Trey Wertz cemented his status as one of the better perimeter prospects in the country with a big July on the Adidas Circuit. Hit the jump to go inside Trey’s thought process as he heads down the home stretch of his recruitment.
Averaging 16.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game at the Adidas Summer Championship event, the 6’5 combo-guard was a standout in a star-studded event even if Wertz is taking the humble route.
“Other than the week in Spartanburg, I feel like it was a pretty good July overall for me.”
Having viewed Trey live several times in July, he is a jumbo guard with shiftiness and good vision. Wertz has range that extends out to 25 feet and is a very good shooter from distance off the catch. He excels in pick and roll action where he can read the hedge and finish at the rim or find teammates in stride for easy baskets. While other names may get more hype, Trey won a fair share of matchups against some of the top PGs in the country in July. .
“Shooting, Scoring, and my ability to make plays for myself and others are my biggest strengths.”
Wertz’s strong play has him receiving plenty of attention on the recruiting trail recently, as Temple, UMass, Boston College, Murray State, Cornell, and Santa Clara have all extended offers within the past month alone. Trey also holds offers from Virginia Tech, Clemson, Penn, Davidson, Charlotte, Richmond and Old Dominion with interest coming from Missouri and TCU among other programs.
With his recruitment coming into focus, Wertz has a late fall timeline for making a commitment.
“I hopefully want to commit in early November,” Trey told Endless Motor.
While he doesn’t have any visits scheduled as of right now, Wertz has a few factors that will be key in his decision-making process.
“Academics, relationship with the Coach, location, and somewhere that I can make an immediate impact playing my game.”
On the court, Trey has lofty goals for his senior campaign at Providence Day School and beyond.
“Win another state title this year and then the ultimate goal is to make it to the next next level.”
Trey is one of the more under-appreciated guards in the country for the 2018 class. His combination of size, ballhandling, vision and shooting make him one of the best guard prospects available. Perhaps the best thing about Wertz is upside, as he’s not even close to scratching the surface of what he will ultimately be. With 20 pounds of muscle mass in a college strength and conditioning program, he has the size and skill to be an upper tier high-major college player at either guard spot.
