Duquesne Basketball Recruiting

Duquesne Extends Offer to 2023 Wing Alex Bates IV



Recently, the Duquesne basketball staff extended an offer to class-of-2023 wing Alex Bates IV, who plays for United Faith Christian Academy (NC) and VA Premier.

Bates is a 6-foot-5 wing who holds offers from Duquesne, Fairleigh Dickinson, Radford, and others. The sharpshooter has a smooth right-handed stroke from outside and is not afraid to take the ball inside either.

“When you talk about his game though, is such a sneaky prospect at his size,” said Phenom Hoops Report in a scouting report of Bates. “He surprises you with his athleticism and ability to rise up to finish at the rim, but he also does a great job in finding ways to score with his jumper.  He is a skilled prospect with or without the ball and can either step up and be a presence offensively but also be an effective secondary option on the floor.”

Bates, Cam Estevez and Anthony Robinson are the three most recent prospects to pick up Duquesne offers.
