There’s no downtime for Dakari Johnson these days.
Less than 24 hours after playing in the McDonald’s All-American Game, the UK commitment will be back on national television Thursday as he leads Montverde Academy in the National High School Invitational.
Montverde is one of eight teams to compete in this week’s tournament to crown the “national champion” of high school basketball.
Another team to watch will be Prime Prep (Texas), which includes junior point guard Emmanuel Mudiay and sophomore forward Elijah Thomas. Mudiay is one of UK’s top targets for 2014, and Thomas has already received interest from the Kentucky staff.
