Trey Patterson Moving All the Way Up to the #1 Spot in the Class of 2021

Trey Patterson already a consensus Top 5 player nationally on every ranking board; currently #3 on the player rankings – we have been waiting for Patterson to become comfortable being a star.  The transformation occurred in Washington, DC at the Elevate Hoops Proving Ground.  What we saw was a very confident player but it's not cockiness.

Patterson rebounded, put the ball on the floor, defended multiple positions, should a phenomenal change of pace and change of direction along with lateral movement – he was explosive and showed scary athleticism.  He was an excellent scorer and did it in a variety of ways at every level effectively; he showed the propensity to get to the free-throw line always the sign a pure scorer and not just a shooter.

At a true 6’7 and growing Patterson possesses an excellent mid-range game and can get to the rim against anyone and shoot or finish over anyone. He also has all the athleticism to be an elite guy and is an unselfishly good passer. A true star in the making and frankly it may be a foregone conclusion for Patterson to matriculate into the #1 spot in the class.  There is no one who is close at it pertains to the total package and combination of size and skill.   There is a premium on this and a model that scouts look for at the next level; the bottom-line is that many of Patterson’s boxes are checked.  Having named the last for ESPN #1 players when introduced as freshman/sophomores we take this position and title seriously – Patterson has grown and developed into potentially the nation’s best player in class and has done it by meeting very specific developmental milestones.

Documentation beats conversation and this past weekend Patterson produced stat-lines that included a 30-point, 16 – rebound, 2- assist effort against a tough Havoc Team and highlighted his weekend against the current #2 ranked player Ryan Conway putting up  25-points, 12-rebounds, 4-assit, 2-blocks, and a steal leading his team to a win – this head-to-head match-up was the statement Patterson has been looking to make for the past 24-months and he did it in impressive fashion averaging 20ppg and 11 rebounds over the weekend and 15ppg and 9 rebounds on the season – and he is literally getting better each time he steps onto the court!
