Dakari Johnson Commits to Kentucky Wildcats
Looks like the rich are getting richer in college basketball.
On Saturday night after his Montverde Academy (FL) team defeated Simeon Academy (IL) 82-53, top 2013 center Dakari Johnson announced he will be playing for the Kentucky Wildcats next season. The announcement came on ESPNU during the Cancer Research Classic. Johnson chose the Wildcats over the Georgetown Hoyas and Syracuse Orange.
The Wildcats had the best 2013 recruiting class and adding Johnson just solidifies that even more. Johnson is the sixth commit for the Wildcats joining Andrew and Aaron Harrison, James Young, Marcus Lee and Derek Willis, all top prospects in this class. In fact the Harrison twins are both top five prospects, Young is the top player from Michigan and one of the top shooting guards in the class, Lee is a top 1o power forward and Willis is the top player in the state of Kentucky.
Johnson has said all along that he wants to play for a team that can win a national championship. With the recruits that Johnson will be joining, it’s tough to say that there won’t be a championship in the near future for coach John Calipari and the Wildcats.
This season Johnson has been playing at a high level, like he is out to prove to people why he’s the best center in the nation. He will have to deal with top competition while with the Wildcats, but that will only make the big man a better player. If this class can stay together, I can see them possibly winning multiple national championships.
