OREM — Utah Valley has added another junior college transfer to Mark Madsen’s second-year lineup.
Snow College freshman Trey Farrer has signed with the Wolverines for the 2020-21 season, the university announced this week in conjunction with the NCAA’s signing period.
Farrer, a 6-foot-9, 235-pound post from St. George, averaged 12.8 points and 5.8 rebounds in 32 games last year at Snow College, helping the Badgers to a second-place finish in the Region 18 tournament to in-state rival Salt Lake Community College. A first-team All-Scenic West Conference and All-American honorable mention, Farrer will have three seasons of immediate eligibility beginning this fall.
“Trey is 6-foot-9 and the ultimate finisher,” Madsen said. “Opposing teams did everything they could to limit him, and yet Trey consistently scored in many ways — from the post to outside shots. One conference game, he went a perfect 14-for-14, not missing a single shot.
“When I first watched Trey in person, his motor really stood out. He’s got a V-8 engine, always ready to do hard work. Trey’s footwork is years ahead of his experience level.”
A former first-team all-state performer at Pine View High School, Farrer helped the Panthers to the 2015 state title and averaged 20.4 points, 9.1 rebounds, 2.7 blocks and 1.3 assists per game as a senior. He was the leading scorer in Region 9 that year, and also won his school’s Pursuit of Excellence Award.
