Anthem Prep High School's 6-foot-9, 190-pound athletic senior post Trey Wood has been a very underrated prospect in Arizona's 2018 class, but, as of late, Wood is beginning to heat up in his college recruitment. This fall, Wood has received two different scholarship offers for himself.
This week, Wood received an offer from head coach Barrett Peery and his staff at Portland State University. He also recently received a scholarship offer from UMASS-Lowell.
Wood recently took an official recruiting visit to UMASS-Lowell, so an official recruiting visit should be scheduled to Portland State as well by him very soon.
With numerous prospects in Arizona's 2018 class already making their college decisions, Wood is a very underrated college prospect that I really like and feel is worthy of a lot of college attention. Wood put up serious numbers as a junior last season, and will have just as big of a senior season for himself as well.
Last season as a junior, Wood averaged eye-popping numbers at Anthem Prep - averaging 23.6 points, 14.6 rebounds and 6 blocks per/game.
Wood got off to a very good start to the spring club season in 2016, while playing for his Powerhouse Hoops 16U Black team, and then suffered an injury that caused him to miss the remainder of the 2016 spring and summer club season. He returned this past (2017) spring and summer, and turned in a very good performance during the club season.
Wood is also an excellent student, and is already a full academic qualifier, so he is ready to go for the college program he chooses.
I will continue to follow his college recruitment closely this fall, and bring you any updates as they continue to develop.
Arizona Hoop Review Scouting Report: Wood, while lacking physical size and girth on his long, thin frame, is very mobile for his size and runs the floor like a guard. His ability to outrun opposing post players down the floor makes him an attractive prospect over time. Wood has tremendous upside as a player, something we often talk about, but this young man has loads of it. As he gains physical maturity he will blossom nicely. Wood is an effective scorer currently on the low block with solid low-post footwork and a nice jump hook. He also is able to make shots away from the basket, from mid-range. He is capable of putting the basketball on the floor from the wing and also making moves to the basket, where he is a good finisher. Wood is also a very active rebounder and shotblocker - among the very best for his size and position in the class. His length and versatility as a post are amazing attributes and will only benefit him a great deal over time as he matures and develops. Wood will need to continue to work hard on his craft to reach his full potential as a player over time, but he has very good work ethic as a player and that should not be a problem for him at all. Whomever lands this young man will get a nice talent who has his best years well ahead of him.
