Cameron Johnson became a known name around Kentucky recruiting when he graduated from Pitt and decided to transfer.
Kentucky desperately needed pure shooting at the 3 point line with Malik Monk headed to the NBA and Diallo testing the NBA waters. Calipari went in search for more shooting. Jemarl Baker committed very soon after being offered and filled in some of what was missing. Mark Smith stayed home at Illinois, leaving a hole open for more shooting guards.
Kevin Knox then surprised the world and committed to Kentucky. He will fill the role missing from some of the 3 point shooting. Diallo then decided to come back and forgo the NBA draft, making him the primary piece for next years team.
UNC seems to being going very hard after Johnson considering they are trying to get the “sitting one year out if attending an ACC school” taken off the table.
According to Jon Rothstein he will visited UNC on Monday.
With what Kentucky has coming in and Diallo coming back, I don’t expect him to play for the Wildcats next season. There is however room if he decides to.
But it doesn’t seem promising for Kentucky unless Pitt doesn’t allow him to attend UNC.
