Trent Is Heading Home

After taking a pair of official visits, Clarence Trent decided it was time to make his decision. The 2009 prospect is headed to the Pac 10.

Clarence Trent is taking his game back to the state of Washington.

After narrowing his list of schools to two, Trent, of Henderson (Nev.) Findlay, picked the Washington Huskies. He gave Lorenzo Romar and his staff a commitment Thursday evening.

"I think it's going to be great," Trent said. "My family is going to be able to come out and see me, they haven't seen me play in a year and a half, so I'm sure they are excited about it. I'm happy to be able to go home an play."

Trent entertained a number of high major schools, but his decision ultimately came down to California and Washington. He took a visit to California the last weekend of August, and Washington this past weekend.

"Basically what I did, I made out a list of my pros and cons between Cal and the University of Washington," Trent said. "I ended up outweighing a lot of them after my visit at Washington and how I got along with the coaches."

"It was how I got along with the coaches," he said when asked what put Washington over the top. "I got along with the coaches and I feel really comfortable around coach Romar."

Trent, who is ranked No. 77 overall, is the third member of the 2009 class to give the Huskies a verbal commitment. He joins three-star prospect C.J. Wilcox and JUCO standout Charles Garica.
