Tre Johnson is widely regarded as the top scoring guard in the 2024 class with everyone from Gonzaga to Kentucky to Baylor to Kansas, among many others, chasing him. This summer, Johnson dominated the Nike EYBL with Team Griffin (Oklahoma) after a stellar varsity debut in Lake Highlands (Dallas). Now, Johnson has agreed to give Sports Illustrated exclusive access to his world by chronicling everything from intimate details about his recruiting to his everyday life on a blog.
Hi what’s up world, I’m Tre Johnson and I’m launching my new blog with Sports Illustrated to give you a glimpse into my life on and off the court.
What’s been fun for me recently has been having college coaches come to our practices and watch us. It really makes us push each other and push ourselves, and that will only help us when the season starts.
I feel like the coaches are watching to see how hard you go behind the scenes because that’s what will make you special.
Some of the schools that came to see me were Kentucky, Baylor, Texas, and Illinois. We talk to the coaches after practice and that’s always great.
I like when they give me advice on what I can work on. I’m always absorbing those things because they are around the older guys all the time and they know what it takes to be the best.
I have already been on visits to Baylor, Texas and UCLA and will be arriving in Kansas or Arkansas before the season begins.
As a younger boy, I love visits!
Just seeing how big the campus and locker rooms are and meeting the coaching staff, it’s all fun!
It always amazes me how nice weight rooms and practice gyms are! They are all top of the line!
Apart from those schools, Gonzaga and Duke also contacted my father about me because he is my coach, so they can talk to him.
I love the hiring process right now.
I’m taking it all in stride; I want to go out and see all the campuses and meet the coaches and all that. I want to take it all in and get the full experience.
Since I am younger I have a lot of time to build relationships and be able to make the best decision when that time comes.
I am also open to the options in favor; I just keep my options open to everything at the moment.
My dad used to play at Baylor, and he said he loved it there, but ended up transferring to Midwestern State to play more.
My dad taught me everything I know, so having to be able to guide me through the whole process helps me a lot!
We just finished our first grading period at school and I did great! Got all A’s and B’s high so I’m proud of that. I work hard in the classroom. I think my favorite subject is art. It’s the most exciting thing for me right now.
I listen to a lot of different music, but at the moment I mainly listen to YoungBoy, Durk and No Cap.
I don’t have a lot of downtime, but I only watched Squid Game on Netflix!
That was fine, so I would definitely recommend it!
I’m not going to say much about it and give it away, but you should see it!
Okay guys, I have to get back to the gym, but I appreciate you taking the time to read and keep an eye out for the next one that’s coming up soon.
