It seems like many players on Team Loaded NC (Jayden Gardner and Landers Nolley) helped raise their stock this summer on the Adidas Circuit. Next up to talk about from Team Loaded NC is Trey Wertz. Trey is a Class of 2018 6’5″ 180lbs combo guard from Charlotte, North Carolina who plays his high school ball at Providence Day School (Charlotte, North Carolina).
Trey is another guy who is labeled as a winner. As a sophomore in 2016 at Providence Day School, he helped lead them to an NCISAA 3A state championship against Miami Heat’s Bam Adebayo. This past season he really turned scouts heads at the Chick-fil-a Classic, one of the nation’s best high school holiday tournaments in Columbia, South Carolina.
Trey is a great shooter who has great ability to drive into the lane. What I like about Trey is his court vision and the willingness to make the extra pass. This will allow him to play some point at the next level. With being 6’5″ it allows him to see over the top of the defense for a guard position. Trey is a solid 3-star prospect that is a national Top 250 recruit. With a successful Summer, we were able to catch up with Trey and ask him a few questions.
What schools do you hold offers from at this moment?
Trey: Clemson, Virginia Tech, Boston College, Davidson, Santa-Clara, Charlotte, Tulane, Richmond, UPenn, Old Dominion, and Cornell
What schools are showing at least medium interest who haven’t offered yet?
Trey: Missouri, Georgetown, Georgia, Memphis, Murray State, Rutgers, Princeton, and UMASS.
What was your experience like playing Team Loaded NC this summer on the Adidas Circuit?
Trey: It was pretty good. We had fun on and off the floor. We won a lot of games, so that helped.
Who was your toughest one-on-one matchup for yourself this Summer and why?
Trey: Immanuel Quickley was probably the best player I played. He was just really smart and methodical. He also got really the game we played.
What do you consider your strengths and weaknesses on the court?
Trey: My strengths are shooting and scoring, Also my ability to create for myself and others. My weaknesses are my strength and athleticism. I need to work on my on-ball defense as well.
What do you do differently than anyone else on the court?
Trey: Well I think my ability to play the 1 and 2. I am very effective at being able to play both which I think is different from a lot of other shooting guards, which is my more natural position.
How do you see your game translating to the next level?
Trey: In the right system, I think I can come in and make an impact right away in a lot of facets of the game such as scoring, shooting, and playmaking right now. Hopefully, by the time I get to campus, it could be in all areas of the game.
What are your goals for your senior year?
Trey: I want to win a State Championship, make AP All-State for North Carolina, and made All-Conference.
With Trey having the versatility to play point guard and shooting guard at 6’5″ makes him an intriguing prospect. Like Trey mentioned, if he gets stronger in the weight room and works on becoming a better athlete then I see this guard landing in the ACC. Virginia Tech is hot on him and I believe the two would be a good fit for each other. Many options could shake up and come across Trey’s face his senior year. We will keep you updated with his recruiting process.
