Allonzo Trier, a 6’4″ shooting guard from Rockville, MD, committed to head coach Sean Miller and the University of Arizona Wildcats today. Trier, the No. 11 player in 247Sports’ class of 2015 composite rankings, led the Nike Peach Jam in scoring last month with 30.8 PPG.

 

Though Kentucky was never thought to be a favorite for the prolific scorer, earlier this summer, 247Sports’ Chris Fisher reported that John Calipari began to make a push for Trier’s services:

 

“Coach Calipari texted me as soon as USA Trials cuts were made and he told me congratulations,” Trier said. “He was talking about how good I’ve been playing this summer. He just said to keep it up. He said he’s been following me and he’ll continue to follow me.

“Everybody knows how [Kentucky is] great with guards,” Trier said. “They have a lot of guys that go one-and-done, high lottery picks. They let their guards play and use their ability.”

 

Trier joins a loaded 2015 Arizona class that already includes top prospects Justin Simon and Ray Smith.

In the words of Shawn Carter, it’s on to the next one.

    Lets see …. home schooled in Oklahoma for two years, then transfer to Maryland for one year, then transfer to Nevada for senior year. Yep, just a typical high school student.

    There is something fishy about this recruiting class. It’s like Cal isn’t even trying to get the top kids. Probably all the whining from the fringe about “far Cal” last season biting us on the butt.

    Kids go to the West Coast & must go into Witness Protection because the majority are never heard from again.

    Missing coach O already. If Kenny leaves, we may be relegated to signing white guys.

    I’m so glad someone is finally calling out the “Slice”. He only has one player to recruit. Boy what a hire!!! KRS needs to get off the SLICE bandwagon.

    You people need to relax. There has not been one player that has committed to another school that was really high on our list. We will be fine!
