Richmond’s Jon Trawick is first in Mott’s 2011 class

Posted: May 20, 2011 by Jared Field in JUCO

Mott Community College has signed its first recruit for the 2011 class, Richmond (Indiana) senior Jon Trawick. He’s a slasher/scorer with D-1 potential. Mott has a lot of scholarships to give, so expect the signings to come fairly rapidly over the next couple months.

From the Palladium-Item:

Jon Trawick chose Mott Community College in Michigan for a few different reasons.

But, each one of those reasons will ultimately lead, he hopes, to the same place — Division I basketball.

Trawick, Richmond’s third all-time leading scorer, made his college choice official Thursday at Tiernan Center, and it’s one of the top junior colleges in the country.

“It feels good to finally know where I was going. I was kind of holding out on the decision,” said Trawick, who was a two-time Palladium-Item Player of the Year. “I’m just ready to stay in the gym, keep working out and get through this summer and hopefully make some things happen.

“I see myself as a DI player. In the middle of the season I had two or three schools close to offering me, but I really never got that offer.”

What Trawick has to offer is a multi-dimensional game with room to grow.

For the better part of four seasons, the 6-foot-2 wing has been a fixture for the Red Devils, especially when it came to scoring.

Trawick capped his career with 1,277 points, trailing only Woody Austin (1,990) and Dominic James (1,652) on the all-time list.

“I think this is just a really intelligent and great decision, because he’s going to play Division I basketball at the junior college level. This is the top of the junior college food chain,” said RHS coach Joe Luce. “He’s going to have the chance to move on.”
