The 2022 UNC Basketball recruiting class is off to a great start here as the month of July wraps up and we head into August. Head coach Hubert Davis has landed three commitments so far highlighted by a five-star center in Jalen Washington.

But don’t sleep on UNC’s other two commitments in four-star guard Seth Trimble and three-star center Will Shaver.

Over the weekend, Trimble and his AAU team wrapped up the Nike EYBL circuit at the Peach Jam in South Carolina and he was able to catch the attention of a national recruiting analyst. Which is great news for UNC fans as they await his arrival on campus next year.

Rivals recruiting analyst Rob Cassidy wrote on his standouts at the Peach Jam and mentioned Trimble, labeling him as “The Statement” for his play during the cycle. Cassidy praised Trimble and raved about the guard:

"Trrimble found himself matched up with touted Ohio State commit Bruce Thorntonon Friday morning and sent a message in front of dozens of college coaches that had gathered on court 1 to watch his Phenom U team take on Thornton and E1T1. Matched up with Thornton for the bulk of the game, Trimble turned in a 21-point, six-assist performance that saw him assert himself down the stretch and lead his squad to a comeback victory. Tremble boasts an incredibly high basketball IQ and rarely makes mistakes with the ball in his hands."

Cassidy wasn’t the only analyst that had high praise for Trimble during the event, either.

Stadium’s Jeff Goodman sent out this tweet saying he’s a big fan of Trimble’s game while he was at the Peach Jam:

Trimble is currently rated as a four-star recruit and a top 50 player per the 247Sports composite rankings. But with his play being elevated lately, he’s likely a candidate to see a rankings increase for the next edition. That’s great news for UNC fans and while he might not earn that fifth-star, he could be right there in the top 30 when its all said and done.

Next. What will the Tar Heels' 2022 class end up like?. dark
