One of the most coveted players in the class of 2017 will play his senior year out west.
Gary Trent Jr. announced on Twitter Friday that he will leave Apple Valley (Minn.) and play his final high school season at perennial power Findlay Prep (Henderson, Nev.).
“Although it was very difficult,” Trent said in a message posted to Twitter, “my family and I have made the best decision for me.”
A five-star guard, Trent will join forces at Findlay Prep with fellow five-star P.J. Washington. He’s widely-considered one of the top shooting guards in the nation and among the best players.
Trent holds offers from a host of schools, including Duke, Kentucky, Michigan State, Kansas, and Ohio State.
