Arizona is trying to rekindle the Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei pipeline that brought the Wildcats guards Miles Simon and Reggie Geary in the 1990s.
Stanley Johnson, rated a five-star Class of 2014 wing prospect by Rivals.com, told the Louisville Courier-Journal on Sunday that Arizona is one of five schools he will visit in the fall.
Johnson, a 6-foot-7, 226-pound player ranked as the nation’s No. 7 prospect by 247Sports.com, plans to take official visits to Kentucky, Arizona, Kansas, Florida and Oregon. He will also take unofficial visits to USC and UCLA, according to the Courier-Journal.
Johnson has tentatively scheduled dates for some of his official visits: Arizona on Oct. 12 for the Wildcats’ Red-Blue game, Kentucky on Oct. 18 for Midnight Madness and Florida on Oct. 30. He is considering a Kansas visit the weekend of Oct. 4 for Late Night at the Phog, Kansas’ version of Midnight Madness.
Johnson said Oregon’s coaches want him to come the weekend of a big football game, so that visit date is still to be determined.
