Once strictly a catch-and-stick guy, Elev8 Academy’s Kobie Eubanks
knack for putting the ball on the deck, creating off the dribble, and ambidextrous passing ability has rendered the well-built 6-foot-5 guard one of the nation’s most hotly-pursued recruits.
Eubanks scored 15 points in under 13 minutes on Thursday, as Elev8 coasted to a wire-to-wire 85-48 throttling of Virginia Tech’s J.V. Elev8 overcame a lackluster start, hiking up the defensive pressure en route to the sloppy blowout.
The post-grad said he was appreciative of Oregon head coach Dana Altman’s
appearance and is considering all five potential destinations one at a time.
“The love is pretty good from Oregon,” said Eubanks, who visited Oregon Jan. 22-24.
“Everyone there is cool. It’s a good set up. It’s a good situation, but it’s not the only option. They have a need for my position in every program I’m considering right now. So, I’m just trying to evaluate these schools as I go along.”
Since de-committing to Baylor, the Fort Lauderdale, Fla. native has narrowed his choices down to Georgia, Missouri, Texas, Oregon, and UCLA.
“I plan on a visit next week to Georgia and maybe the following week to UCLA,” said Eubanks, whose deft long-range shooting and ability to get into the lane with ease has improved his scoring pace significantly.
