In his sophomore season, Trey Wertz and four-star 2018 point guard Devon Dotson formed a dynamic duo for Providence Day (NC). The partnership was so profitable that the team was able to win a state title and establish itself as one of the top schools in North Carolina.

Listed as a shooting guard, Wertz can play several positions on the court and could be considered a combo guard. He is extremely talented, who since entering high school, has shown a great evolution of his game over the years.

With Dotson, Wertz gets a new role that he did not have before: a scorer role. By the way, this partnership with Dotson goes beyond the blocks. The two are great friends off the court and practically inseparable.

“I think playing together for a while has helped us form pretty good chemistry and I think we will only build on that this year,” Wertz told D1Vision. “I think we’re ready to take the next step.”

Last season in high school, Wertz averaged 19.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game. Despite those impressive stats, he’s already working for the next season on what he needs to improve.

“I just plan to build on the season from last year. I think for us to win more this year I’m going to have to up these numbers so I think our backcourt is primed for a big year,” said Wertz. “Honestly, I think every part of my game needs improvement. I can never get too good at something.”

Wertz manages space well on the court, has a consistent mid-range game, good on-court vision, great footwork, and finishes plays to near perfection. With a tremendous basketball IQ, Wertz helps his team on the defensive end and can score one-on-one.

On the AAU circuit, he plays for one of the strongest programs, Team Loaded on the adidas circuit, playing for the North Carolina branch.

Interestingly enough, his father, Langston Wertz Jr., covers high school basketball in North Carolina for the Charlotte Observer and inevitably, ends up writing about his son there.

When it comes to his recruitment, Trey already has offers from Yale, Harvard, Clemson, Temple, and Virginia Tech, among others and with his senior year upcoming, he still has time to receive more offers.

“I may cut my list here in the next couple weeks but I hope to commit in early November.” said Wertz.
