UTEP Basketball: 2017 PG Kobe Magee verbally commits to UTEP

UTEP locked up a 2017 point guard from San Antonio.

San Antonio Native, and 2017 prospect Kobe Magee has verbally committed to UTEP's class of 2017 he announced on Twitter this morning.

The 6'0 guard is ranked as the #10 overall player in Texas for the class of 2017 by TexasTop100.com's top-100 list, and was also listed as the #8 3-point shooter in his class by TexasTop100.

A now three-year letterman at Brandeis High School, Magee averaged 17.1 points this past season as a junior, and hit a career high 79 3-pointers leading Brandeis to a 31-2 record and a top-10 state ranking as well.

He averaged 18.5 points, and four rebounds per game as a sophomore, and will certainly see his recruiting stock grow with another year of high school remaining.

When asked to describe his game, he had this to say to TexasTop100.com.

"I'm probably one of the best perimeter passers and inside passers. I get my teammates involved in different ways. Not just my scoring ability, but I feel like my ability to pass and get my teammates open is what I'm best at."

UTEP could have two or three scholarships available for the class of 2017 depending if Matt Willms is able to get another year of eligibility.

Tim Floyd and his staff were the first to offer Magee, he was also offered by Sam Houston State, UTSA, and LIU-Brooklyn.
