Clarence Trent update

As was discussed here over the weekend, forward Clarence Trent, formerly of Gig Harbor High and now at Findlay Prep in Henderson, Nev., took his official visit to UW over the weekend.
According to this report today from Scout.com, Trent says he has narrowed his choices to UW and Cal and will make a decision in the next two weeks.
In the story, Trent calls the UW visit “great” and notes that he likes UW because it has a sports medicine major, a reason he is also interested in Cal. He visited Cal on Aug. 30 and said that “right now I’m just breaking each trip down and seeing what I liked about them and see which one is a better fit for me.”
One web site, however, thinks Trent has already made his decision. HuskyDigest.com says it has sources reporting that Trent has already given his verbal commitment to UW coach Lorenzo Romar.
Due to NCAA rules, Romar can’t say anything, so if Trent has committed, it would have to come from him or someone close to him. The Scout.com story obviously indicates he isn’t ready yet to make a public declaration, though it’s apparently coming soon.
If Trent does end up at UW — and obviously there’s a good chance if it’s publicly down to just two — he would be the third member of the school’s Class of 2009, joining shooting guard C.J. Wilcox and JC forward Charles Garcia.
Trent would join Garcia in providing some needed bulk up front with Jon Brockman and Artem Wallace each leaving after this season.
Scout.com lists Trent as the No. 27 power forward prospect in the country. It also lists him at 6-7, 200 pounds. I’ve heard a more realistic updated weight for him is in the 230-range.
Rivals.com lists Trent as the 143rd best prospect in the country overall and No. 37 among power forwards.
It’s though the Huskies will take four commits for the Class of 2009, so if Trent does join the fold, the Huskies would have one left.
