Coaches trying to impress Trey

I have been covering Mt. Pleasant's district tournament all week and I have noticed some recognizable attendants this week.

- On Monday, Michigan coach John Beilein attended Trey's game against Midland Dow.

- On Wednesday, MSU coach Tom Izzo was at Trey's game against Midland. Izzo stood off to the side but was still constantly hounded by fans.

- On Friday, in perhaps the most impressive appearance, just hours after having his heart ripped out by Evan Turner, Beilein showed up in the second half of Zeigler's district final with Bay City Western. Still looking to be wearing the suit he coached in, Beilein showed that he wants Zeigler and perhaps needs him desperately.

Clearly both Michigan and Michigan State are still strongly after Zeigler and want him on their teams. Beilein may need him more than anyone as Michigan may lose its two top players while State clearly has plenty of talent to work with.

Obviously Trey's dad was in attendance on Monday and Friday as well and going to CMU is still an option for him, though I don't know how much of a realistic option it is.

Zeigler is expected to take some more visits following the end of his season and then making a decision in April.

Hit me with some stats.. what's his numbers for the season, game highs, big game moments, height, weight, position..?

"Beilein showed up in the second half of Zeigler's district final with Bay City Western, where he went 12 for 23 and scored a game high 27 with 3 boards and 4 steals...." or something of the sort using the actual stats, of course.

Well Frez,

Friday he had 28 points, 10 rebounds, three blocks, and three assists.

Wednesday he had 18 points and eight rebounds as he battled a flu bug.

Monday he had 34 points and nine rebounds and three steals in the win.

don't forget about the dunk over a kid on Wednesday, and the two handed off two feet after a rebound wasn't bad last night either, over a 6'8 kid. I was very surpised to see Coach B there Friday, but he does want him bad. As of now Trey's last two visits will be Providence and Duke, joining UCLA, OK, and Michigan. Of course he has been to MSU and CMU enough to know about both places. April 15, or a little before the world will know
