So here's Tre Lexing:
Our newest, and final basketball recruit. From Evan Daniels with Scout
“Tre’Shaun Lexing was quite impressive today. Athletic wing with plenty of raw ability. Made mid-range shots too.”
From ESPN (free):
Lexing is a rangy left-hander who can stroke jump shots as well as take defenders off the bounce. He has a budding triple threat game and a terrific 1st step while attacking off the dribble. He is one of the few players at his age that possesses an affective ...
SI DOT COM:
6’6″, 180 pound Lincoln High standout (Tacoma, Washington) was named to the Tacoma News Tribune’s 2nd All-State Team last season. Tre’Shaun Lexing is a great scorer with solid athleticism, and he is a versatile player who can fill up the stat sheet and feasibly play at other positions. CU is getting a small forward with an excellent mid-range game and a solid outside jumper. Lexing also possesses a quick first-step, which makes him a dangerous scoring option.
The bottom line is that Tad Boyle loves versatile, multifaceted players. And that's what he gets (also wings who wear #11- Lexing, Jenkins, and Johnson all wore 11 in high school. Fun Fact) From Hoopniks:
I haven't seen Dustin Thomas but I love the multi-talent and versatility that Jaron Hopkins and Tre Lexing give Colorado in its '13 class.
Boyle is building a great lineup. But it's weird. Basically we've got Scott, SH-T, and Mills in the post, Stalzer and Talton at the point, and everyone else who can play multiple positions. Hopkins is a combo guard, Lexing is a wing, and Thomas is a combo forward. So there are options there. But I have no idea where the scholarships come from. Best guess is Animal Style goes pro and Mills "decides" to move on. I still want someone who can just drill it from 3.
