Mount Zion Prep’s Jamaal Trice, a 6-foot-6 shooting guard, committed to Connecticut on Wednesday, according to coach Stephen Baines.
Trice, a graduate of Santa Ana (Cal.) Mater Dei, is averaging 26.2 points and 6.3 rebounds for Mount Zion’s post-graduate team.
“He is a fabulous shooter,” Baines said. “The Connecticut coaches believe he can make an immediate contribution.”
Trice plays on Durham school’s prep team, not its better known national high school team.
Incidentally, Karron Johnson, the leader of Mount Zion’s national team and a candidate for All-America honors, has transferred from Mount Zion, according to Baines.
