Trey Autry, the son of Syracuse basketball associate head coach Adrian Autry, performed at a really high level during the two recent live periods on the AAU circuit, and that has led more high-major scholarship offers to roll in for him.

Trey Autry, a 6-foot-3 point guard/shooting guard, attends the Western Reserve Academy in Hudson, Ohio. In AAU events, he suits up for the Albany City Rocks in Nike’s EYBL league.

When college coaches, recruiting analysts, scouts and others were allowed to watch high-school prospects in person last month during two NCAA live periods, experts say that Autry was a big-time stand-out for the Albany City Rocks.

Autry, a member of the 2023 class, already has around 11 offers from a range of college teams. And I absolutely could envision his offer sheet growing, and rather quickly.

So will Syracuse basketball end up offering 2023 guard Trey Autry?

Given his stellar performances on the AAU circuit, I’ve seen a lot of comments from my fellow ‘Cuse fans on social media and in chat rooms lately discussing whether Orange coaches might ultimately offer Autry.

Of course, we’ll have to wait and see on that. I have no idea myself. What’s more, because I’m not in the inner circle of either Autry or the Syracuse basketball coaching staff, it’s unclear to me whether the team has interest in Autry, or by extension, whether Trey Autry has interest in suiting up for a ‘Cuse squad where his dad is a top assistant coach.

Honestly, though, whether the Orange is in Autry’s future or not, it’s beautiful to see his recruitment taking off. According to recruiting services and his Twitter page, Autry’s present offers include from Maryland, Nebraska, Rhode Island, Saint Joseph’s, UC Santa Barbara, Florida International, Bryant, UMass, Towson, UMBC and Siena.

Autry’s teammate at both the Western Reserve Academy and the Albany City Rocks is Damarius Owens, a 6-foot-7 guard/forward in the 2024 cycle who was offered by Syracuse basketball not too long ago.

Owens and Autry each appeared to raise their stock on a national scale with their play in the April live periods, according to recruiting analysts and scouts.

In a recent article, 247Sports national analyst Dushawn London wrote that Autry “is completely open to all schools with no timetable for a decision.”

Western Reserve Academy head coach Pete Hutchins told London that Autry is a good shooter, moves well without the ball and has great size for a junior in high school.

"This quote from Hutchins, though, truly resonated with me. He said of Trey Autry, “The main thing coaches say about him is that he’s a big guard who can play multiple positions and shoots it very well. The other factor that’s extremely important is that he’s a high character kid and he’s one of the hardest workers I’ve coached. This kid is earning it and he lives in the gym.”"

Wishing Autry nothing but wonderful things in his recruiting process, and we’ll of course continue to keep an eye out for whether Syracuse basketball enters into the mix for him.
