Johnson

Five-star small forward Jalen Johnson picked up a scholarship offer from Kentucky during an in-home visit with Coach John Calipari on Tuesday evening.

Johnson — a 6-foot-8 prospect from Milwaukee — visited UK last fall for Big Blue Madness and has been on the Wildcats’ recruiting radar for well over a year. He joins Scottie Barnes and N’Faly Dante as the third player from the 2020 class with a confirmed offer from Kentucky.

Duke, Kansas, Arizona and home-state Wisconsin are among the many other major programs that have extended scholarship offers to Johnson, who is the No. 5 overall player in the 2020 class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. He averaged 18.6 points and 9.9 rebounds per game as a sophomore last season.

Johnson is expected to take the first official visit of his recruitment to Duke next month for the Blue Devils’ midnight madness event.
