Trimble has major interest
One of the top high school programs in the country is Arlington (Va.) Bishop O'Connell. The school regularly produces top talent, and the next star to come from the program will be class of 2014 guard Romelo Trimble. At 6-foot-2 with an ability to really score, Trimble is already garnering a lot of attention, and now he is working hard to improve his game. "I had a good year," said Trimble. "I improved from last year, but as a team we had an up and down season after we lost a couple of players. We had some good games and then other games we didn't play together." He continued, "I feel I scored the ball very well, and then I improved my defense and my ball handling. Right now I am just working on being more of a point guard since it is what I want to transition into." Recruiting wise schools such as Maryland, Georgetown, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Villanova, West Virginia, Rutgers, Massachusetts, and North Carolina State are all in heavy pursuit. Trimble has made visits to Georgetown, Rutgers, Virginia Tech, and NC State so far. Rutgers has a strong tie to the Washington D.C. area through assistant coach David Cox, and already they made a strong impression on Trimble. "It was a good environment," said Trimble of Rutgers. "I had a good time up there and I got to hang out with Jerome Seagears who plays there and is a close friend of mine. I really enjoyed myself." Likewise the hometown Georgetown Hoyas have also done a good job in this recruitment. "I think it is a good program," said Trimble. "I like the way they run their offense and also I really like the campus as well as Coach John Thompson." Also Trimble has been very impressed with the run NC State has gone on this season leading them to the Sweet 16. "They did real good this year obviously beating Georgetown and making the Sweet 16," said Trimble of the Wolfpack. "I like the campus and the atmosphere in their arena." While not near a decision, Trimble does say that he is looking for a program that fits his style of play and will embrace his particular skill set.
