At 6-8 210 Trentyn Flowers possesses the athleticism and power to be a scoring threat inside or outside. He has a quick first step that allows him to take defenders to the basket quickly. He has point guard skills that allow him to make others around him better and he is willing to play that role with no problem. He is a solid defender and plays with a winners mentality throughout the game. He is ranked the 28th high school basketball prospect in the country by 247 sports, 26th by on3, 23rd by Rivals, and the 23rd ranked prospect by ESPN.
NBA Draft Room has him ranked as the 22nd prospect in the 2025 NBA draft. With the addition of Illinois star point guard transfer Skyy Clark a talent like Flowers can evolve into a lottery pick in the 2024 NBA draft under coach Kenny Payne. I talked with him about his NBA future, where he grew up, and more for NBA Draft Room.
