2014 Forward Dakari Johnson Lists Villanova

2014 uber-prospect Dakari Johnson recently listed Villanova in his early list of schools according to Jeff Borzello of CBSSports. Johnson played last season at Villanova feeder-school St. Patrick's in New Jersey, but is currently looking for a school after coach Kevin Boyle took the job at Monverde Academy in Florida (James Bells' former high school).

Rivals and Scout have not ranked the 2014 class yet, but ESPN rates Johnson as the #1 center in the country and the #2 player overall at this point. On Johnson ESPN writes:

Dakari is a true force whenever he steps on the court. He plays up a grade in the 15 & Under division and he is still dominant. He has a strong body and good hands. His feet and footwork are good for a player so young. He is an excellent scorer inside and his teammates make a concerted effort to get him the ball in the paint. He scores mostly off short face up shots in the lane but will show an occassional post move scoring over his left shoulder. Johnson is an excellent rebounder with his big body and strong hands.

Johnson also listed Kentucky, Syracuse, Georgetown, Xavier, Louisville and Ohio State.
