Gifted and ultra-athletic 6-foot-4 rising junior guard De'Vontes Cobbs has been on the move for some time, changing numerous schools since first enrolling at local high school basketball power Shadow Mountain High School in Phoenix, Arizona, during his freshman season. After receiving loads of national attention (2022 Class Top 30 national prospect) as a middle-schooler in Milwaukee, WI, Cobbs decided to move to the state of Arizona. As an impressive starter as a mere freshman for 4A defending State Champion Shadow Mountain High School, and helping lead the program to another state championship and a nice 26-3 overall record on the season, Cobbs decided to transfer schools after the departure of former NBA guard and Arizona basketball legend Mike Bibby, who coached the Shadow Mountain program for many years and turned the program into a national power.
Cobbs then enrolled at AZ Compass Prep during the summer of his sophomore season, but would never play for AZ Compass. Instead he would then transfer to California's Mayfair High School (CA), where he would attend school for a semester, before then leaving that program to transfer last season to Hillcrest Prep. After spending a season competing for a loaded Hillcrest Prep National Team, that won numerous national events, Cobbs has now decided to transfer schools once again, although he is currently undecided still where he will land for his junior season.
Cobbs is an electric guard prospect that is capable of playing both guard positions on the floor, and is a serious proven scorer. He can score in bunches from all angles of the floor, while slashing to the basket and finishing strong and dunking the basketball in fine fashion over defenders. He is a human highlight reel in the open floor and is an Instagram national sensation every time he takes the floor.
Here is a recent interview with Cobbs by Arizona Preps, as he looks to make a decision on where he will play this high school season . . .
