“They built a bond. That's something I felt comfortable with.” -- Allonzo Trier“He relentlessly recruited me the whole time,” Trier said. “I talked to him more than any college coach. We talked numerous times. We have a great relationship and it was better than with any of the other schools.” Trier is coming off a strong spring and summer. In five games at the Nike Peach Jam, Trier scored 30.8 points a game. He averaged eight more points a game than any other participant at Peach Jame. Trier shot 40-percent from three at the event. Trier is ranked No. 15 overall and as the No. 2 shooting guard in the 2015 class. Arizona now has three highly touted prospects in the 2015 class. Trier joins five-star prospects Justin Simon and Ray Smith to make up Arizona’s current three-man class.
Trier commits to Arizona
Allonzo Trier found his match on Sunday. Trier, an elite level scorer in the 2015 class, committed to Sean Miller and Arizona, while on an official visit. Trier informed Scout.com of the news. “This visit was important,” Trier told Scout.com. “I've been here for a day now and it's a place that I really wanted to be. The visit has been great and I just thought it was time to pull the trigger.” Miller and assistant Joe Pasternack were key parts of Trier’s decision. Miller was an assistant coach for the USA Men’s U18 National Team, which Trier played on. Trier said that helped strengthen their relationship. “It's great,” he said of his relationship with Miller. “Even from a non-basketball standpoint it's great. He's a great guy. He talked about everything and being coached by him at USA was great. I got to build a bond with him there.” “Coach Miller and coach Pasternack, they did a great job of coming at me and getting to know my family,” Trier said. “They built a bond. That's something I felt comfortable with.” Trier said Pasternack picked up his interest with him following EYBL Sacramento and since he has been the coach that has recruited him the hardest.
