Stanley Johnson believes a package deal with Justice Winslow will happen

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.

    I think we saw in the Louisville game that Justice Winslow can’t handle the big stage. His turnovers lost us the game. Stanley Johnson would be better off playing with a guy like Maxwell Smith.

    Am I the only one sick of package deals? It’s ok to want to play at the same school as another guy but it’s not always the best decision for both parties. Just want the words “package deal” gone from recruiting vocabulary.

    Package deals don’t workout well for the Cats
    Remember the Emery package deal

    So tired of these package deals. Hopefully it dies out after the 2014 class

    2014 – the year of the package deal.

    I applaud Cal for not giving in to the “take my bro or I ain’t comin” attitude that the players in this class seem to have. If you are not man enough to stand on your own two feet, you will never make it at Kentucky.

    Don’t count out Kentucky. Remember the Terrence jones/Terrence Ross package deal a few years back?

    He tweeted ” Being taken out of context is the worst.” I don’t know if that has some subliminal to the comment he made about the package deal or not.. just thought I would share.

    Yep, I’m sick of these package deals too. Just the other day some recruit said something about liking to play with another recruit and he had to go back and delete what he said cuz everyone started screaming it was a “package deal”. It’s fine to want to play with a friend or another good player but these kids need to concentrate on themselves.

    that is hilarious #1 to attack back is not the way you should handle this, you clearly was talking about the wrong sport wrong players and wrong team, if that was me that made that mistake, after the 3 hour laugh / cry fest I would have played it off like it was a joke lol. Back to the topic at hand let’s just bring in players that understand this is a team sport, and let the rest of these clowns go elsewhere, no matter their rankings .
