Each and every time Phenom Hoop Report gets to report or sees a commitment from a player we have seen over the years, it is always a fantastic day. It is great to see players achieve their goal to play at the next level and it is such a great accomplishment for that player.
Here is the latest commitment.
Player: Trey Horton
Committed to: UTEP
What Was Said by Phenom Hoops:
“The overall value of three-point shooting should be obvious at this point, and Horton has been among the top marksmen in this class since his middle-school days. He’s a sturdy, low-maintenance wing prospect with a very useful off-ball presence and the ability to consistently produce within his role. Horton can attack closeouts and make the extra pass while being a solid rebounder and defensive piece. Though he can produce in an expanded role, his skillset and understanding of how to maximize his touches make him an extremely complementary player with seemingly any collection of teammates. Horton’s size, feel, and shooting prowess should continue to make him coveted by next-level coaches.”
“Horton provides a strong, physical presence to Providence Day on the perimeter. Horton has the ability to shoot the ball at a high level off the catch from behind the arc. But more importantly, he defends and rebounds really well at the guard position. With his size, he is able to guard multiple positions. He’s even strong enough to battle inside if he gets caught on a switch. Horton finished with 11 points, 5 rebounds and 1 steal.”
“Returning at the shooting guard position, Trey Horton looks to continue to elevate his game after a great sophomore season at Davidson Day. Horton is a tough, strong guard who can really shoot the ball from three. He has range, a quick release, and a ton of confidence. Horton has a knack for knocking down key shots at pivotal moments in games. His ability to play different positions and impact the game in multiple ways help him stay on the court for his team. More importantly, his ability to rebound the basketball, defend, and make winning/toughness plays will translate to not only being extremely productive for his high school and travel ball teams, but also at the next level.”
