By Matt Schabert, Morehead State Athletic Media RelationsMOREHEAD, Ky. — Trent Scott, a 6-4 combo guard from Tampa, Fla., is the first signee for the Morehead State men’s basketball program this year. Scott is the first player from Florida’s Alonso High School to sign a Division I men’s basketball National Letter of Intent.
“We are extremely excited to officially add Trent to our program! We identified him back in the spring and began following his development and building a relationship that would ultimately allow him to see how he fits into our culture,” said head coach Preston Spradlin. “As a skilled combo guard with great athleticism and feel for the game, he will thrive in our system as a versatile player on both sides of the ball.
Scott, who will be a freshman in 2022-23, heads into his senior year after leading AHS to a 23-6 record last season, helping his squad win a district title and advance to the regional semifinals.
Scott averaged 16.7 points, 5.9 rebounds and 4.1 assists as a junior. He hit 49% from the field, 43% from three-point range and 76% from the free throw line.
He also plays for PHS Elite, an independent AAU program from his home state.
