Stanley Johnson has been playing extremely well, and it has not escaped the notice of Rant Sports Prep. USA TODAY Sports did an excellent piece on the forward who could end up being a player of the year according to some outlets.

He has led his squad to three state titles already, so we will have to see if they can make it four.

“Stanley is one of the best players,” teammate Rex Pflueger said. “If not the best player in the nation. It’s a great honor to play with him.”

Well, that is quite a statement and we will have to see if Johnson can back it up at the college level. Something tells me that the Arizona Wildcatshttp://www.rantsports.com/ncaa-basketball/teams/pac-12-basketball-2/ will be glad to have him, but in any case they will be getting a player who can play above the rim as well as above the water mark. It is a shame he will not get to play with former high school buddy Aaron Gordon, but that is just the way that basketball works nowadays.

All for the Prep articles at the moment, but stay tuned for a lot of All Star coverage over the weekend. Thanks as always and Rant should have a great 2014 so watch out.
