NCAA | Tre Johnson chooses to join Texas

Since the two “finalists” in the race for his recruitment were Texas (campus in Austin) and Baylor (campus in Waco), we already knew that Tre Johnsonoriginally from Dallas, would not leave the “Lone Star State”.

It therefore remained to be seen whether the Longhorns or the Bears would secure the services of the young local talent, ranked 4th among the best players in his age group (2024) by ESPN. During a program on the American channel this Wednesday, the 17-year-old winger made his decision and announced that he would join the program at the start of the 2024 school year, now coached by Rodney Terry, since the dismissal of Chris Beard in December last.

I have an excellent relationship with the staff. I made several visits, and we developed a very good connection “, he thus assured. “ I project myself alongside them. »

Still only 17 years old, Tre Johnson is already a player referenced in the youth categories: for example, he was a hit on the EYBL circuit last season, averaging 18.8 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game, or even in the FIBA ​​context last summer during the U19 World Cup (11.1 points at 50% on shots).

The future Longhorns player is therefore, in short, a headliner of the university class of 2024, in which he has everything to establish himself as the clear number 2, behind the untouchable Cooper Flagg, who “jumped a class” this summer before announcing an expected commitment to Duke.
