John Calipari’s latest recruiting tour will make a stop in California on Thursday.
Top UK target Stanley Johnson tweeted Wednesday that he will host the UK coach for an in-home visit. Johnson — a 6-foot-7 small forward from Fullerton, Calif. — is one of the top players in the Class of 2014 and quite possibly UK’s No. 1 priority in the class.
247Sports considers Johnson the No. 2 overall prospect in the senior class. He has already scheduled his official visit to UK for Big Blue Madness on Oct. 18.
UK and Arizona have been considered the favorites in Johnson’s recruitment. Arizona Coach Sean Miller had an in-home visit with Johnson on Monday, and the top recruit will take his official visit to Tuscon this weekend. He’s also planning official visits to Florida, Kansas and Oregon. UCLA and Southern Cal are the other two schools on his list.
Calipari met with point guard Tyus Jones in Minnesota on Tuesday and was scheduled to see Texas center Myles Turner on Wednesday. The coach said earlier this week that he planned to be on the road through Sunday.
