibition game (last year). The fan base is crazy and it is sold out every game, even for their exhibition games. Their fans are loyal. He (John Calipari) is saying that I am their guy that they want and that they want me and need me there.”

North Carolina: “They are saying that they can help fulfill my dreams and help me get to the NBA and that it is the best way for me to go.”

Villanova: “I visited there earlier this fall. It is a great program. Jay Wright is a great coach that develops his players and he has just told me that he wants to help me fulfill my dreams of getting to the NBA and he just feels like he is the best to do it, both mentally and physically.”

Of the four, he has only used an official visit on Duke so far, but other visits could be coming. He thinks a decision will come sometime this summer.

Rivals has Roach at No. 16 overall and No. 2 among point guards. He is the same ranking at 247's composite list, but is the No. 1 point guard in the country.
