The Cedar Park Timberwolves have been a state power over the last few years when it comes to football. The basketball team is definitely nothing to sneeze at either. Coming off of a 22-9 season and a 2nd round playoff appearance, Trey Knight is planning on using his talents to help the 'Wolves go farther.
Knight is a 6'4" 180lb athletic, long, smooth shooting two guard. He holds an offer from Sam Houston State and has been receiving interest from Texas State, Boise State, SMU, Akron, Liberty and Texas Tech.
Trey is staying busy this summer on the AAU circuit. He suits up for the Franchize All-Stars out of Houston and he and his teammates are gearing up for next month's live period. He works out every day as much as possible. Whether it's skill work, three point shooting, or dribbling, anything and everything that he needs to be a better guard.
It was at an event during the open period in April that Texas State Head Coach Danny Kaspar saw Knight in person and caught his eye. Both Coach Kaspar and Assistant Coach Terrence Rencher have been actively recruiting Trey.
"Texas State has been telling me that they like to recruit people with character, not just basketball skills. They're impressed with my skills and how I do in the classroom," said Knight.
The early signing period is a short five months away, but the 2015 prospect is in no rush to have a decision. Taking his time and thinking everything through is what he would like. He'll be taking visits and knows what he's looking for in a program.
"Number one is a good education. Second, is me developing my skills as a player and being able to get better and improve in the program. I also want to continue to make others better as well," said Knight.
Distance does play a factor with Trey, but not a huge one. It would be nice to stay home, but wherever he goes his family will support him.
San Marcos is a 45 minute to hour drive south on I-35, and it never hurts to be close to home. As for a visit, Trey is clear about that.
"That's definitely a school (Texas State) I'll take an unofficial visit too."
