Trier is a 6’4″ guard from Montrose Christian School in Rickville, Maryland. New assistant Kenny Johnson recruiting him when he was the assistant at Indiana.
247Sports.com consider Trier the 4th-best SG and the 22nd-best player in the 2015 class. Scout.com has him as their 5th-best shooting guard.
Scout.com says of him:
Trier projects as a power shooting guard. He already boasts a solid base and strong shoulders, and he utilizes his muscle to create space for jump shots. His jump shooting mechanics are nearly flawless. He releases a soft ball with a high arch and noticeable backspin. Trier lacks a supremely explosive first step, however, so he’s unlikely to enjoy deference from opponents who prioritize stopping his jump shot.
