UCLA lands Point Guard Trent Perry

Trent Perry the two-time California state champion and the Gatorade California Basketball Player of the Year has signed with UCLA. Perry, a 6-foot-4 guard at Harvard-Westlake School in Los Angeles previously signed with USC. However he reopened his recruitment after Andy Enfield left the program to become the head coach at SMU.

Perry chose UCLA over Virginia regardless of his recent visit to Charlottesville back in April. Perry said that “What attracted me was that there’s a good opportunity to turn things around after this past season, and I want to do that for my hometown.”

In his senior campaign for the 2023-24 season he averaged 18.6 points, 6.1 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game. Also, he shot 86 percent at the free throw line.

UCLA head coach Nick Cronin said “Trent has established himself as a dynamic playmaker, and we believe that he has a very high ceiling as his game continues to develop,” Cronin said in a statement. “We’re looking forward to having him in Westwood.”

Perry will be joining one other freshman Eric Freeny from Corona, California and five incoming transfer students Tyler Bilodeau, Skyy Clark, Eric Dailey Jr., Kobe Johnson and William Kyle III.
