After filling out team for the next year, Mike Woodson and the new Indiana coaching staff have now extended an offer to Seth Trimble of Menomonee Falls, WI. The 6-3, 185 lb point guard is currently ranked No. 78 overall per 247Sports Composite and is the No. 14 PG and top player from Wisconsin. His brother JP Tokoto was a standout player as well who played for UNC from 2012-2015. He was drafted in the second round by the 76ers in the 2015 draft.
Trimble is a rising senior and an outstanding student-athlete that specializes in a mid-range shot and an explosive game. According to WisSports.net, he has played 23 games in the past season and averaged 23.3 points per game with 5.9 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.6 steals, and 1.0 blocks per game. He also had an impressive 45 point game against Whitnall.
He describes his game as very balanced and his stats back up this statement. In an interview with Jake Weingarten he elaborates, “My game, I think I’m a really great all-around point guard. I like to get out in transition and make plays and get up and down the floor and score on the fast break. I love to step out and shoot the three. The defense has also been a big part of my game so I prioritize that too.”
Trimble now holds around 10 offers from a mix of high major and local schools. Some of the primary schools that have expressed interest and an offer include Purdue, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, California, and USC with Indiana joining the fray on April 26th. He has also stated that Michigan, Virginia, and Texas have also been in the mix with being in contact with him, but no news on an offer as of yet. Expect for his offers to keep coming in as he climbs the top prospect board and improves his game.
Under new head coach Mike Woodson, Indiana and Trimble appear to be a great match. Woodson, who has yet to coach a college game, wants to develop his team into one that can make 3-pointers and he wants to continue to find players who can make the deep ball.
Trimble appears to be another player has the potential to address this problem and develop his game under a NBA proven coach.
