A number of talented 2021 prospects inside the state of Wisconsin are continuing to stretch their legs this season with strong performances on a weekly basis.  One such talent is junior guard Kobe Johnson of Nicolet High School.

Equipped with a plus length 6-5 approaching 6-6 frame, Johnson has taken a giant leap forward in the past 12 months in all facets of the game.  Skill wise the talented guard handles the ball well, he sees the floor to create, and he’s shown an ability to score at each level consistently.  Physically he’s added a couple inches over the past year and his legs are starting to catch up as his athleticism and vertical explosion has trended upward as well.  Always an instinctive guard offensively, Johnson is also a solid on the ball and off the ball defender and he’s shown an ability and desire to take on the opponent’s top offensive threat with consistency while delivering solid results.  

A versatile prospect that can play multiple positions, Johnson is averaging over 20 points a game and almost 9 assists a contest this season for Nicolet, who currently sits at 16-3 on the season.  An example of Johnson’s growth is a scintillating 30 point 10 rebound 10 assist 8 steal performance in a victory earlier this month.  Still just starting to scratch the surface of this potential, Johnson’s following in the footsteps of his older brother as a late bloomer and his best basketball lies ahead.

He holds offers from DePaul, Indiana State, and UW-Milwaukee with a host of schools including, but not limited to, the likes of Minnesota, TCU, Bradley, Marquette, etc. also expressing interest.  Currently focused on trying to capture a second consecutive state championship, Johnson seems primed for a stellar spring and summer travel season and you can expect his recruiting stock to jump significantly if he continues to develop and produce in the same fashion as this season.

He plays with the Phenom University-Team Herro program during the grassroots travel season.
