You’ve heard the news about Dakari Johnson announcing his
commitment to Kentucky college decision tonight at halftime of the 8pm game of the Cancer Research Classic, but don’t forget to watch him show out on the court as well.

Montverde comes into the game with a 6-0 record and is currently ranked #2 in the nation by USA Today, and Simeon (2-1) also cracked the Top 10, coming in at #9.
Louisville native and 2014 5-star prospect D’Angelo Russell also plays for Montverde Academy, and is a player who has shown interest in Kentucky although he has yet to receive an offer. Russell is ranked by Rivals as the 10th best player in the 2014 class.
