Five-star Tre Johnson visits Baylor, Alabama up next
By ADAM ZAGORIA
Five-star wing Tre Johnson took his official visit to Baylor this past weekend and it went well.
“The visit was great!” his father Rich told ZAGSBLOG. “They want him to come in and be a major part of their offensive and defensive schemes as they help develop him for the 2025 draft.”
One mock draft has Johnson projected as a top-5 pick in 2025.
The 6-foot-6 shooting guard from Link Academy (MO) is also planning trips to Alabama (Oct. 13) and Arkansas (Oct. 20), his father told ZAGSBLOG.
Johnson is working with a top six of Kentucky, Kansas, Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Baylor. He’s also said the NBA G League Ignite is an option.
He recently told Eric Bossi of 247Sports.com that he may wait until the spring to make a decision.
“I want to see what everybody has coming and how I could be used and which place is the best option,” he told 247. “It’s about what is best for me. It doesn’t really matter who somebody might go out and get or the transfer portal, we all have to fight for that one spot and I feel like if you are doing that against good guys and you get that spot then you are getting better overall.”
