Blue chip recruit Stanley Johnson has had a high school basketball career for the ages, and now he can add another MVP trophy to his mantelpiece.

The Arizona Wildcats commit was a Naismith player of the year finalist, but he eventually lost it to Cliff Alexander. The Gatorade player of the year award has yet to be decided yet, so maybe Johnson can cash in there. He already has three state titles to his name, and he is aiming for number four. That is cash money right there, and it will not be long before Johnson gets pain in the big leagues.
Sean Miller is certainly getting a nice replacement for Aaron Gordon, and the head coach should have no problem relating to Johnson. The only question will be how far they can go together. Gordon and Johnson are not likely to ever play on the same team again, but stranger things have happened.
Anyways, Johnson was honored recently by another MVP selection; it will certainly not be the last time that happens. His career is something that I will keep a close eye on, and I will definitely be paying close attention to him at the McDonald’s All American game and practices. That should be an absolutely incredible week of basketball in Chicago, and I feel like a kid before Christmas day about it.
One more prep piece is on the way and then be sure to keep an eye out for a football slideshow as well. Thanks as always.
