VIDEO: 6-10 Import Tony Trocha

The import from Colombia, 6-10 Tony Trocha, might be part of the 2012 or 2013 class but, regardless, some big-time programs are showing interest...

Tony Trocha, the 6-10 post from Houston (Tex>. St. Thomas Episcopal, came to the United States in March almost completely unknown.

But as soon as he picked up a basketball at St. Thomas Episcopal the word got out. Coaches from programs such as Kentucky, Texas, Oregon, Florida, Ohio State, and UCLA started to show interest, and Kentucky's John Calipari went in person to Texas to check out Trocha, who had played on the Under-17 Colombian national team.

He came to St. Thomas as a 17-year-old and classified as a junior, for the 2013 class, but the recent word is that he could be re-classified to the 2012 class and be eligible for college this fall.

UCLA is definitely recruiting Trocha.
