Dakari Johnson Reclassifies to the Class of 2013, Georgetown In The Mix

usabasketball.com

Georgetown again in the mix for a top big man.

Hoyas fans, meet Dakari Johnson. Johnson, a 6'10" center out of Elizabeth (NJ) St. Patrick High, has reclassified from the Class of 2014 and is now the best big man remaining on the board in the 2013 class. Johnson played alongside Georgetown's Stephen Domingo on the 2012 USA U17 World Championship team and it was reported that Domingo had been trying to recruit some of his teammates to come with him to the Hilltop.


Per Adam Zagoria:

Syracuse, Kentucky and Georgetown have been involved with Johnson dating to his time at Elizabeth (N.J.) St. Patrick High School. At one point in 2011, he told SNY.tv that "Syracuse is recruiting me the hardest right now."

Still, Johnson's mother, Makini Campbell, told SNY.tv this summer that Kansas, Florida, Louisville, Ohio State and Stanford were also involved.

Syracuse has been busy on the recruiting trail of late, landing top 10 Class of 2014 forward Chris McCullough yesterday. McCullough has been rumored to be part of a "package deal" that includes '14 shooting guard Isaiah Whitehead.

Kentucky will have room for a big man in its 2013 recruiting class, as prized freshman jerkface Nerlens Noel is expected to make the leap to the NBA after his freshman campaign.

Though Georgetown currently does not have any available scholarships in the Class of 2013, it is expected that one or more may become available due to the health concerns of Tyler Adams and the likely departure of Otto Porter to the NBA after this season. Class of 2013 forward Reggie Cameron will occupy one of those scholarships next season as he has already committed to the Hoyas.
