Bryan Trimble, a Kansas City-area guard who had committed to and signed with Florida State before being released from his scholarship, has committed to St. John’s.
Trimble, a post-grad player at Sunrise Christian, is a 6’3”, 200 pound guard with solid athleticism and shooting skills. He had been committed to the Florida State program until FSU signed a McDonald’s All-American late, bringing the Seminoles up to 14 signed or rostered players... Trimble asked out of his Letter of Intent.
Trimble played for Raytown South outside of Kansas City before moving on to Sunrise in Kansas. The incoming guard played for the MoKan Elite AAU team, as soon-to-be-active transfer forward Marvin Clark did.
St. John’s will be welcoming a shooter and solid athlete to the squad, a player who should fill the backup role that Malik Ellison and Federico Mussini might have next season.
Being a freshman, of course, it is better to not expect the kind of production or skill that a player like Shamorie Ponds brought to St. John’s. But Trimble looks to be a solid and stable piece of the rebuild, a player who is likely to take on a bigger role in the years to come as talented players move on to professional opportunities.
