TUCSON (KGUN9-TV)- Arizona basketball continues to show it's one of the top college programs in the country by securing a commitment from Allonzo Trier.  He is known right now as one most potent scorer in Class of 2015.

ESPN writer Reggie Rankin talked with Trier recently and he said, "My relationship with Coach [Sean] Miller and the way they recruited me was the difference," Trier told while on a weekend visit to Tucson. "It's a family program, a players program. I just fell in love with everything."
Trier is No. 19 in the ESPN 100.  He attended Montrose Christian in Maryland last season and is set to transfer to Findlay Prep (Las Vegas) this year.
The 6-foot-4 Trier was recruited by several elite programs and told that he ultimately chose the Wildcats over Washington, UCLA, Kansas and Louisville.
Trier will likely play a role as a freshman as Arizona is expected to lose freshman wing Stanley Johnson and sophomore forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson after this season. Junior big men Kaleb Tarczewski and Brandon Ashley could also depart for the NBA, and point guard T.J. McConnell is a senior.
Trier is know for his ability to score and he is aggressive in getting to the basket .  He is also accurate from beyond the arc.
