USA Today’s Jason Jordan called in to the radio show this morning to give us an update on the recruitment of Stanley Johnson. He told Matt and Ryan that “Stan” is big with UK but Justice Winslow is not, so they’re looking at schools they have in common right now. Arizona and Florida are two of those schools. Johnson and Winslow have been friends since they were 12 years old and they really want to play together in college.
When asked to make a prediction, Jordan said if Stanley Johnson were to decide today, TODAY, he thinks he’ll end up at Arizona with Winslow.
However, Johnson is scheduled to visit Kentucky for Big Blue Madness so things could certainly change. These package deals rarely last, and John Calipari is telling Johnson he can come in and be “the guy” at UK in the 2014-15 college basketball season.
Jordan said Stanley is born to be the guy.
“He’s a monster. He’s a dream to have.”
