Right after the Vegas tournament, I think that would be good time for it and it's the time that I want to get it done if things go right.

Kedric:
Do you still have a scholarship offer on the table from Illinois?

Yes I do, I've talked with them but they're only so many contacts they can have with players each month. I know how much they're interested in me and I'm still interested in their school it's good basketball.

Kedric:
Not that you have a favorite school at this time but do you have a top three you could tell us about?

Trey:
No, not at this time I don't the way I see it I'm still wide open but Illinois is a school I'm looking at.

Kedric:
What are your plans when you're done with school this summer?

Well right now I'm studying for finals I should be done here by sometime next week. I really want to go home but once I get there I plan to play AAU basketball but I have to take care of school first.

Kedric:
While studying for your finals do you take time out to watch any of the NBA playoffs?

Trey:
Actually I haven't I've really put a lot of time into school so I haven't, maybe when I'm done I will but not right now.
