Tre Johnson is widely considered the best guard in the Class of 2024 with everyone from Gonzaga to Kentucky to Baylor and Kansas, among many others, in pursuit. This summer, Johnson dominated the Nike EYBL with Team Griffin (Okla.) after a stellar college debut at 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 daily life in a blog.
What’s up world, it’s Tre Johnson coming back to you with another blog for Sports Illustrated!
Right now we’re in the playoffs, so it’s win or go home.
We played well and peaked at the right time, so we’re trying to keep that momentum going. We got a big win over Plano last week, so we’re still alive.

We didn’t feel like they were like Richardson and we started slow with them and came back from a big deficit. We knew if we just played our game and executed the game plan, we could win.
Now we’re playing Arlington Martin tonight!
It’s been a tough season for me, but I’ve grown a lot learning new ways to produce against all the defenses in the book! I grew as a playmaker and I grew a lot mentally too!
I think another area where I have improved is my ability to do things without the ball in my hands. Whether it’s cutting or moving to open up, I feel like I’m doing it all a lot better now.
The playoffs brought the coaches out.
Baylor and Texas were in my first playoff game and Arizona came to my senior night. Then I recently got an offer from TCU, and I also got an offer from Kansas.
I always get excited when I hear I have new offers, but when the coaches come to games, I block them and stick to doing my best.
At the end of the day, I want to win every time I step onto the pitch.
Outside of those schools, Arkansas and Gonzaga also stayed in touch through my dad on a fairly regular basis.
It was cool to participate in a few games recently; I went to the Baylor-Villanova game, then I went to the Texas-Tennessee game.
When I’m there, I just like to sit back and enjoy the game, but I watch the guards and the sets they run. I watch everything to be honest. I want to see if I can see myself playing there.

It’s fun, but I’m just focused on that state title!
I know the spring and summer prom is right around the corner, but I have to block it too.
School is going well !
I got all the A’s and B’s, which I’m really proud of.
OK on the music side, I’m definitely listening to a lot of Durk and YoungBoy lately with their back and forth they have going on.
I watched Bel-Air too and I really like it! I would recommend this and Rhythm and Flow on Netflix.
Both are good choices!
Ok guys, I have to go back to watch the movie for our next opponent, but I’ll talk to you soon, so watch out!
