Every year Trinity holds their ‘’College Day’’ for the basketball team which invites college coaches from all levels to come in and check out the prospective talent for the upcoming years. Yesterday was no different as numerous college coaches came in and checked out the squad, let’s take a look at some of the youngsters that stood out.
2019 Forward Greg Gantt: The Providence commit was the best player on the floor without a doubt, he dominated on both ends but especially offensively. It seemed as if he was having his own personal dunk contest with the amount of powerful dunks he threw down. We also like his ability to be a point forward, and knock down shots at a solid rate, we expect a big time season from him.
2019 Guard KJ Marshall: There were quite a few D2 programs in attendance to see Marshall, schools such as Mount Olive, Queens, Barton and Fayetteville State were all in the building. He showed his speed, defense, the ability to knock down shots and how much of a competitor that he is.
2019 Guard Talton Jones: Already holding multiple D1 offers, he came into the day wanting to show what he could do against anybody and he definitely did. Ballhandling, Passing, Defending and some added athletic ability was on full display from him. You have to love what he can bring to a team and the upside he has for a program on the next level.
2020 Forward Todd Burtt: He is one of the more intriguing prospects on this team, he has a nice amount of upside and a good skillset already. The ability to knock down shots and make plays from the high post and perimeter makes him a nice asset to have on your team. Once he raises his motor consistently, he could see his stock rise even more.
2019 Guard DJ Horne: The Illinois State commit showed why so many D1 programs were interested in him prior to his commitment. He can score the ball at a high level, especially from three point land, and with the graduation of two top scorers from last year’s squad, he is coming just in time.
2021 Forward Robert Wright Jr: One of the newer additions to the team, he has a nice amount of upside but already has a solid amount of talent. He is a legit 6’8/240 pounds and understands how to play to his strengths, we only expect him to get better with time.
2022 Guard Cameron Oates: Has a high amount of potential in his game and has shown flashes of how good he can be. He is a quick guard with a frame that is already pretty lean, we were impressed with how well he battled against players 3 to 4 years older than him.
2022 Guard Fred Dillone: He was unable to participate due to an injury but is already a player that D1 programs have been tracking.
