Keatts on Parker: “I think Trey is just scratching the surface of what he can become. He is an explosive athlete and probably one of the most entertaining high school basketball players out there, but there is a lot more to his game than just flash. He understands the game and he’s equally able to play with or without the ball. He has deep range on his jump shot, but is also shifty enough to create offensive opportunities for himself and others. He is coachable and will put the work in to get better, and I’m excited to get him in our program.”
