According to Mark Zeigler of the San Diego Union Tribune Navarro Community College point guard Trey Pulliam was on an official visit this past weekend. The 6-3 Pulliam was on hand for the victory over the Boise State Broncos.
Pulliam went to high school at A&M Consolidated in College Station, Texas. After not garnering a division one scholarship he decided to head to Navarro Community College in Corsicana, Texas. This season while playing for Navarro, ranked the #23 team in the nation by JucoRecruiting.com, he is averaging 12.5 points and 5.4 assists on the season. He is shooting 53.6% from the field and 39.6% from three-point range. Interest in Pulliam has recently begun heating up, but he is still a bit under the radar, as he is not ranked in the top 100 junior college prospects in the nation.
Watching film of Pulliam I walked away impressed by what I saw. The first thing that stood out was how well Pulliam saw the floor and found his teammates. His game was simple and fundamentally sound. When it came to his offense, Pulliam was able to score from all three levels, but I was most impressed by his ability to score off the bounce. I see what the coaches see in him and while his stats are not eye-popping, the film is.
In regards to his visit, Pulliam made the Aztecs his first visit and seems extremely interested in the Aztecs. Zeigler interviewed Pulliam at halftime of the game and asked about his thoughts on San Diego State.
“I wanted to come visit here first and see what it was about. This is my favorite school right now. I just wanted to check it out… Growing up I always used to see San Diego State on TV. They always had players I liked watching. It always caught my attention. And I like the coaches.”
Pulliam would like to commit in March when his season ends and is drumming up interest from schools in the Big-12 and Pac-12. The Aztecs are in a good spot and could really use a couple of guards in the near future. San Diego State’s starting backcourt will graduate this year and Malachi Flynn and Adam Seiko will be the only guards on the roster. Santa Clara transfer Ke’Jhan “KJ” Feagin will be visiting this week and the Aztecs are also looking at possibly adding a 2020 guard. So the position could fill up, but with two years of eligibility left Pulliam would be a great addition.
