247Sports national analyst Andrew Slater has changed his Crystal Ball prediction for five-star recruit Keldon Johnson from Texas to Kentucky.
Johnson — a 6-foot-6 wing from Oak Hill Academy (Va.) — has been recruited by Texas Coach Shaka Smart since he was in the ninth grade, but Kentucky extended a scholarship offer in August and has come on strong in recent weeks.
Maryland and North Carolina State are also finalists for Johnson, who has already taken official visits to all four schools and has been on UK’s campus numerous times for recruiting visits.
247Sports ranks Johnson as the No. 11 overall prospect in the 2018 class. Slater is the No. 1-ranked recruiting analyst in the Crystal Ball standings and is one of the most plugged-in recruiting insiders in the country.
