2015 Arizona commit Allonzo Trier is attending Findlay Prep in Henderson, NV for his senior season and will play alongside the top point guard in the 2016 class, Derryck Thornton Jr. Pracitces officially started at Findlay Prep and PGU caught up with Trier to discuss his move to Las Vegas.

“It’s been great. My transition has been smooth so far. I’m all settled in and practices have officially started,” Trier told PGU.

“Derryck and I are a lethal combination with the way he can pass the ball. He’s super fast and can make great plays. Couple that with my ability to shoot, score, finish and make plays, it’s going to be tough for other teams to guard us,” he said.

With Tucson being a short flight from Nevada, Trier plans on making a few trips to visit the UofA this season.

“I’ll be in Tucson for the Red-Blue game but I’ll likely visit a few more times before and after depending on my schedule.”

Trier will visit for the Red-Blue game with fellow 2015 Arizona commits Justin Simon, Ray Smith and Chance Comanche.

“I’m excited and it’s great to see Arizona with the #1 recruiting class in the country. I think we’ll all have big roles next year with the chance of a lot guys entering the draft. It’s an important senior year for all of us because we have to be able to come in and perform,” Trier explained.

Trier keeps in touch with the Arizona staff and they have an open line of communication.

“I talked to Coach Pasternack recently, he’s seen me play recently and told me I’m looking good and he’s happy with my progress. He says I need to be ready to produce and be a key player from day one,” Trier said.

Chances are Trier will have his opportunity to do just that come next season.

    Thornton and Trier has to be the best high school backcourt in the country. Too bad Arizona doesn’t have space on its roster for another great PG in 2016.

    It sounds like he’s excited about getting down to Tucson and I know we’re all excited to have a player of his caliber. Can’t wait to have another shooter on the squad that stretches the D the way he does. Good luck at findlay this season!
