High school senior Allonzo Trier’s path through the world of basketball recruiting has taken him to five cities in as many years. Next stop: Vegas.


The former OKC Storm standout may be the purest high school basketball scorer in the country, and the most devoted to his craft. He’s never attended a homecoming or prom, and he’s missed many other traditional high school experiences, because his mother Marcie taught him early on that if he wanted to live out his “American dream” he would have to be willing to go anywhere to do it.


So Trier has become one of the country’s most enterprising players, too. Basketball has taken him from Seattle to Dallas to Oklahoma City to Tulsa to Washington, D.C., in a span of five years.
