Bobcats get a commit from Tre Johnson

Tre Johnson 6-7 Hug High School Reno Nevada

I have heard that the Bobcat basketball staff has received a commitment from Tre Johnson of Hug High school in Reno Nevada. Johnson is a 6-7 200 pound power forward prospect who led Hug to a 15-10 record and named to the Maxpreps.com Nevada: “Unofficial” all-state basketball team, as well as numerous other all conference/State teams.

Johnson senior year he averaged 19 points, 4 blocks, 10 rebounds, 2 steals a game while shooting 58% from the field, 60% from three point range (although he only had 5 attempts) and 65% from the free throw line.

Johnson is a major athlete, with good speed and great jumps. He was getting a lot of attention from D-1 bowl division teams as a wide receiver, but he wanted to play basketball in college – smart kid. I do not think the Bobcats have seen an athlete of his caliber on the front line in a very long time. Offensively I hear he still has a tremendous upside, even beyond what is now considered to be a great get for a Big Sky school. Johnson will contribute next year and will be another forward (along with commit Jordan Salley) who can play above the rim.

Johnson played on the same AAU team as fall Bobcat signee Chris McCall. I don’t know how much this had to do with his decision, but I think it does show the work both Huse and Assistant coach Starr did to develop a good relationship with the Powerful Las Vegas Prospects AAU team.

It has been no secret I have been coveting Johnson all since last summer and you can read more about him here.

July, 2009: Each time out Johnson continues to impress. He is still quite raw on the offensive end, but due to his length and exceptional bounce, he is a force to be reckoned with. Defensively, he has outstanding timing and is one of the quickest leapers on the west coast. Offensively, he attacks the glass with a vengeance and is able to convert a number of tip-ins and/or follow dunks. In addition, he displayed some savvy as well as he dropped off a

couple of nice assists in the paint area. Johnson is an exceptional student and has the talent to play at the mid-major level despite being very raw.

May, 2009: He was one of the pleasant surprises during the Memorial Day Blast in Hawthorne, impacting games at both ends of the floor as a shot blocker and defensive rebounder and attacking the rim on dunk and offensive rebound attempts. He runs hard and well and has decent lateral mobility. He rebounds in traffic but needs to get stronger and do a better of boxing out and not just rely on his quick-leaping ability. He has a decent mid-range jump shot (especially along the baseline) but his offensive package is extremely raw, both in the low post and on the perimeter. He seems much more likely to be a post than a wing on the college level. Johnson is reportedly an exceptional student.

As I mentioned earlier Johnson received D-1 offers for both football and basketball. He took an official visit last January to U of Nevada, but told Bobby Hauck he wanted to play basketball. In Basketball he turned down offers from Boise State and Santa Clara
