Baylor Decommit Kobie Eubanks Has Plenty of Suitors
By ZACH SMART
Attacking the rim with both hands, investing more energy into his defensive game, and levitating above the rim more than ever, Elev8’s Kobie Eubanks has become one of the nation’s most hotly pursued recruits.
A man-child 6-foot-5 wing, Eubanks has the body of a Big East recruit and the stroke of a kickout shooter. Scoring 37 points on a full arsenal of hard drives, shots from well beyond the arc and acrobatic finishes through traffic, Eubanks piloted Elev8 to a thorough 112-87 thrashing of FCI in Friday night’s Ballin’ At The Beach tournament.
Oregon, Missouri, Kansas, UCLA, Providence, Minnesota, Maryland, Louisville, UConn and myriad others have expressed an uptick of interest in the Fort Lauderdale native.
“There’s Oregon, Missouri’s still showing a lot of love, Louisville’s been loving it, Michigan just jumped in,” said Eubanks.
“I spoke a few words with Texas recently. I’m just taking it day by day.”
