    Trent Perry, the four-star point guard from Harvard Westlake (CA), is considering six schools and is closing in on a decision.

    Ranked the No. 8 combo guard in the 247Sports.com Composite, Perry is considering Southern Cal, Colorado, TCU, Oregon, Gonzaga and Stanford.

    He broke down each school for ZAGSBLOG:

    Southern Cal: “Basically they let their guards go. It’s close to home, I have a good relationship with Coach [Andy] Enfield and coach [Chris] Capko and I have an opportunity to really be impactful with their winning, so that’s his messsage.”

    Colorado: “I also have a really good relationship with Coach [Tad] Boyle and coach [Bill] Grier. I know some of the guys, like KJ Simpson and RJ Smith so it was really to know that I know some people on the team. And also Coach Boyle just lets his guards know that everybody’s a basketball player and nobody’s a robot. He makes sure everybody is who they are on the court. He lets them play.”

    TCU: “TCU is arguably the fastest team in the country, they have the most points in transition. They have a lot of success with guards and a lot of development for guards as well. And they have a good track with getting them to the league.”

    Oregon: “Coach [Dana] Altman arguably considered one of the best coaches coaching right now. I really have a great relationship with him and coach [Brian] Fish. they have a really good track record of putting guards into the league, and he’s also just worked with a lot of pros. And they have a great development system over there.”

    Gonzaga: “Coach [Mark] Few is one of the winningest coaches, and he’s also worked on basically every level you could possibly think of. He’s worked with Team USA, worked with the pros and really develops his guards and knows how to get them to the league.”

    Stanford: “Stanford has been recruiting me since early junior year. And the school, the academics, is one of a kind. And also just the relationship with I have with Coach [Jerod] Haase and the rest of the staff is also really good and of course their on the come up and just got two Top-50 players in Andrej Stojakovic and Kanaan Carlyle so they’re definitely trying to turn it around over there.”

    Perry has no visits set and said he has no commitment date yet.

    Wherever he goes, he plans to make an impact.

    “I’ll bring everything,” he said. “I’m like an all-around player. I can pass, shoot, defend, I’ll just bring my all. I can do everything on the floor and I’ll just impact winning.”
