The Arizona Wildcats continue to hit the recruiting trail at break-neck speed this summer, offering 2020 five-star prospect Jalen Johnson.

Johnson is a 6-foot-7 small forward from Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. He is currently a member of the U17 USA men’s national team.

Johnson is the No. 8 player in his class and the No. 3 small forward, per 247Sports composite rankings, so landing him would be a huge addition for Arizona’s 2020 class, which is currently barren.

Johnson also holds offers from Wisconsin, Marquette, Iowa, Illinois, LSU, USC, UCLA, Florida, Arizona State, UNLV, West Virginia, Georgia Tech, and Purdue among others.

Johnson is likely to receive more offers over the summer from other high-profile programs.

At the moment, it appears Wisconsin is the front runner for Johnson. He has been on multiple unofficial visits to Wisconsin, and all six Crystal Ball predictions project he will stay in his home state.

On the other hand, Johnson is exactly the kind of player that Sean Miller needs to get back to landing, so expect Arizona push hard for a commitment.
