Five-Star Basketball: BREAKING: Sidiki Johnson Finds A New Home
Five-Star Basketball has learned that the former 6-9 Arizona Wildcats freshman power forward Sidiki Johnson – who announced that he would transfer in December – has officially found a spot to land.
Providence College – who already has commitments from Five-Star guards Ricardo Ledo and Kris Dunn, along with sharp-shooter Josh Fortune – is where Johnson will make his presence felt next year.
“It’s a good fit because it’s closer to home,” stated Johnson. “Coach Cooley is a real good guy and I like the way he’s rebuilding the program up there.”
Per NCAA regulations, the 6-foot-8 Johnson must sit out a year and will become eligible in December.
While Johnson has had some issues in the past, I, for one, welcome our new front court overlord. Have we gotten so greedy with Cooley recruiting success that we want to turn down Top 100 ranked forwards? It’s definitely a risk Cooley needs to take here.
