Koenig reportedly narrowed his choices to Kansas, North Carolina and Wisconsin prior to the Jayhawks receiving a commitment from highly-rated in-state PG Connor Frankamp. This left the Badgers and the Tar Heels as Koenig's clear, stated leaders heading into his junior season, although Duke's late summer offer made things interesting. Koenig took in the Badger football opener against UNLV with UW recruit Sam Dekker. This came days after Mark Miller reported Koenig would make three stops in ACC country during September. Rumors that a Koenig decision was coming sooner than later and Wisconsin was in great shape gained strength. Prior to committing, he held offers from Marquette, Virginia and Washington State, among others, in addition to his top-level offers, with interest from Arizona and Minnesota.

In June after his freshman season, Koenig became one of the youngest prospects to receive a scholarship offer from Bo Ryan. He received the offer from UNC after his sophomore campaign on a Feb. 18 visit to Chapel Hill and his Kansas offer followed the Jayhawk Invitational. Duke came on strong in July.
