Kentucky hosted Tre Johnson, the No. 1 prospect in the Class of 2024, and Class of 2023 commit Rob Dillingham for Saturday night’s SEC/Big 12 Challenge game against Kansas.
“The visit was very cool,” the 6-foot-6 Johnson from Lake Highlands (TX) told 247Sports.com. “I liked the different meetings we had. I got to see the team and what they go through on game day. Everything was just fun. The coaches want to coach me and think I can be a one and done guy that can help out the program with my scoring ability and facilitating. They want to help me get to the next level.”
Johnson has also visited Baylor and Texas and is also considering Arkansas, Kansas and G League Ignite.
“I am seeing what a team’s gameday would look like,” Johnson told 247. “I am looking at the crowd and the atmosphere. Also seeing what they do on a day-to-day basis before and after the game.”

The 6-3 Dillingham is part of Kentucky’s No. 1-ranked class that includes DJ Wagner, Aaron Bradshaw, Justin Edwards and Reed Sheppard. Those four will play in the McDonald’s All-American Game in Houston on March 28, while Dillingham is ineligible because he plays for the semi-professional Overtime Elite league.
