Gary Trent Jr., who announced last month he would transfer from Apple Valley (Minn.) to Findlay Prep (Henderson, Nev.), revealed his top five college choices on Twitter Tuesday.
Particularly of note is Trent’s insistence that he and fellow five-star Wendell Carter will be a package deal in college, something he wrote about in a blog post for USA TODAY High School Sports a couple weeks ago.
“Wendell (Carter) and I are still planning to play together in college; we’re actually planning some visits together to a couple schools and we’ll plan some without each other,” Trent wrote. “At the end of the day we want to play with each other; we feel like we’d be a great 1-2 punch, but we’ll do what’s best for us and our families too.
“I would bet on us playing together though.”
Carter is down to eight schools, and is also considering Kentucky, Duke, and Arizona.
Trent plans to decide this fall, while Carter hasn’t announced a decision date.
