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.
