Stanley Johnson, Mater Dei Forward Receives Offer From Missouri

According to Stanley Johnson's twitter account, the 6'6" small forward recruit received an offer the the University of Missouri on Monday.

The Fullerton, CA native is currently ranked as the No. 2 best player in California from the Class of 2014 by ESPN. Johnson played for the USA U-16 team, helping the team win a Gold Medal at the FIBA Americas championship. Before injuring his hand, Johnson played in two games, averaging eight points and four rebounds for the USA.

According to his profile, Johnson currently holds offers from local colleges UCLA and USC as well. Duke, Washington, Syracuse, and Oklahoma State are also showing strong interest, but the four schools have yet to offer Johnson.

Johnson helped lead California state basketball powerhouse Mater Dei to a Division I state championship this past spring. Though his offensive abilities are superb, Johnson's defensive skills are under the radar — he helped shutdown the UCLA-bound Shabazz Muhammad in a December game this past season.
