Top-50 senior Trent Perry picks the Trojans


Trent Perry, the 50th overall prospect in 2024, has committed to USC. The Trojans beat out Colorado, Gonzaga, Oregon, Stanford and TCU for the 6-4 guard's services.





 Perry burst onto the national scene after a massive Junior campaign at Harvard-Westlake (CA). After earning All-Mission League MVP honors, he went on to put together a big spring and summer on the EYBL with Vegas Elite. Long been a talented shooter with promising instincts as a playmaker, the potential has begun to materialize into production this last year as he’s sprouted athletically, added some strength and grown more refined in his combo-guard skillset.


 Back in August, Perry told our Travis Graf, "I have a good relationship with USC and they play fast. They go through their guards and let their guards really go — Isaiah Collier, Boogie Ellis, even Drew Peterson last year. They let their guards play and let them be themselves. I just have a really good relationship with them and Coach Capko as well."


 With Perry and Liam Campbell now in the fold, the focus turns towards sealing the deal with Cali-based, Slovakian wing Sebastian Rancik. After bringing in a deep class in 2023, the Trojans may just look for one more additional prospect through the high school ranks. Vyctorius Miller may also be an option.




Big win for USC to keep Perry home, as a number of programs from across the map got involved this summer. Over the last year, I've been impressed by Perry's ability to toggle through roles and bring value depending on the context. With Harvard-Westlake, the 6-4 guard serves as the primary trigger man playing out of ball screens and generating advantages. Yet, it was unclear how it'd translate at the EYBL level, where most prospects are used to having the ball in their hands on a high usage diet in high school ball. Perry scaled seamlessly to the EYBL while playing on arguably the most talented roster in the country, bringing immense value as a connector, table-setter and pure combo threat in the backcourt. He put up 12 points and 3 assists per game while shooting 37% from three and leading Vegas Elite in steals. Over the past two summers in the EYBL, he's connected on 89% of his free throw attempts (119/134). Exceptional touch, on/off ability, a strong feel for the game and more upside to tap into as his frame continues to evolve in a collegiate weight room. High floor, high upside get in the Top-50 SoCal product.
