Allonzo Trier – (Seattle, Wash.), – Athletes First – 2015
Position: Shooting Guard
Committed College: Arizona
Date: May 24, 2014
Evaluator: Brandon Clay
Location: Nike EYBL (Minneapolis, Minn.)
Trier is both a slasher and a shooter. He might be the best scorer at the off guard position in the country. He is strong with the ability to create plays. He shoots it off the catch or the bounce. His free throw is inconsistent right now.

It is not even a question who the most consistent scorer has been on the EYBL Circuit this spring. Currently averaging 29.4 points per game, Allonzo Trier of Seattle, Wash., is putting points up at a remarkable rate. Standing at 6-foot-5, Trier has a lethal combination of size and body control that allows him to put up points in bunches. While the west coast native is a great athlete, what allows him to score the way he does is high level skill set. He uses an array of jab steps and spin moves to evade defenders and get clean looks at the bucket. Case in point with his Athlete First match-up with Team Texas Elite, defenders worked hard to limit his looks but still shot an impressive 9-15 from the field and finish with a game high 30 points. Simply stated, Trier is always in attack mode and sports great touch in the kill zone. He embodies the classic scorers’ mentality that many would want to see from the shooting guard position.

Trier is a bigger option at the shooting guard position. He’s got a strong frame and is still learning how to use that to attack to draw contact and make a play. He made a tough right hand on left side finish here while also showing a smooth release on his 3-pointer and free throw as well.
