Elite big man Dakari Johnson reclassifies to 2013
2013 keeps getting stronger -- while also continuing to poach prospects from the class of 2014. The latest is Dakari Johnson, who immediately becomes the best big man in 2013.
The class of 2013 keeps getting better and better -– at the expense of the 2014 class. There was Wayne Selden at the beginning of the summer, Noah Vonleh last month, and then Andrew Wiggins a couple of weeks ago. Three five-star prospects moving up a class.
And now there’s one more: Elite big man Dakari Johnson is moving from 2014 to 2013, a source confirmed to CBSSports.com.
Johnson, a 6-foot-10 center from Montverde Academy (Fla.), is one of the more dominant post players in the country. He has terrific hands and excellent footwork, and is essentially a lock once he gets position down low. Highly touted for a few years, Johnson was ranked No. 4 in the class of 2014. He immediately becomes the No. 1 center in the class of 2013 and will also move into the top 10 nationally.
As far as recruiting, Kentucky and Florida are strongly in the mix for Johnson, while Georgetown is also making inroads with him. Schools like Syracuse, Kansas, Louisville, Ohio State and others are also heavily involved.
