Stanley Johnson was a stud for Mater Dei (CA) during his high school career, and he now has four state titles as a result.
He faces a much bigger challenge with the Arizona Wildcats next season. They will be looking to replace the production of Aaron Gordon, and Johnson could average close to 20 points per game. That prediction might be a little bit high, but we like to delve into hyperbole here from time to time.
Stanley Johnson might be the safest bet of any kid in the class to have a high level freshman season in college http://t.co/ZS2NinjEiw

Stanley should prove himself worthy of the load though, and it should be interesting to keep an eye on how Sean Miller uses the forward within the offense. Johnson even played a bit of point guard at the high school level, and his ball handling will be on full display for the Pac 12 next season. I think that the Wildcats will win the conference again, and maybe even this time around they can find their way to the Final Four. It has been a bit of a drought for them, but the mojo of four state titles just could rub off on the state of Arizona.
That is all here at Rant Sports Prep for today, but be sure to keep an eye out later tonight for a slideshow about Adam Silver and how he proved himself to be a quality politician over the last week of events. Thanks as always for reading, and I will leave you with a bit of the fortune cookie good stuff.
