Sunday Headlines: Tre Johnson Edition

Johnson says he models his game after former Kentucky guards Devin Booker and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.

Tre Johnson USA Basketball

Good Sunday morning! Let’s get started.

Tre Johnson is highly regarded as one of the best class of 2024 prospects in the country. 247 Sports has Johnson as the No. 3 overall player in the country, who is down to a list of six schools — Kentucky, Baylor, Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, and Kansas.

Johnson spoke with KSR down at Peach Jam and spoke about Kentucky’s long history of putting freshman guards into the NBA:

“...Kentucky, I can be one of their one-and-done players. I can be one of the combo guards they use, help me improve so I can get to the draft...”

Johnson says he does model his game after former Kentucky guards Devin Booker and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.

Johnson is already scheduled to take another visit to Alabama and took an official visit to Lexington this past January.

As for a decision?

“Whenever I know where I want to go, I’ll probably commit the same day because I’ll know for sure,” he said.
