John Calipari’s top remaining recruiting target in the Class of 2014 will announce his decision Friday, and it’s not looking good for Kentucky.
Scout.com national analyst Evan Daniels told the Herald-Leader on Thursday that he is expecting five-star small forward Stanley Johnson to choose Arizona. Daniels agreed with the popular narrative that an early decision from Johnson would be good news for the Tucson-based Wildcats.
“I think Arizona has been the favorite for quite some time,” he said. “And if it had gone longer, maybe Kentucky could make up some ground. But, at the end of the day, I think there’s a big distance issue for Stanley Johnson. And Arizona is a lot closer to home than Kentucky. I think that plays into it.”
