WVU Basketball Recruiting

Highly Touted 5-Star G Trentyn Flowers Had ‘Good’ Experience Visiting WVU



West Virginia hosted 2024 5-star guard Trentyn Flowers on an unofficial visit on Saturday. Flowers (6-foot-9, 180 pounds) is ranked No. 8 in the country in his class by 247 Sports and the No. 1 prospect from Virginia. WV Sports Now caught up with Flowers to discuss his experience while visiting West Virginia.

“I was able to watch some of the guys work out, see how they go about some of their training. I talked to coach Huggins and was able to take pictures,” he said. “It was a good visit.”

WVU’s coaching staff gave Flowers a tour of the practice facility and the coliseum. Flowers, along with other visitors Matthew Gilhool and Alier Maluk, watched the current players practice and lift in the weight room. WVU head coach Bob Huggins spoke with Flowers, teaching the recruit about what West Virginia basketball is all about.

Huggins told Flowers about the former players that have come through the program over the years and the rising junior was asking the Hall of Fame coach about the history of the program.

“They’re just looking for hard-working guys and great character. Work hard in the weight room, on the basketball floor and how to show great character outside of basketball,” Flowers said.

Flowers is entering his junior year at Rosedale Christian Academy in Maryland. Flowers attended Sierra Canyon (CA) and Huntington Prep (WV) during his first two years of high school. At Huntington Prep, Flowers averaged 18.9 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.0 steals per game. Flowers shot 46 percent from the field his sophomore year.

“My strength is versatility. I can pass, shoot, rebound and block shots. I can do everything well, that’s where my game is and what I bring to a team. I’m going to do everything it takes to win,” Flowers said.

Flowers has a great connection with current WVU freshmen Josiah Davis and Josiah Harris. While Flowers was at Huntington Prep, Davis would come and work out.

“Josiah Davis and Jojo Harris; those are my guys,” Flowers said.

Flowers, like Maluk, another unofficial visitor on Saturday, was impressed with the facilities. The 5-star recruit took away from his visit that the basketball facilities are top-notch at WVU.

“Just the whole practice facility in general, between the weight room and the dining hall,” Flowers said. “With all they had, it was a beautiful facility and it was super nice.”

Up next for Flowers is planning to officially visit Georgia Tech and Oregon, he told WV Sports Now. So far, Flowers has taken unofficial visits to Georgetown and West Virginia.

Many schools around the country are in pursuit of Flowers. The junior has received offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Cincinnati, Florida, Georgetown, Georgia, Georgia State, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Iona, Kansas, Kansas State, LSU, Maryland, Memphis, Michigan, Missouri, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, UNLV, USC, West Virginia and Xavier. Flowers has picked up interest from Duke, North Carolina and UCLA as well.
