Two Emerge With Top 100 Guard

Trevor Releford is certain to take a pair of visits. Will he need more? The Bishop Miege point guard gives the rundown on his recruitment.

Trevor Releford,'s No. 72 prospect in the senior class, completed the second annual Chris Paul Elite Backcourt Academy this weekend. Releford was one of the event's top ball handlers and standouts in 3-on-3 competition.

The 5-foot-11 Shawnee Mission (Kan.) Bishop Miege point guard is working his way through the recruiting process. Releford has help. His brother Travis Releford, is entering his sophomore season at Kansas. He's shared his thoughts about the decision making process and what to expect with his younger sibling.

"When you get to the next level, everybody is going to be good," Trevor said. "If you don't bring it every night then you sit on the bench."

Releford told that he's considering Oklahoma, Alabama, Tennessee and Arizona with two programs in his upper tier.

"I feel like I got to know (the head coaches) real good like Oklahoma and Alabama. The other ones I really haven't gotten a chance to (know them). I'm going to go to Oklahoma the first week and then Alabama."

Releford, who's friend Justin McCay committed to playing football at Oklahoma, has seen the Sooners campus and attended Alabama's elite camp.

He stressed that the relationship with the head coach is going to be a major factor for him going forward. "At the end of the day, that's who's going to be playing me."
