While the 6-foot-8 forward turned heads this summer when he called Kentucky his “dream school” growing up, Duke has long been seen as the leader in Johnson’s recruitment. Today, he confirmed those rumors.
Kentucky will now turn to the likes of Daishen Nix, Jalen Green, and Brandon Boston Jr. to fill out the 2020-21 backcourt.
