Kobe King - From Red Raider to a Badger

Basketball: Central's King is headed to Wisconsin

Kobe King had been waiting 53 days to make the phone call he made on Wednesday evening.

He remembers clearly the excitement of July 25 and the offer he received to play basketball for the University of Wisconsin.

King had plenty of other options, but coach Bo Ryan’s program was the one he was waiting on.  So the fact that the Central High School junior waited until Wednesday to accept that offer is pretty impressive.

“I have know I wanted to do this for a long time,” said the 6-foot-4 guard, who called Ryan around 6:15 p.m. with his decision to accept the offer. “This is what I wanted since I was a freshman and went to watch a game.

“I was looking around that day and thought, ‘Wow, I can see myself playing here.’”

King chose the Badgers from several other offers — Iowa State and Marquette among them — after averaging 15.8 points and 6.3 rebounds per game as a sophomore for the Red Raiders.

He is the second player from La Crosse to commit to playing for Ryan. Former Aquinas standout Bronson Koenig will be a junior and the team’s starting point guard for the 2015-2016 season.

“It’s exciting because it is such a great fit for him,” Central coach Todd Fergot said. “It’s hard to go there and watch a football game or something and say no to an offer like that, too.”

King said it was decision time after traveling to Madison over the weekend and taking in the atmosphere of Wisconsin’s 58-0 nonconference football victory over Miami (Ohio).  “I wanted to announce on Sunday,” said King, who revealed his decision via Twitter at 6:32 p.m. “We decided to wait a few more days just to be sure, I guess.”

King, the team’s second verbal commitment for the Class of 2017 — Belgium’s 6-11 Andy van Vliet was the first in May — since losing the NCAA championship game to Duke in April, has been a significant part of Central’s team since he was a freshman.

King, whose father’s cousin is Michigan Fab Five member Jimmy King, averaged 9.5 points as a freshman and announced his presence with a 29-point performance in his third game with the team.

The graduation of Tribune Player of the Year Alex Hayden, now a manager for the Badgers, allowed King’s role to expand. He responded with a much more polished game and bigger post presence as the Red Raiders went 17-7 and tied for third place in the MVC.

Central and Onalaska, led by juniors Jalen Zubich and Tyler Hughes, are expected to battle over the conference title this season as two of the top Division 2 teams in the state.

“The thing about Kobe is that his ceiling is so high,” Fergot said. “There are things we’ve been working on that he keeps getting better and better at. He can be such a good player.”

King. whose AAU program is the Wisconsin Playground Warriors, is the first Central basketball player to commit to Wisconsin since 1995 Central graduate Kelley Paulus, who is still 19th on the women’s team’s list of career scoring leaders.

Ryan announced in June that the upcoming season would be his last, then said in August that he might coach longer.

King wasn’t phased by the announcements and didn’t let them impact his decision.  “Just having the chance to play for coach Ryan makes this the right choice for me,” King said. “And even if he’s gone when I get there, they’ve been to the last two Final Fours.

“It’s one of the best programs in the nation.”
