    Jalen Johnson, the 6-foot-9 Class of 2020 small forward from Nicolet (WI) High School, has named his Final Four schools.

    Johnson is down to Arizona, Duke, Kentucky and Wisconsin.

    At the recent Nike EYBL stop outside Atlanta, Johnson said Kentucky was his “dream school.”

    “Yeah, I like Kentucky a lot,” he told reporters “That’s been my dream school growing up. Coach Cal, it’s meant a lot him coming to my school three times this year, so just to show that I’m a priority for them, they really want me, it means a lot.”

    Duke’s entire staff also visited Johnson on April 22, and they remain heavily in the mix as well.

    Arizona had two assistants watching Johnson at the EYBL stop, while home school Wisconsin also had coaches on hand.
