The latest "package deal" talk in recruiting just might benefit the Arizona Wildcats: Five-star 2014 wings Justise Winslow and Stanley Johnson are talking about playing together in college.
The schools that are on both players' lists so far are UA, Kentucky and Florida. Johnson has made plans for a Sept. 14 visit to Tucson while Winslow still has not announced his fall schedule.
Johnson also told SNY.tv at the Elite 24 game that USC could become a factor with both of them.
“I think USC’s trying to get involved with him, too,” Johnson said. “So we’re going to start talking to USC together a little bit, so it’s going to be fun.”
Among Arizona's advantages, other than a long involvement with both players, is potentially wide-open opportunity to sell them: The Wildcats will lose Jordin Mayes and probably anywhere from two to five other players after next season.
Trey Kell, the 2014 guard from San Diego who received a UA scholarship offer in July, has scheduled an official visit to Arizona on Sept. 21, according to Scout.com.
Kell is also scheduled to visit Oregon, Gonzaga, San Diego State and Vanderbilt, with unofficial visits to USC, UCLA and UC Irvine.
