FORT WORTH, Texas – TCU head coach Trent Johnson announced the signing of Lyrik Shreiner and Malique Trent Thursday to National Letters of Intent.
Shreiner, a 6-foot-3 guard from Arizona, will don the Purple and White next season after being named a three star prospect by both Rivals and ESPN. Shreiner played this last season at Hillcrest Academy in Phoenix where he averaged 25 points, seven rebounds and six assists per game. He originally starred at Westwind Prep Academy where he broke the Arizona high school state scoring record after shooting 26-of-27 from the field en route to a 65-point outing.
Trent comes to TCU after competing this last season at New Mexico Junior College. The 6-foot-2 guard, who will have three years to play, earned NJCAA All-American Honorable Mention accolades, as well as being named the NJCAA Freshman of the Year after averaging a team-leading 15.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game this past season. The No. 1 rated combo guard in junior college according to 247Sports, Trent is a three-star rated prospect and ranked in the top-20 nationally among junior college prospects. Originally from Portsmouth, Va., Trent shot 40 percent from behind the arc this season and led NMJC to a 23-9 overall record. Prior to his time in Hobbs, Trent redshirted at Norfolk State before transferring to New Mexico Junior College in 2014. He originally graduated from Norcom High School in Virginia where he was the Eastern District Player of the Year as a senior, while being named to the All-Eastern Region First Team after totaling 19.6 points per game and 6.4 rebounds a contest.
