Since UK’s acquisition of Kevin Knox, the prospect of Cam Johnson ending up at Kentucky has seemed more improbable. But Johnson is still considering the Cats.
As of now, though, UNC seems to be preferred destination for Johnson. Problem is, Pittsburgh ain’t too keen on letting the kid transfer to a fellow ACC school. Jay Bilas tweeted out Pitt’s statement on the matter:
Restricting Cam Johnson’s transfer is the same as a non-compete provision in an employment contract. Pitt athletes: students or employees? pic.twitter.com/YQkpDZAA9i

Seems to me like a lot of unnecessary hurdles. Of course, those hurdles could be avoided at Kentucky. Even with Knox on the roster, I’m sure a spot could be made for Johnson.
