Bryan Trimble listed as an under-the-radar freshman to watch

The incoming Trimble will certainly see minutes on a nine-man active squad

In the run up to the season, Jon Rothstein of FanRag sports has been making lists (and checking them twice)?

And incoming freshman Bryan Trimble has made the list of 20 Under-the-Radar Freshmen to watch:

Bryan Trimble, St. John’s: Former Florida State commit scores 10-12 points just by getting out of bed in the morning and could wind up as a valuable reserve for Chris Mullin. Don’t be shocked if Trimble has the same type of long term impact on the Red Storm program that current sophomore Myles Powell is projected to have at Seton Hall.

Now let’s be clear: if Trimble scores 10-12 points per game, he won’t be under anyone’s radar, he will either be a superstar in waiting or something has gone horribly wrong with the St. John’s Red Storm.

With 34 points per game coming from Marcus LoVett and Shamorie Ponds, minutes from Justin Simon and Bashir Ahmed, Trimble should be expected to get spot minutes to start the season. He should not be playing 20+ minutes per night like Myles Powell did as a freshman.

BUT.

If Trimble can be either an effective three-point shooter or a defender - or both - his 6’3” frame will get some minutes on the court. And if he can be a threat, opponents will have to manage a constant barrage of scoring from the outside.

It’s a nice note from FanRag. Do you think Bryan Trimble can be a legitimate threat?

We’ll start finding out with the exhibition games. Trimble will certainly need to be competent, given the nine-man active squad (with three sitting out and one open scholarship).
