Trent says he’s coming to UW

Clarence Trent gave validity to the rumors of the past few days by saying this afternoon that he has committed to UW.
Trent, a 6-7, 230-pound power forward who played at Gig Harbor High before moving to Findlay Prep in Henderso, Nev., told Scout.com that he chose UW in part because of “how I got along with the coaches. I got along with the coaches and I feel really comfortable around coach (Lorenzo) Romar.” HuskyDigest.com speculated Wednesday night that Trent had singled out UW, and other sources had indicted that Trent was on his way, as well. Rivals.com also has a story reporting Trent to UW.
Trent becomes the third member of UW’s Class of 2009, joining shooting guard C.J. Wilcox and JC transfer forward Charles Garcia. The Huskies are likely to take one more in this class.
UW coaches had wanted to get at least two big men in this class to help fill the void that will be created when Jon Brockman and Artem Wallace graduate after this season.
Trent visited UW over the weekend and had also recently visited Cal, ultimately choosing the Huskies over the Bears. He is rated as the No. 77 prospect in the country by Scout.com and the No. 27 power forward
