After watching Tyus Jones’ failed attempt to pull off a heroic comeback in Howard Pulley’s loss to Expressions Elite, John Calipari and Kenny Payne stuck around in Gym 4 to see another UK target in the third game of the session. Stanley Johnson, a recent confirmed visitor for Big Blue Madness, is trying to lead the Oakland Soldiers, Aaron Gordon’s former squad, against Meanstreet. Meanstreet features 2015 star Charles Matthews, one of only a few members of that class to already hold an offer from Kentucky.
Johnson is the No. 8 player in the Rivals and Scout.com rankings. He’s currently getting smothered by Meanstreet defenders as RidgeRunner (one of our favorite KSR commenters) and I watch from above.
Tom Izzo isn’t paying attention.
