Eubanks backs off commitment

Kobie Eubanks, a four-star prospect, has backed off his commitment to Baylor.

Baylor was expecting to have Kobie Eubanks, a 6-foot-5 wing scorer, in their 2014 recruiting class. But due to transcript issues, Eubanks, who signed with the Bears last year, was forced to do a post-graduate season at Delray Beach (Fla.) Elev-8.

Now Baylor may not end up with Eubanks at all. On Monday, Elev-8 coach Chad Myers informed Scout that he has decommitted from Baylor and will pursue other college options.

“I think he just wants to see what the best situation is for him,” Myers told Scout. “I don’t think it’s anything on Baylor’s end. With him here he just wants to make sure he is making the best decision.”

“They are still involved in his recruitment,” he added. “He’s going to take a couple of weeks and put together a list.”

Among the schools that called to express interest in Eubanks on Monday and Tuesday morning were Boston College, Connecticut, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Iowa State, Louisville, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Oregon, and Providence.

Eubanks had arguably the best performance of the National Prep Showcase this past weekend. After scoring 15 points in his first game of the event, Eubanks broke out for a dominant 37-point performance in a win over New Hampton School.

A confident scorer, Eubanks has a developed scoring package that allows him to put up points in a variety of ways. He’s a good shooter off the catch, but he has expanded his game. His strength lies in his ability to take defenders off the dribble for mid-range pull-ups or strong finishes at the rim. At his size, he’s strong, athletic and assertive when he has scoring opportunities.

Eubanks, a four-star prospect, is one of the best available perimeter scorers in the 2015 class.
