Five-star Class of 2016 guard Kobi Simmons has been a known commodity for a few years now and he’s one of the most electrifying players in the country. The 6-foot-5 Simmons hails from Alpharetta, Georgia and he recently took official visits to Kentucky, UNLV and Ohio State.
Georgia native and guard Kobi Simmons is one of the most electric players in the Class of 2016. The 6-foot-5 guard is one of the premier playmakers in the country and the five-star guard made some tremendous plays while running with the Atlanta Celtics this summer.
Here’s a summer highlight reel of Simmons from Courtside Films.
Highlights of Dennis Smith Jr., Kobi Simmons matchup from July
The Class of 2016 is loaded at the point guard position, with two of the best being Dennis Smith Jr. (who’s currently sidelined with a torn ACL suffered at adidas Nations in early August) and Kobi Simmons. The two stars met multiple times in July, including at the adidas Gauntlet Finale in Atlanta in the middle of the month.
Courtside Films recently released a highlight video of that meeting, which Simmons’ Atlanta Celtics squad won by four points, can be viewed above. Simmons currently has visits set for Kentucky (August 28), Xavier (September 4) and Ohio State (September 28), with Smith yet to schedule any official visits.
Team Rose, which included Lonzo Ball, Kobi Simmons, Edrice Adebayo, Rawle Alkins, and Mustapha Heron, defeated Team Wall, 113-93 on Monday night at Cerritos College in Norwalk, California to win the 2015 adidas Nations.
Alkins, the five-star guard down to 10 schools, scored a game-high 26 points. Markelle Fultz led Team Wall with 14.
The field at the 2015 adidas Nations also included the nation’s top point guard, Dennis Smith Jr., who averaged 16.0 points and 7.6 assists per game in the showcase, as well as Wenyen Gabriel, July’s biggest stock-riser, wh helped Team Africa finish third.
Frank Jackson and Terrance Ferguson, ranked Nos. 10 and 11 by Rivals, played in the same back court for Team Wall, the runner-up in the event.
As the No. 8 overall prospect in the Class of 2016, five-star point guard Kobi Simmons has a lot of eyes on him this July. The 6-foot-5 native of Georgia is playing with the Atlanta Celtics this summer and he recently cut his list to Ohio State, Xavier, Kentucky, North Carolina, Georgia and Arizona.
