Trey Doomes Makes WVU His Choice
West Virginia added a shooting guard to its basketball class of 2018 on Thursday afternoon when Trey Doomes announced his commitment. The 6-3 slasher choose the Mountaineers over finalists Georgia, USF and Middle Tennessee. He also had offers from Auburn, Georgia Tech, ECU, Mississippi and Buffalo as well as numerous other mid-majors.
A native of Acworth, Ga., Doomes played prior to this season at Allatoona High School. He transferred to The University School in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., which boasts a team of several highly-rated hoops prospects spread over the 2018, 2019 and 2020 classes. The Sharks have an extensive athletic program, and have sent a number of athletes to Division I schools.
Doomes is an effective scorer off the dribble, but also has excellent court vision, and a sense of when and where to deliver the ball. He is a versatile talent who doesn’t necessarily slot at one specific position, but gives a great deal of flexibility when inserted into the lineup. He played with Nike Team Florida on the AAU circuit this summer, and gained additional attention for his all-around offensive game.
Doomes visited West Virginia this past weekend and found much to his liking.
“Everything went well. I got to do and experience what a (West Virginia) player does,” Doomes told BlueGoldNews.com’s Jeff Cobb. ““I went on a campus and city tour, went to a nice dinner and hung out with Jevon Carter and some other great players. It was great visit overall!”
BlueGoldNews.com will have more on Doomes soon, including a breakdown of what he brings to the Mountaineer program.
