Tucson, AZ, United States (4E Sports) – Allonzo Trier, the most potent scorer in the Class of 2015, has committed to Arizona, choosing the Wildcats over Washington, UCLA, Kansas and Louisville.
“My relationship with Coach [Sean] Miller and the way they recruited me was the difference,” Trier said. “It’s a family program, a players program. I just fell in love with everything.”
The 6-foot-4 Trier averaged 30.8 points per game during the prestigious Nike Peach Jam in July and 29.4 points in the Nike EYBL. He is extremely aggressive in getting to the basket and can also knock down shots from beyond the arc.
He will have an integral role as a freshman as Arizona is expected to lose freshman wing Stanley Johnson and sophomore forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson after this season.
Junior big men Kaleb Tarczewski and Brandon Ashley could also depart for the NBA, and point guard T.J. McConnell is a senior.
“I think the fit is perfect,” Trier said. “They expect me to come in and do a lot. I want to get the team to the Final Four and win a national championship.”
Trier joins two more Arizona commits in the Class of 2015 who also rank in the top 30 — 6-foot-5 point guard Justin Simon and 6-foot-7 wing Ray Smith.
