After Morehead State won the Ohio Valley Conference and competed with an extremely talented West Virginia team in the NCAA tournament, the future looks incredibly bright for Coach Preston Spradlin and the Eagles. Coach Spradlin and the staff have been busy on the recruiting trail to construct a talented squad to win the OVC again. The latest commit is 2022 point guard Trent Scott, who also had offers from Jacksonville and Mercer.
We had the opportunity to speak to Trent Scott about his decision to commit to Morehead State:
First off, what drew you to Morehead State over all of your other offers?
“I had a strong connection with the coaches, and felt really comfortable there.”
You took an official visit to Morehead State earlier, what was that experience like and how much do you like the facilities?
“I had a great time, I got along with the players really well and the facilities are really nice.”
What were some of the challenges of the recruitment process?
“Deciding whether or not the school was the right fit for me. It was a tough decision because both visits I went on were great, but I believe I made the right choice.”
What’s your favorite part about Coach Spradlin and the surrounding coaching staff at Morehead State?
“My favorite part about the staff is that they’re really funny.”
What do you feel like you’ll bring to an already talented Morehead State squad?
“I think I’ll bring scoring, but also my IQ and I’m just a dog.”
Morehead State had a tournament appearance last year after winning the OVC, how much did that guide you to Morehead State?
“It definitely drew me closer to Morehead because it showed me how good the program was.”
What do you want to do personally and as a team during your time spent at Morehead?
“Personally, I want to get freshman of the year in the OVC conference and get to the pro level later on,” Scott said. “But as a team I want to win another OVC championship.”
