Arizona Wildcats commit Stanley Johnson put St. Augustine on their heels recently, and we will have to see if he can help Mater Dei to their fourth straight state title. Was pleased to see the news and much thanks to Steve Fryer for the tweet below.

The Wildcats are getting a special talent next season, and they are familiar with that sort of thing with Aaron Gordon recently coming to town and helping them to a number one seed in the NCAA tournament. I am fully expecting the Wildcats to get at least as far as the Final Four.
Gordon and Johnson went to the same high school for those who were not aware, and so I do not anticipate Sean Miller having a problem relating to his future small forward. It will certainly be interesting to see where Johnson gets used in the offense, but that will likely be determined by what kind of talent they surround him with next season.
The Wildcats, in recent news, were recently granted a number one seed in the March Madness tournament, and will be writing a slideshow for you late which address why they were a worthy number one seed selection. It was kind of a no-brainer, but still like to keep you all in the loop.
That is all for Prep today, but here is a bit of fortune cookie wisdom if it strikes your fancy.
