Don’t tell anyone. It’ll be our little secret.

Down in Texas, there’s a new Class of 2013 prospect who is generating a ripple in the vast ocean of college basketball recruiting. By the time the spring is over, that ripple may gather enough force and turn into a tidal wave of attention.

Tony Trocha (Houston, Texas/St. Thomas) came to Texas from Colombia. He’s been in class for two weeks. During that time, the head coach from Texas A&M came to school as did assistants from Providence and Wichita State. Ohio State, George Mason and Texas have plans to see him soon. What’s going on?
