@TrickyTrey23 lifts Creighton to #5 Class-247 for 2021!
Oklahoma’s #1, Gatorade PoY SG Trey Alexander to the Jays.
What an excellent recruiting cycle it has been in 2021. Fresh off Covid and other assorted foibles, Coach Greg McDermott’s Creighton program has scored its’ greatest recruiting run. Notably the best recruiting class since 2002 (new era of scouting services rankings), and just possibly the best of all-time (perhaps even greater than the Benoit Benjamin-led 1982 Class). Well done Coach Mac, well done!
It has been rumored over the last 2-3 weeks that CU was in the running for the top player from Oklahoma. Trey Alexander comes to the Hilltop unanimously ranked in the Top 100: 55-ESPN, 81-Rivals, and 73-247.com. He has been consistently ranked over the last couple of years, at least. Alexander is one of the top SG’s in the country and is known for his toughness as well as his shooting. Although primarily known as a shooter/scorer, Alexander hangs his hat on defense and rebounding. Heritage Hall won one Class 4A State Championship and was runner-up to two others on his watch. Trey was an Auburn commit, but reopened his recruitment on 22 April.
Tricky Trey completes a 5-man class for Creighton’s 2021 campaign. Welcome to the Hilltop Trey, welcome home. Time now to git to work…we got some Championships to Win!
