In the past months Tyus Jones and Jahlil Okafor have been vocal about wanting to attend the same school together. However, they may not be the only one’s who want to do the same thing. According to the director of basketball scouting for 247 sports, Jerry Meyer, Stanley Johnson would be more interested in coming to UK if Kelly Oubre does too.

If it is in fact true, that if Oubre commits to Kentucky and the possibility of picking up Johnson as well, it would be a great pickup for the Cats. Both Johnson and Oubre are solid players and could easily start as soon as they come in.
Although it is a great thought of having another shot at a package deal in 2014, Johnson tweeted back to Meyer clarifying his original tweet.
@jerrymeyer247 I meant what I said… People talking about package deal that’s not what I said… It was to vague
