Seattle, Washington has produced a good crop of high-level prospects in the last couple of years. In the class of 2008, Clarence Trent may be the next.
The 6-foot-8, 200-pound small forward from Gig Harbor (Wash.) High School may not have the big national reputation like some other players from the Emerald City. That may soon change.
Averaging 15 points, 10 rebounds and four assists per game, Gig Harbor head coach Lyle McIntosh believes Trent's best days are ahead of him.
"His potential is unlimited. It's up to him to work hard to be the best he can be," McIntosh said. "The good thing about him Clarence is that he has the work ethic to get there."
Trent is a do-everything wing player, says McIntosh.
"He is playing very well this year for us," McIntosh said. "He's 6-8 and doing everything we've asked of him. He's played the point a couple of times."
Still under the radar on the recruiting scene, the high-majors are quietly hearing about Trent as the season goes along.
McIntosh said Arizona, Louisville and others have inquired this season but for the most part, Seattle's most intriguing sophomore is still a relative unknown.
