Kirk Earlywine on Gross: "Trey had a solid freshman year and gained experience that will be invaluable. Now we need him to crank it up a notch. He needs to play harder for longer stretches, shoot a higher percentage, be a better rebounder, get to the free throw line more and reverse his assist-to-turnover ratio. I'm not sure if Trey grasps how difficult it is to be a really good player and how hard he needs to work every day. However, he is closer now than he was a year ago, so hopefully he's beginning to understand."

2007-08: As a true freshman, Gross scored in double figures 10 times and led the Eagles in scoring three times and assists on six occasions. Although the game and statistics didn't count, he scored 25 points in his collegiate debut in a 91-49 romp over NCAA Division III Pacific (11/3/07) in an exhibition game.

High School: Graduated from Edison High School in Stockton, Calif., in 2007. He averaged 21 points and 4.5 rebounds per game as a senior to earn Stockton Record All-Area honors when he led Edison to a 22-9 record and the quarterfinals of the NorCal Division I boys basketball playoffs. He led the Vikings to the Tri-City Athletic League title, their first boys basketball title since 1998-99 and the school's first TCAL crown in any sport. Gross hit a three-pointer with 1:25 left to give his team a seven-point lead in a title-clinching 61-56 win over the league leader at the time, St. Mary's. He then scored 23 points, six rebounds and three assists in a 70-54 victory over Folsom that advanced his team to the Sac-Joaquin Section championship game. He also earned all-tournament honors at the Tracy Winter Holiday Classic. Gross averaged 18 points and seven rebounds as a junior when he earned All-TCAL and all-area honors. His game high was 42 points and he earned all-tournament honors in all but one tourney he played in as a junior and senior.
