Five-star recruit Allonzo Trier commits to Arizona

Monday August 4th, 2014

Arizona secured its third top recruiting commitment for the class of 2015, receiving a verbal commitment from five-star prospect Allonzo Trier.

Trier, a 6'4", 185-pound guard, picked Arizona over Washington, UCLA, Kansas and Louisville.

"My relationship with Coach [Sean] Miller and the way they recruited me was the difference," Trier told "It's a family program, a players program. I just fell in love with everything."

Trier played for Montrose Christian in Maryland last season and is set to transfer to Findlay Prep in Las Vegas this upcoming season.

The Wildcats have also received 2015 commitments from point guard Justin Simon and swingman Ray Smith, who is recovering from a torn ACL.

"I think the fit is perfect," Trier said. "They expect me to come in and do a lot. I want to get the team to the Final Four and win a national championship."
