Trier remains "very high" in the Cardinals

Allonzo Trier recently announced he was transferring to Henderson, Nev., Findlay Prep School for this coming season. He also said his recruitment is still "wide open" and the University of Louisville is among the schools still in the mix for the five-star guard.

Five-star guard Allonzo Trier has a lot going on in his basketball world these days.

Ranked as the No. 15 prospect in the Class of 2015 by Scout.com, Trier is currently playing for the USA Basketball U-18 team after being a late addition to the tryout roster and then making the team last weekend in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Trier is switching schools from Rockville, Md., to Henderson, Nev., Findlay Prep School and he's also trying to figure out his recruiting.

"It's still wide open," Trier said. "My list is pretty long. I have a lot of schools that are recruiting me the hardest right now."

Trier, ranked No. 2 among shooting guards in the country, has the University of Louisville among the top schools on his list.

Along with the Cardinals, Trier reeled off the names of Memphis, Arizona, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Oklahoma State, Georgetown, Maryland, Baylor, Connecticut and Kansas as the schools on his list.

"I don't have any kind of time table," he said. "I just want to make the best decision for me. I will talk to my mom about it a lot."

Trier, who was a top target of new U of L assistant Kenny Johnson while he was at Indiana, jumped onto the radar for the Cards when Johnson arrived and also when he had a great showing at an EYBL event in Sacramento, Calif., in April with U of L coach Rick Pitino watching.

"He said I would fit in perfectly," Trier said of Pitino. "He's one of the best coaches out there, I really like him. They're very high on me and I like (Louisville) a lot."

Trier said he would play for Athletes First in the EYBL this summer at the Peach Jam and has some other events coming up before he makes a decision on anything college wise.

With Trier noting he wants to make the "right" decision, he said there probably wouldn't be anything coming "any time soon," on a decision. But he will make some visits later this summer and into the early fall.
