Adam Zagoria is reporting that UK Recuit Tony Trocha will enroll in a college in December, and that and he still holds a Kentucky offer after it appeared they had moved on. The native of Colombia is a long, athletic big man who runs the floor very well and can score in a variety of ways while displaying descent ball-handling skills, making him the prototypical dribble-drive player that UK runs. His legal guardian, Jamie Ibanez, had this to say regarding Trocha’s recuiting:
Tony is still taking intensive English classes for seven hours per day and preparing for the SAT. He is planning to enter college in the Spring semester. Kentucky, UCLA, Florida, Texas A&M and Rice all say they have scholarships for him for the second semester.
He also added that the family has no college visits currently planned. John Calipari was among a number of college head coaches who flew down earlier this year to see Trocha play an open gym in Houston, so Cal has a good idea of what he can potentially offer. During the summer, Trocha played with the Colombia U18 team at the FIBA Americas Championship in Brazil, and led Colombia with 16.0 points and 10.2 rebounds per game. He would be a very nice addition to what is looking like a potentially historic 2013 class, though he would technically be a 2012 recruit.
