Sophomore guard looks to follow in footsteps of alumni

Trent Forrest has shown that he is capable of being the next great guard for Alabama Challenge, a team that has been a home to Devin Booker, Ralston Turner, Malcolm Armstead, KT Harrell, and Ronald Nored.

Forrest, a rising junior standing at 6-foot-4, currently averages 12 points and 3.4 rebounds per game on the circuit, which was highlighted by a 20 point performance in a 79-76 win over The City Rocks two weekends ago in Frisco.

“I feel like I’ve had some good all-around games,” Forrest said. “It was a pretty solid weekend for us, going 2-2.”

With the two wins coming over St. Louis Eagles and the Rocks from Albany, Forrest says that it was a learning experience playing against a top player in Jayson Tatum.

“It was a great experience,” Forrest said. “It shows me how hard I have to work to get to that level.”

The scoring guard was extremely impressive in Hampton, stuffing the stat sheet for The Challenge. In four games, the 6-foot-4 scoring guard averaged 22,5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists.

If Forrest continues to work, he will become more and more of a hot commodity as the summer carries on.

“Maryland, Xavier, Duke, Alabama and Tennessee have shown interest,” Forrest said. “I have offers from Oregon State, Florida State and Tennessee. Florida State and Alabama are showing the most interest right now though. I just want a place that fits my style of play, and a place where I could get a good education.”

Forrest has the potential to become one of the best two way players in the country, his ceiling is extremely high, and he should continue to show that this weekend in Minneapolis.
