Trey Wade is a tough, physical swingman that recently transferred to Nevada. He has had some good games for Wichita State at times, but he’s been a relative underachiever in college basketball, as he hasn’t quite put up the numbers that were expected of him.
Also, he will really need to improve his jump shot and be more assertive on offense. Recently, he announced his intentions to transfer to Arkansas, and he will be a fifth-year senior in college basketball next season.
