If head coach Mike Woodson is serious about getting his offense moving downhill with velocity, he may have just found his man in class of 2022 point guard Seth Trimble.
Trimble is off to a fast start playing AAU basketball this spring, and on Monday night he announced an offer from Indiana on his Twitter page.

Trimble is currently ranked No. 78 overall in the class of 2022 according to the 247Sports Composite. He is the No. 14 point guard nationally in the class and the top player in Wisconsin according to that same service. He is the younger brother of former North Carolina player and current overseas professional J.P Tokoto.
Trimble attends Menomonee Falls High School in the Milwaukee area. As junior he led the school to a 17-8 record. Trimble averaged 23.3 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game during the 2020-21 season. He shot 54.6 percent overall from the field, 35.1 percent from three-point range and 75.2 percent at the free throw line.
The 6-foot-2 Trimble plays AAU basketball for Phenom University – Team Herro on the Nike EYBL circuit.
247Sports’ national analyst Eric Bossi gave this assessment of Trimble after watching him at an AAU event a couple weeks ago:
“There simply aren’t many more athletic floor generals than him,” Bossi wrote. “He plays in attack mode and it is borderline impossible for any defender to stay in front of him.”
To this point Trimble’s offer list includes high majors Arizona State, California, Creighton, Illinois, Iowa, Iowa State, Marquette, Nebraska, Purdue, TCU, USC and Wisconsin.
Based on comments in multiple interviews, Trimble appears to want to play in an up-tempo oriented program, something that no doubt makes him appealing to IU, and something that could ultimately make it difficult for the home state Badgers and their half court oriented style.
After a strong start to the spring, look for Trimble’s options to continue to grow.

The first highlight reel is from this past weekend in Louisville at the Grassroots Showcase, where he generated considerable buzz. Further below are highlights from Trimble’s junior season of high school basketball.
