Rising senior shooting guard at Montrose Christian (Md.), Allonzo Trier is having a record-breaking summer.
He recently made history at the Nike EYBL, becoming the first player to score 30 points in each game of a single season.
“The EYBL was a great experience this year,” Trier said. “I learned a lot and I thought I played great.”
The Montrose Christian star is making quite the name for himself on the AAU circuit and has gotten the attention of numerous D1 programs.
Ranked #23 on ESPN’s list of the top rising seniors in the country, Trier currently has offers from Kansas, UCLA, Louisville, Georgetown, Maryland, Arizona, Connecticut, Baylor, and Texas A&M among many others. “It’s way more offers than I can count,” said Trier.
He describes himself as a tall, athletic scoring guard. “I like getting into the lane a lot,” he said.
He is also unafraid of contact once getting into the lane. At 6-5, 190lbs, Trier uses his size and strength to overpower smaller guards and get into the paint at will. He frequently gets to the free throw line, where he shot better than 90 percent during the season in the EYBL.
“I take at least 100 free throws every day,” Trier said. “It definitely makes me more confident when I get to the line.”
Trier's success is due, in large part, to his tremendous work ethic. His daily workout includes 500 made jump shots and numerous ball-handling drills.
If Trier is able to carry his momentum from this summer into the fall, expect a monster senior year from him.
