Grizzly Recruit: Trinson White

Wisconsin Sports Network’s Mark Miller is reporting that Wayne Tinkle and his Montana Grizzly coaching staff is recruiting Trinson White of Milwaukee Riverside high school in Wisconsin. White is a 6-4 (I have seen him also listed at 6-5) prospect who is really burning up the AAU circuit this spring. ESPN and other scouting organization identify him as a point guard prospect but in the last 3-4 months he has played every position on the floor.

As I understand it Riverside has a small enrolment and at 6-4 White has mainly played the power forward and center spot the past few years for them. This spring, though on the AAU circuit he has been able to move to the back court positions and has really exploded on the recruiting scene.

Last year for Riverside he averaged 11 points and 8 rebounds a game and for most college evaluators was considered an undersized interior player, and was not getting that much attention. I do believe though the Griz have been recruiting him since this past winter.

White was a first team All City league player as a junior for Riverside.

Here are a couple evaluations by Mark Miller of Wisconsin Sports Network from earlier this spring.

  • “He’s a 6-4 lead guard who handles the ball well and has great court vision,” said Curtis Weathers, the executive director of the TP Elite program. “He’s terrific. His skill level is really high and his athleticism is really high.
  • #33 Trinson White, 6-4, Class of 2011, PG/WG, Milwaukee Riverside
    A hidden gem in the Milwaukee City Conference … Earned first-team all-league honors after averaging 10.7 points per game for coach Tyrone Lewis at Riverside … Helped Riverside to a 15-9 record … From coach Jordan, “Trinson is playing very well right now. He is under the radar and I think he’s going to blow up when he hits the circuit in July. He is elusive with the ball and is a good decision maker. I’ve been getting some calls from Montana, Cal Poly and Iowa State about this kid. He can play major or mid-major college basketball.”

ESPN recently listed White and gave him a 90 rating at the point guard spot and here is their evaluation.

May, 2010: White is a combination guard with great size. He is a terrific ball handler with matching court vision. White has a good feel for the game and can get his teammates the ball where they are in a position to score in a variety of ways. He can drive, draw and kick, penetrate and drop off or just make the simple post feed. He seemed to get to the rim at will where he finished on a consistent basis. White can get out of troubled when pressure and make a play at end of clock situations. In transition if White is not brought under control he can finish above the rim. White also hit mid range open jumpers and although he didn’t have to show the three ball because he lived in the lane his free throws looked good when he drew fouls. On defense White played in a stance and pressured the ball with his great length and good lateral foot speed. He can also play the shooting guard position and defend both guard positions as well. White is very talented and is one of the pleasant surprises of the spring thus far.

Some of the schools who have shown an interest in White are Iowa State, Bradley, Cal Poly, Houston and Montana. White is not listed on Scout.com or Rivals.com nor most other recruiting services but that is about to change and he should be getting a lot more interest as we head to summer.
