Kentucky fans feeling pessimistic about their chances of landing top recruit Stanley Johnson got a little more reason for worry Monday night.

247Sports analyst Jerry Meyer had been predicting that Johnson would ultimately commit to UK. He’s now picking Arizona.

Meyer tweeted that he switched his pick based on “recent intel I’ve received.” Johnson’s Crystal Ball page on the 247Sports site now shows 53 percent predicting Arizona, 41 percent predicting UK and 6 percent siding with Southern Cal.

Johnson — a Fullerton, Calif., native — has already taken official visits to Arizona and UK. He’s planning a trip to Southern Cal for this weekend. No college decision is expected until January.

247Sports ranks Johnson as the No. 2 overall prospect in the Class of 2014.

  1. The play of Willis is scaring these guys. He is already as good a shooter as the kid, what was his name, that transferred to Gonzaga and coach has singled him out for his defense. Put 20 more pounds of muscle on him and he will be a better 3 than any of the 2014’s top 3s and he is 6-9. Towns, Willis, Lyles and Lee would make UK solid around the bucket but Turner would help. Booker and Blackman would fix them at 2; they already have 1 covered.
