Stanley Johnson, the highly sought after wing from Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei, did not visit Oregon this past weekend and next heads to USC on Friday.
“USC Nov. 1,” he told SNY.tv by text.
He said the Oregon visit was “cancelled because my parents went out of town.”
Johnson is still working with a list of Kentucky, Oregon, USC, Florida and Arizona.
No other visits are set as of now.
He enjoyed his recent visit to Kentucky for “Big Blue Madness.”
He said that UK coach John Calipari told him he could play the “1-3 position-wise and I’d be able to do my thing.”
Johnson is projected by DraftExpress.com as the No. 7 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.
