Stanley Johnson recently announced he would follow his old high school teammate Aaron Gordon to the Arizona Wildcats and you can bet that many fans have been quite happy on twitter as a result.

Johnson even tweeted his love out to Dick Vitalte for showing the young forward a little love on the recent national telecast of the Wildcats win. Really love that social media makes stuff like this possible.

Johnson is a top ten player in the 2014 college basketball recruiting class according to ESPN, and his college career will be watched closely by many GMs. He seems like a Victor Oladipo-type who could work his way up to a better draft position with a successful college basketball career. Neither Johnson or Gordon seem likely to stay beyond their freshman year with the Wildcats, but that does not mean college basketball will not enjoy them while they are in school.

That is all for Rant Sports Prep today folks, but be sure to tune in for my pro basketball previews tomorrow morning which will include TV schedules and a betting line. Also if any of you saw the recent Forbes article about Rant Sports, then you know that we are primed for big things in 2014 so strap on your seatbelts and enjoy the ride.
