Dakari Johnson Between Syracuse, Georgetown, and Kentucky
After reclassifying to the 2013 class, Dakari Johnson, the nation’s top ranked center and 12th overall in the ESPN Top 100, slashed his list of potential schools down to three. Kansas, Ohio State, Florida and Missouri were among the top schools Johnson eliminated, leaving his decision between Syracuse, Georgetown and Kentucky.
Even though he won’t make his final decision for quite some time, I expect Kentucky to land the 6’10″ 250 pound big man. Thus, adding to their long list of talented recruits. Syracuse is close to home for Johnson, but he also lived in Lexington, KY during his middle school days and has family there as well.
I just don’t see Syracuse as being a great fit for Johnson. The Orangemen are loaded with size as they have commitments from recruits such as Chinonso Obokoh and Chris McCulough. Not to mention they also have DaJaun Coleman and Rakeem Christmas on the roster.
Unless Johnson has some kind of indispensable dream of attending Georgetown, I can’t imagine the Hoyas will have a shot of landing his services as they do not have a scholarship available to offer him.
Kentucky has commitments from top prospects such as Andrew Harrison, Aaron Harrison and James Young; and has their sights set on Andrew Wiggins, Julius Randle and Aaron Gordon. Despite this outstanding list of recruits, a center is the one thing the Wildcats haven’t obtained from the 2013 class. Yes, Kentucky already has big men Willie Cauley-Stein and Neriens Noel, but in all likelihood one of them, if not both, is bound to go pro after this season.
