Tre Johnson, No. 1 in 2024, Announces Top 6 Schools
Tre Johnson, the No. 1 prospect in the Class of 2024, has announced his top 6 schools.
The 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Lake Highlands (TX) is down to Alabama, Arkansas, Baylor, Kansas, Kentucky, and Texas. He has visited Alabama, Arkansas and hit Kentucky in January.
He broke down each school for On3.com:
Texas: “(Rodney Terry) and I have had a good relationship always. He was my dad’s assistant coach when he was at Baylor. So we’ve always had a good relationship and him getting the head coaching job is really good for him. He also lets his guards play and also uses the bigger guards in the post. The players (stood out on the visit). They all stay in the gym and it’s open 24/7.”
Baylor: “They are a guard school and they let their guards play. As long as they work on the shots they take in practice, then they’re good.”
Kentucky: “I was able to sit in on everything that happens the day before the game. The process of it. The game plan. My lead recruiter was KT Turner before he got the job at UT-Arlington, but now its Chin Coleman. I fit in well (with their playstyle). They let their guards play, as long as they play defense, they let their guards hoop.
“(John Calipari) is a cool, nice coach. He’s a player’s coach. He lets his players play.”
Arkansas: “They just a have good program. Some Dallas guys have went there and have been successful. They have a culture of winning.”
Kansas: “They use their guards. They’re going to let their guards play, regardless. They’re made off of defense and winning. They also win and I want to be around a winning culture.”
