Two small forwards, no problem?
Last night, we found out that UK’s chances with small forward Kelly Oubre may be better than we thought. Now, fellow small forward Stanley Johnson tweets that if Oubre commits to Kentucky, “it just betters the situation” for him:
If @K_Ctmd22 commits to UK it just betters the situation just making it clear

Does this mean a Johnson/Oubre package is forming, or does Johnson mean if Oubre commits, he’ll go elsewhere? Johnson and Oubre are considered the second and fifth best small forwards in the 2014 class by ESPN, and both are major Kentucky targets. Cal visited Johnson last week…did he happen to say something to him about the possibility of playing with Oubre? Both are expected to visit for Big Blue Madness in October.
To make things even more confusing, Johnson has already deleted the tweet.
UPDATE: 247’s Jerry Meyer is shining some light on the situation…
@BlueBloodJoeUK means it would help rather than hurt if he committed there. Erased cause everyone started screaming package deal.
