Ex-UCLA commit Kobe Paras headed to Creighton

1 Comment

Creighton added another piece to the puzzle over the weekend as former UCLA commit Kobe Paras announced that he will be a Bluejay in college.

The 6-foot-6 Paras originally signed with the Bruins out of high school, but he did not enroll at the university due to an academic issue.

Paras will join Davion Mintz in Creighton’s freshman class, but the Bluejays will also add Kansas State transfer Marcus Foster, a former all-Big 12 talent, and Justin Patton, a redshirt freshman and former top 50 recruit, to the mix. With Mo Watson already on the roster, Creighton has a borderline top 25 roster this season.

A native of the Phillipines, Paras is the son of a Filipino basketball legend and actor, Benjie Paras.
