Trier, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard ranked by Rivals.com as the 35th best player in the 2015 class, has scholarship offers from all four state schools and several top programs across the country.

“I will be transferring schools and moving out of Oklahoma,” Trier tweeted. “Where I am transferring has not been confirmed yet but I won't be here in OK.”

Trier is originally from Seattle and briefly lived in Dallas before moving to Oklahoma City as an eighth grader. He played two seasons for the homeschool OKC Storm. He averaged 30 points per game for NOAH, the Tulsa-based homeschool program, last season.

WEATHERFORD HIRES SPEARS

The Weatherford school board approved the hiring of Gerrett Spears as its boys basketball coach for the upcoming school year.

Spears spent last season with the Wichita State women's program as the Director of Basketball Operations. He held the same position at Drake University during the 2011-2012 season.

He takes over at Weatherford after Garrett Smith, who spent five seasons as coach, left the position in the spring. Smith will stay at Weatherford and continue coaching fast pitch softball and girls' golf.

Spears also spent two seasons as a Wichita State graduate assistant from 2009-2011, and served as an assistant at Fort Scott Community College from 2007-2009. He is a Garber High School graduate where he played under current Weatherford girls basketball coach Dusty Torrey.

Weatherford finished 9-14 in Class 4A last season.

WHITE RETURNS TO CACHE

Kenny White has returned to Cache for his second tenure as a coach, athletic director Lonnie Nunley said.

White was named the girls basketball and volleyball coach last week after spending the past four years at Tipton.

He led the Bulldogs to four straight girls basketball state tournaments from 2005-2009, finishing as state runner-up once. He also founded the volleyball program, leading Cache to the state tournament in four of the five seasons he coached.

Nunley also said he is no longer the boys basketball coach and the school has hired Zack Ange, who was previously White's assistant at Cache. He spent last season as the boys basketball coach at Hollis.
