  • Gary Trent Jr. Meets With Entire Duke Staff on Home Visit

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Gary Trent Jr., the 6-foot-5 shooting guard now at Napa (CA) Prolific Prep, has long been linked to Duke and after seeing pictures of his home visit with the entire Duke staff on Wednesday night, it’s not hard to see why.

    Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, associate head coach Jeff Capel and assistants Nate James and Jon Scheyer all met with the Michigan native, who took his first official visit to UCLA this past weekend.

    Trent Jr. recently cut his list to include Arizona, Duke, Michigan State, UCLA and Kentucky. After visiting UCLA, he hits Arizona Oct. 14, Duke Oct. 21 and MIchigan State Oct. 25.

    “I want to see the campus life, talk to the coaches about what they can do for my life, hangout with the team and things like that. I just want to see everything firsthand basically,” he wrote in his USA Today blog.

    Trent Jr. has long been linked to Atlanta (GA) Pace Academy big man Wendell Carter Jr., who is down to four schools — Duke, Georgia, Georgia Tech and Harvard.

    “The package deal is most definitely on,” Trent said this summer at Adidas Nations. “He was actually my roommate at the Nike Academy and he’s my roommate before we go, so we have continue to bond and grow as people.”
