Trey’von Hopkins has proven over his high school career to be one of the better scorers in the Midwest that also brings some size and athleticism to the shooting guard position. Those traits have landed him in the 2018 Rivals150 as the 143rd-best prospect and given him plenty of options for the next level.

The Oklahoma native says Boise State, Tulsa, Florida Gulf Coast, Wichita State, Gonzaga, Minnesota, TCU, Purdue, Creighton, Baylor and Kansas State have all been involved in his recruitment.

Tulsa: “It’s a pretty good program. They are on the come up and what they tell me they want me to be as a freshman is really what I’m looking for in a program.”

Gonzaga: “That was originally my dream school. I just love that school. They are always slept on, but they are always really good.”

Wichita State: “They have been trying to get me up there on an official and they want me to come to their camps. (Gregg Marshall) is just a pretty solid coach and has a great record to back it.”

Boise State: “That’s one of my top schools just because I trust that staff and I feel like they can make me into the player I want to be.”

DePaul: “I like coach (Dave) Leitao. He’s just a genuine guy and he knows how to run a program.”


Hopkins doesn’t plan on waiting too much longer before he gives one program his verbal commitment. He wants to cut his list down soon, possibly take some official visits during June, and then end his recruitment toward the end of June or possibly wait until early August.


Boise State, DePaul, and Tulsa are the schools Hopkins says are standing out to him as he moves closer to a decision. Boise State has done a really good job convincing him it presents the best opportunity for him. Tulsa has made a strong push to keep him close for college, while Leitao is keeping DePaul in the mix.
