Stanley Johnson was unsurprisingly named Gatorade’s state player of the year in California, and he is now only two wins away from winning a fourth state title. That is a fairly impressive basketball resume for such a young player, and the Arizona Wildcats commit should fare well in his college career. Head coach Sean Miller seems to have complete control over that program right now, and they have not been recruiting this well for quite some time. I might have to go back to the Steve Kerr days to really paint the picture for you, but maybe that is too far.
Much thanks to the always excellent Eric Sondheimer for the alert to Johnson’s latest accolade.

Johnson is still in the running for national Gatorade player of the year, and he will also find out about the McDonald’s POY award on Tuesday. Quite a busy week for him, but something tells me that he is still enjoying all of it. His main focus is on winning state, but there are also probably moments where he can appreciate the dream becoming a reality.
That is all for the Rant Sports Prep today, but as always, will leave you with some fortune cookie knowledge.
