Trent brings significant size and strength to our roster, along with the ability to stretch the floor and a tenacity under the bucket will greatly benefit our team. Having played four seasons in the Big Ten, he will be able to pull from his experience facing some of the top players in the country when going against the talented bigs in the Atlantic 10.
