College basketball is currently in a dead period in terms of recruiting, but once it ends on Friday, the Duquesne Dukes coaching staff will be busy hosting a trio of players.
Forward Abdou-Halil Barre, guard Tre Clark, and forward Matus Hronsky will all be making official visits this weekend to Duquesne.
Duquesne basketball on Pittsburgh Sports Now is sponsored by The Summit Academy: setting young men on the path to a better future.
Halil Barre is a 6-foot-9, 225-pound forward from Scotland Campus (Pennsylvania) who plays for NY Renassance that is considered a very long, strong, and physical defensive force.
NYCHoops.Net recently had this to say about Halil-Barre:
“The NYC native has been a dependable presence on the backboards and a high-level interior, above the rim finisher. He’s become the next intriguing big out of Scotland. He brings unique upside as a proficient scorer with a dependable 12-15 foot jumper which drags rim protectors away from the paint. Halil Barre’s big, commanding presence provides a stabilizing force for Scotland Campus.”
Barre holds offers from Duquesne, Siena, LSU, South Florida, Youngstown State, Bryant and Illinois, but PSN is told that Duquesne “leads” for his services. He would provide the Dukes’ front court with some much needed size and a physical, defensive presence.
Barre is current playing at the Prep National Tournament in Connecticut.
Tre Clark is a player Duquesne fans might remember, as he is a former member of the VCU program. After leaving VCU last February, Clark enrolled at Northwest Florida State to play last season and won the NJCAA D1 National Championship. At the time of his departure from VCU, Clark was averaging 5.9 points per game and logged an incredible team-leading 6.2 steals percentage. The 6-foot-3, 175 pounder was averaging 16.1 minutes a game while backing up starting point guard Ace Baldwin.

Matus Hronsky is a 6’8″, 195 pound 3-star forward from Poruba, Slovakia, that currently plays at Wasatch Academy in Mount Pleasant, Utah. Hronsky has the ability to shoot three as well as deliver inside the paint. In terms of playing style, Hronsky reminds coaches of Gibson Jimmerson from St. Louis and Duncan Robinson from the Miami Heat.
