Overall Rank: #9
Position (Rank): Point Guard (#2)
High School: Findlay Prep (Nevada)
Evaluation: Kabongo is the best pure point guard of the class. He has great instincts, is a very good ball handler and creates shots for himself and opportunities for his teammates. He is also very quick and athletic and makes good decisions. Kabongo can hit the three and penetrates easily too. He puts a lot of pressure on opposing point guards as well when he’s on defense by playing relentless, in your face defense. The bottom line for Kabongo is he will be a great floor general in college and always improves on his weaknesses, turning them into strengths.
