I think thats a great landing spot for Trey - he wont have the pressure of a high level D1 program, should be able to play right away and will be developed by Coach Pitino; he will be the best player he can be and should have a great chance to play professionally.

^^^You can always count on Wink to be the turd in the punch bowl, or anywhere else. Congrats to the young man, you will learn from one of the best.

Super happy for the kid, good scholarship from a good school and will play for a good coach. But he has zero chance of playing pro. Heís not very skilled, he dominates around the mountains because of his size. The only true skill he has is his timing in terms of blocking shots. Very nice young man, and hope he gets to play for Iona!

So Pitino can't take a raw kid and elevate his skills and put him in pro ball somewhere.

Prove dumb people wrong kid.

Tell me what true skills he has Jet pilot besides the one I listed in his timing. He doesnít have a soft touch around the basket, he has no true post move. He gets all of his points by dunks, lobs or by just going over a smaller defender. How about you stop being bias, before you call people dumb sir.

He seems to do well for himself on the Nike EYBL circuit.

People on the internet telling college scouts they made a mistake has never made sense to me. Like when people said Kash wasn’t good enough for the SEC but played for U.K. and had a scholarship to South Carolina as well.

Have you ever seen Trey play on the circuit where he plays against kids his size and caliber? It’s a dirty shot to knock his skill based off him playing 5”11 kids. That isn’t his fault everyone else is shorter than him and he plays down to the level of his competition. Ray Kasongo was the same exact way, he could’ve had 40 points a night by posting little kids up and just dunking over them. But he didn’t, but on the circuit he garnered a lot of attention because he was playing kids his caliber and he had to utilize his entire skill set.

So just be happy for the kid, he’s helping Eastern Ky players get more eyeballs in the mountains.

Iíve seen the kid play on his circuit, he does play harder on his circuit. But if you want to use Kasongo as an example, letís talk about him. How he switched from school to school and never got to play at any school he went to. He wasnít very skilled either. I am happy Trey is getting more eye balls towards the mountains, because hopefully that helps my future kids somewhere down the line (not even born yet). But to say he has a chance of going pro, come on.

Professional does not mean NBA. People are making nice livings over seas. Play 12 years in Italy and not have to work another day in you life. It all depends on work ethic in those situations and Trey has just that. Sky is the limit for this kid.

Congratulations young man. If Coach P. and former Coach at Wake thinks he can play. I would think they know what they want in their program. Coach P will develop him and he will become the best player he can. Good Luck. Hope to make it over to watch him this year.

Speaking on behalf of all kids who tend to be put down... Wink and Milk, you two should grow up and act like mature adults. Getting on here to bash a kid, his ability to play and skill level is beyond childish.

Trey has put in a lot of hard work over the years to achieve his accomplishments, and for the two of you to bash him in a public chat room standing behind anonymous names is cowardly. Trey is a great kid and does not deserve the trash you two have spilled from your keyboards on here. I think he has great potential to prove himself at the collegiate level and beyond. What he wants to accomplish will be up to him and his work ethic. He has in fact accomplished a huge goal already by being among the tiny percentage (just 1%) of high school basketball players to receive a scholarship to play at the Division I level, something Iím sure the two of you did not accomplish. I say, the two of you should lay off the kid and give him a break. We canít predict his future but I can tell you this, from what Iíve seen he has the ability to accomplish what you two believe he canít.

I respect your opinion Mr Vanhoose, I do. Iím not bashing the kid. Iíve met Trey, I know he is a very kind hearted young man. Iíve told him my thoughts of his game to him. He understands where Iím coming from. It is a basketball opinion. You have yours, and I have mine. I just think the idea Trey can go pro, is very far fetched. I even said I hope he gets to play for Iona and Iím glad heís getting eyeballs towards the mountains.

Not bashing the kid just stating an opinion. Had to listen to all this hype with his brother and it will end the same way. Compared to Justin Johnson, he is not even in the same gym. JJ cannot even get a look in the NBA. He had a decent college career. Just because someone expresses a different opinion, does not give other so called grown ups on here the right to call them a “turd in a pouch bowl”. As far as giving a break, prove the ability. As fas as the AAU circuit, that stuff is a joke.

Professionally? He's still young. I didn't get my same tools I would suggest he needs improvement till I was 24 and that's a basketball opinion. I was 6'9 too. Let him develop first. Let's enjoy the fact a mountain kid gets to play D1 at any level.

We may as well change the name of the site.

ďRivalsĒ is too strong of a word.

If you post an opinion (which is what forums are for), youíre automatically dogging a kid, coach or team.

Good lord, quit being so dagone soft.

Nothing personal. Just stating my opinion. Here is another one: Pitino will not be there 4 years.
