Brampton, ON native Kobe Elvis recently announced his commitment to play next season for the DePaul Blue Demons under head coach Dave Leitao.
Elvis will join fellow Canadian and Mississauga native Nick Ongenda who is in his freshman season in Chicago with DePaul.
The 6-foot-2 Elvis is an exceptional athlete with an explosive first step that allows him to blow past defenders with ease. He is also an exceptional ball handler and can shoot from range but his most important attribute is that he gets his teammates involved and makes everybody on the floor a better player.
He was named MVP of the OSBA last season after averaging 28 points per game at Southwest Academy. He has since transferred to Bill Crothers in Unionville, ON for this season where he is currently averaging 23.2 PPG along with five assists per game.
Previous MVP’s of the OSBA include Thon Maker of the Detroit Pistons and Ignas Brazdeikis with the New York Knicks which puts Elvis is some rare company.
Elvis was also named to the 2019 Bio Steel All-Canadian game which airs nationally on TSN across Canada and he is a lock to participate in the 2020 Bio Steel game.
