Tre'Shaun Lexing was a do-it-all type of player for Lincoln High as a junior, says prep coach Aubrey Shelton.
"This past year we started him at point and he played all five positions during most games. He ended up averaging 18 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists per game, with one triple double and he was very close on two others," said Shelton.
In addition to the offers from WSU and the 'Zags, OSU, Cal, and UW are showing interest but have not offered. Ken Bone and area recruiter Curtis Allen, however, are hotly pursuing him, said Shelton.
"Right now WSU has shown him the most interest...They see him as a scoring guard with tons of potential," said Shelton.
SHELTON COMPARES LEXING with another in-state product, a one-and-done guard for UW this past season.
"He reminds me of Tony Wroten because they are the same size and both lefties," said Shelton. "But the difference is Tony is much better at attacking the rim and Tre is a much better perimeter threat.
"Tre is a 6-5 lefty who can shoot very well. He has a good handle, has a high basketball IQ and makes his teammates better. He is very good in the post, mid range, and from three."
SHELTON SAID HE expects several more offers could potentially be on the way. He also said that though he's naturally biased towards his player, Lexing's talent and potential are plain for anyone to see.
"To me he is the best player in Washington in the class of 2013," said Shelton. "...Tre has been working very hard in the weight room to improve his strength and he lives in the gym. He is very driven to be successful and is extremely competitive.
"If he continues to work hard and improve, I would expect him to get some very strong interest from multiple other schools this summer."
