2017 five-star wing Gary Trent is one of the best shooters in high school basketball and much of that has to do with his work ethic.
“The summer has been great,” Trent said. “I have built bonds with people. players, coaches. I’m making new friends and getting a lot of basketball knowledge.
“The best way you can learn something is through repetition and playing every day is helping me a lot.”
Trent also hopes that a recent move to Findlay Prep will help him improve his game.
“It’s what is best for my future and how to prepare myself in the classroom and the court,” he said.
“The players in the past have done what I am trying to do, so I felt it was best for my family and I.”
Now that Trent has his last year of high school planned, he is looking to make the next step in his recruitment.
“I plan to cut my list down in about a week or two into a top five and go from there,” he said. “I am going to look at which school prepares me for my future and the school that will best help me.”
Arizona is hoping to be one of the schools that makes Trent’s cut.
“Arizona has been consistent,” Trent said. “I recently had a good talk with Coach Miller. He tells me I can come in as a big time scorer that can help the team in many ways.”
Trent admits that Arizona’s pitch is similar to what a lot of schools are telling him at this point, but he doesn’t seem to mind it.
“Recruiting is almost like a broken record, but in a good way,” he said. “This is what I ask for. I want them to watch and recruit me, I just have to keep working.
“I want to take my time. I am going to take all five visits before I decide, but I don’t know which schools are going to make my list.”
