“I will be in Texas tomorrow #turnup #warready,” he Tweeted Thursday.
He’s also considering UCLA, Missouri and Georgia and others.
“Kobie’s advantage is he can play in multiple offenses,” Elev8 coach Chad Myers told SNY.tv contributor Zach Smart. “He’s improved tremendously at coming off ball screens. He’s evolving as a scorer and at the mid-post, putting the ball on the deck a little more.”
**As previously reported here, 2015 Burlington (N.J.) Life Center point guard Traci Carter visits Xavier this weekend for the Creighton game on Saturday after tripping to Marquette last weekend.
Carter is in the process of trimming his list to five schools and will also visit UConn and Memphis, with a fifth visit to be determined.
**Also as previously reported here, 2016 Fort Lauderdale (FL) Cardinal Gibbons small forward Maverick Rowan will trip to Louisville for the Virginia game on Saturday.
“For me, I want to play in my freshman year,” Rowan told SNY.v last week. “I want to play in March when it matters.”
Rowan is currently averaging 28.2 points and 5.8 rebounds a game.
Rowan currently has offers from North Carolina, Gonzaga, Miami, Oklahoma, Penn State, UNLV, NC State, Florida, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Florida State, Iowa State, Pittsburgh, Virginia and UCLA.
**North Carolina will host a slew of high-profile recruits for Saturday’s Duke game, a source confirmed to SNY.tv. The list includes Dennis Smith Jr., Harry Giles, Tony Bradley, Jalek Felton, Seventh Woods, Matt Coleman and Brandon Robinson, Blake Harris and Luke Maye. Brandon Ingram may attend also depending on his playoff schedule.
**Teyvon Myers, a 6-3 guard from Williston (N.D.) State College who is originally from New York, visits West Virginia this weekend and Louisville March 12, according to the New York Post.
**Nolan Narain, a 6-10 Canadian forward from La Porte (IN) La Lumiere, visits San Diego State this weekend, he Tweeted: “Off to San Diego.”
“He’s 6-10 with a 7-3 wingspan,” associate coach Brad Johnstin said. “He’s very skilled, can step out to 3 in pick-and-pops or trailing the play for a throwback 3. He rebounds really well out of his area and has great timing on blocking shots. He’s a really high character kid who has gotten a lot tougher since he’s been at La Lumiere.”
**Narain’s teammate, Munis Tutu, a 6-foot 2015 point guard, committed to Loyola Marymount, according to multiple reports.
**Per Evan Daniels, 6-foot-10 2015 German forward Moritz Wagner will visit Michigan this weekend. He has no scholarship offer yet
