Just when we thought things were looking bright for UK with Stanley Johnson, he goes out and tells Jason Jordan something that leads us to be believe otherwise. Johnson told Jordan a package deal with Justice Winslow is very likely.
“I’ll be honest, I think it’s going to happen,” he said. “We’ll see. It’s a long process.”
If that’s the case, Arizona is the likely option. Kentucky hasn’t been pursuing Winslow and his mother recently told Adam Zagoria, “I don’t know honestly if Justice is considering Kentucky. I don’t know if he has been in contact with Kentucky.”
Winslow does have a UK offer, though, so don’t sleep on Calipari and the Wildcats. It’ll be interesting to see if he makes a push for Winslow now or continues recruiting Johnson solo, hoping to break up the package deal.
USA Today’s Jason Jordan will be on KSR at 10:30 to discuss.
