Trey Wade Commits To Arkansas
The Importer strikes again!
This time with Wichita State transfer Trey Wade. The Marietta, Georgia native started his career at UTEP then transferred to a JUCO school for 1 year before playing the last 2 seasons at Wichita State.
He is 6-6 and weighs 220 pounds. Wade has been a consistent starter for the Shockers the past 2 seasons.
Over his 3 seasons playing Division 1 basketball, Wade has averaged 7.1 points, 5.2 rebounds and 32.6% from 3.
He is the 5th transfer to call the Hogs this offseason.
I like this move for Arkansas for this reason:
You never know what can go wrong in a season. You never know who could be in foul trouble during a game. Personally, I like depth pieces that can defend and rebound. Trey Wade can do both. While I don’t know if he will have a big impact on the regular rotation, if needed, I believe he can be up to the task. This Arkansas team has plenty of scoring so a depth piece that defends is what I like to see with this spot.
Arkansas now has just 1 scholarship remaining. The question is, will they fill it? Will they wait until the draft deadline is over and bring in a player that decides to transfer late? Will they hold the scholarship over to the class of 2022? Time will tell, but more and more I am learning to trust what Eric Musselman is doing.
