The UK coaching staff wrapped up a busy recruiting weekend with a Sunday visit to Florida, where John Calipari and two assistants met with uncommitted senior Dakari Johnson.
Calipari, Orlando Antigua and Kenny Payne visited with the five-star center, who later posted a picture of himself with the UK coaches.
Johnson has Montverde Academy off to a 6-0 start this season (see his individual stats here). He is teammates with Florida signee Kasey Hill and class of 2014 shooting guard D’Angelo Russell, a UK target.
Montverde Coach Kevin Boyle talked to Next Cats a couple of weeks ago about UK’s recruitment of Johnson, who attended Sayre Middle School in Lexington and was teammates with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist while playing at St. Patrick High in New Jersey.
Other schools recruiting Johnson include Florida, Syracuse, Georgetown, Missouri and Ohio State.
He is not expected to make a college decision until the spring.
On Saturday night, Calipari traveled to Minnesota to see Tyus Jones, the No. 1 point guard in the class of 2014.
