RANKINGS: Class of 2014 - 2015 - 2016
Without a doubt, one of the spring grassroots season's most productive performers has been the No. 38 player in the class of 2015 Allonzo Trier. Trier's ranking will soon be climbing and his recruitment has already taken off.
A 6-foot-4 scorer at Rockville (Md.) Montrose Christian, Trier has been torching Nike's Elite Youth Basketball League and leading his Athlete's First team to wins. His national profile has been building rapidly.
"I think I've just showed my improvement," Trier told Rivals.com. "Through the course of the year I have continuously improved. I think for a little while people were questioning that and think I've answered those questions."
While Trier can run the point if needed, he is most dangerous on the wing and it isn't like he has been jacking shots to put up his points. Trier has taken good shots and also showed that he is a well rounded and all-around solid player.
"My ability to just make plays and score the basketball," said Trier when asked what his strengths were. "Every time I get a touch teams are going to over help or send double teams. I've made it about making the right play out of it and doing what my team needs me to do."
Trier doesn't feel like he has made it, at least not yet. He is hungry to hone other parts of his game.
"I want to work on being a better rebounding guard on the defensive end," said Trier. "I want to get it off the boards and push it and make more plays that lead to transition."
On the recruiting front, things have really taken off.
"Everybody has stepped it up," said Trier. "A lot of schools are ready for me to commit or start taking visits.
Among those schools angling hardest to land his services are Louisville, Arizona, Connecticut, UCLA, Georgetown, Baylor, Kansas, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma and Minnesota.
Trier is starting to feel the pressure from college coaches and is finding that it is hard to keep in touch with them as much as he would like. For that reason, he'd like to formalize a list in the relatively near future. But, he's not planning to make an early decision.
"That's definitely something that me and my mom have talked about," said Trier of the pressure of recruiting. "Just the communication level with so many coaches is hard. After every game trying to keep in contact with them and you miss some because you can't talk to everybody at one time. It makes it difficult.
"I think it's going to be a wait until next spring approach. I need to get home and discuss it with my mother. When I get home and can narrow my list down then it will make it easier to make a decision with my mother."
