Mater Dei’s Stanley Johnson appears headed for Arizona
Stanley Johnson, a 6-foot-6 small forward from Santa Ana Mater Dei High School and considered one of the top 10 high school seniors in the country by most recruiting services, is going to announce on Friday on ESPNU that he has chosen to attend Arizona over USC and Kentucky, according to two people with knowledge of Johnson’s recruitment.
Johnson had said that he would wait until the spring signing period to make his announcement. But last week he said he would participate in the ESPNU show that will include at least three other players from around the country announcing their decisions.
Also making their choices on ESPNU at 1 p.m. PST Friday will be Jahlil Okafor, Tyus Jones and Cliff Alexander, all ranked in the top 10 nationally.
As a junior at Mater Dei, Johnson averaged 19.4 points per game and 8.9 rebounds.
