Champaign Centennial’s Trent Meacham Remains A Hot Item

August 5, 2003

Champaign Centennial’s Trent Meacham, who has been outstanding all spring and summer, continues to be a hot item among colleges looking for a point guard. Meacham’s Martin Brothers AAU squad capped off a stellar summer with a 2nd place finish at the 17-U AAU National Tournament.

The Illinois Class of 2004 is loaded with point guards, and Meacham solidified his position as one of the elite point guards in the state with his strong play. Meacham told Chicago Hoops that he felt that he played better and better as the summer went along.

Lots of schools are showing an interest in Meacham, who was the MVP of the Nike Memorial Day Classic back in May. His list of offers includes Dayton, Florida State, Vanderbilt, the University of South Florida and nearly the entire Missouri Valley Conference. Marquette, Notre Dame, Arkansas, Wisconsin, Purdue and Gonzaga all are showing interest, and made a point of watching him play during the July evaluation period.

The surprisingly quick Meacham is an outstanding shooter, with a strong handle and excellent passing instincts. His list of suitors grew each time he took the floor this summer. Meacham, Jimmie Binnie and Alex Thompson proved to be a formidable trio for Iowa-based Martin Brothers on this summer’s AAU circuit. The 6-9 Thompson has already verballed to Steve Alford and the Iowa Hawkeyes.
