RICHMOND, Ky. – The Eastern Kentucky University men’s basketball team has signed 5’11” Wichita State transfer Trevin Wade for 2021-22, head coach A.W. Hamilton announced on Tuesday.

A native of Marietta, Georgia, Wade played high school basketball at Montverde Academy in Florida. He helped lead Montverde to the 2018 Geico High School National Championship. He also won the 2018 Beach Ball Classic Dunk Contest.

“Trevin is a very athletic guard who competes at a high level on both ends of the floor,” Hamilton said. “He’s tremendous in transition, not only with scoring but also with making plays for others. Trevin is a perfect fit for our style of play and comes in with college experience. Expect him to have an immediate impact.”
