At the NC Phenom 150 camp last October, we wrote “Trey is definitely one to put on your radar and SIM CARD. He has a combination of size, athleticism and skill set that is advanced for his age/grade. He is an enjoyable player to watch because he understands the game and will give you maximum effort. Trey plays the game with the right attitude and will give you 100%. He is more of a scorer and slasher and the next step in his development is to improve his outside jump shot”
Fast forward to July and Trey Cousins was simply sensational. At the Grassroots Tip Off Classic, he averaged 31 PPG and 12 RPB with a high of 37 points. At the Champions Showcase, he averaged 30.1 PPG and 8 RPB while he averaged 29.6 PPG and 7 RPG at the Summer Havoc. He also had a tourney high 41 points. Since then, he captured an offer from Maryland Eastern Shore and is now fielding interest from Elon, College of Charleston, Liberty, ECU and Tulsa.
Trey is wired to score and he has the DNA of a highly effective scorer. First of all, he always seems to be in the right place at the right time. He can score from all levels on the court and has improved his perimeter shooting.
Although his outside shot does need better backspin and rotation, Trey was consistent from the perimeter and even had one game where he knocked down four 3-pointers in one game. Trey seems to flourish in transition and is excellent at attacking the rim. He has a knack of finishing with contact and gets to the free throw line consistently. He has tremendous body control and plays with smoothness not often seen for his age/grade.
Not many players were more productive this past summer and we expect a breakout high school season from Trey Cousins.
