How Good is Stanley Johnson?


Even though he’s ranked 8th in the country, at least one NBA scout thinks he’s the top guy around.

If Stanley Johnson is the eighth-best player in the country, I need to see the first seven.  He’s a special performer. He did it when it counted,” the anonymous scout told

The praise came after Johnson picked up 23 points, 11 rebounds, and 5 assists in the final game of the Nike Global Challenge yesterday, which his team won, 98-95.  He was named Co-MVP of the event alongside Ohio State commit D’Angelo Russell.  Johnson came up big in the final game, helping USA West withstand a late rally by USA South.

As a reminder, Johnson is a 6’6″ wing out of California who has offers from almost the entire west coast, as well as Louisville, Syracuse, and Kentucky.

And he can do this.

Johnson will be in Lexington for Big Blue Madness.

    Stanley looks to be a tremendous player, very versatile – able to score in a variety of ways. I would love to see him at UK next year. He’s a big time player.

    Why mention Louisville first when listing offers? Or list them at all?

    We are working on a financial package with his handlers. No worries. Kids today sure love those prepaid debit cards.

    Why did we not recruit D’Angelo Russell? He is a great player and from Kentucky right?

    #4) So when a recruit chooses another school, including the team you root for, does that mean your school paid them more? I bet your answer is no.

    Why don’t you create a message area that requires user accounts and logins like the reputable forums do so you don’t get as much of the trashy drive-by’s like “Uncle Wes Says” above. then maybe a moderator as well.
