Future St. Ignatius point guard Trey Mack proved this spring and summer to be one of the more intriguing incoming freshman guards in the state. The lefty has good size for the point guard position. He handles the ball extremely well and can get anywhere he wants on the floor with his quickness and explosive first step.
Mack attacks the basket consistently and uses his size to score through contact and get to the charity stripe. His jumper is a plus asset in the early stages especially inside the arc. He is a great rebounder for a guard. In the open floor he pushes the ball and weaves in and out of traffic making plays for himself and others. Mack plays with confidence and is a tough perimeter defender.
We caught up with the 2017 prospect to see how his spring and summer went with the Illinois Wolves 14U.
“In the spring we were just getting a feel for playing together as a team. The spring was one of the best parts of our season as we were playing up and winning championships. The summer it basically evolved as we were so close. Then we came back to our own age group.”
Next year he will be attending St. Ignatius and ultimately teaming up with their junior point guard Riley Doody. What is he excited for as a freshman?
“I am looking to advance the basketball part of the school. It is a great academic school. I know that they have some other good incoming freshman. I am looking to get a good education and put my name on the map in Chicago.”
Mack recently attended Purdue’s elite camp and will be a prospect to watch in the 2017 class in Illinois.
