Trey Gaines is a sensational senior athlete out of Beggs, Oklahoma.
The senior playmaker is a point guard for his basketball team, and is looking to play the same position at the next level.
Standing at 6’1.5, 160 pounds Gaines gives us a size comparison to Trae Young, point guard from the Atlanta Hawks.
While his team may not have gotten the finish to the season that they originally envisioned, Gaines feels happy with what they were able to accomplish.
“Our season goal was to make it to the state tournament,” Gaines said. “Once we accomplished that goal, it became clear that the next goal was to win the state championship. Unfortunately, we came up short in the state championship game.
“I feel like we got better as a team over time, and as a result, we were able to shock some people with what we accomplished. I was very pleased with what we did this year.”
During that sensational senior season, Gaines would average 15 points per game for his team, as well as 5 rebounds per game, and 4 assists per game.
Aside from the stats, Gaines knows that it is important to separate himself by what he can do as a student-athlete, so that he gets recognition to play at the collegiate level.
“I will say a big thing about me, is that I am stronger than I look,” Gaines said. “I also bring a ton of energy to my team at all times. I also like to think that I am an effective leader on and off the court.
“What really makes me standout, is my length and my ability to play defense. I can get up and finish the ball and put my teammates in great position to score as well. If needed, I can also knockdown a three.”
Wow, sounds like Gaines is the complete package!
Gaines is another prospect that we have written on with our new partner, NSA Prospects, which is a wonderful company that helps hoopers gain attention from college coaches.

With a 3.62 GPA in the classroom, Gaines should be able to gain some interest from a college before graduating, and we are excited to see where he plays next!
