Top Kentucky basketball target Stanley Johnson cut Kansas and UCLA from consideration Monday.

That leaves five schools on Johnson’s list: UK, Arizona, Southern Cal, Oregon and Florida.

The 6-foot-7 forward from Fullerton, Calif., was in Tucson for an official visit over the weekend. He has already planned an official visit to UK for Big Blue Madness on Oct. 18.

“I expect the red carpet to be out,” Johnson told the Herald-Leader in July. “That’s them at their best. And if that’s them at their best I want to see a lot of good things happen. I’m already excited about it because I heard all the fans come out and all the players are juiced. There won’t be any opposing fans there so it’ll be all love. I’m excited to see what happens.”

His only other scheduled official visit is Florida on Nov. 30.

Johnson is ranked as high as No. 2 overall in the Class of 2014 — by 247Sports.
