Wellington guard Trent Frazier liked he what he saw on his visit to the University of Illinois over the weekend.
The Wolverines’ standout and four-star recruit committed to the Illini on Sunday, according to Wellington coach Matt Colin.
He picked Illinois over numerous Division I schools, among them Memphis, Georgia, Kansas State and Seton Hall.
“I’m so happy for Trent and his family,” Colin said. “He works so hard on his game to be the best he can be, and put himself in a position to being one of the best players in the country.
“Illinois did a fantastic job recruiting him by identifying him early and building a very strong relationship with him. I know it will be a perfect fit for Trent and the Fighting Illini.”
