One of the top ranked forwards in the class of 2020, Jalen Johnson, has set up two unofficial official visits with powerhouse schools Duke and Kentucky, according to Evan Daniels.

Johnson will be visiting Duke on Friday. This won't be the first time they have seen him however, they have watched him play in several times in camps etc.

Duke will have to fight out Kentucky for Johnson, who has also scheduled a visit to Lexington with John Calipari for the annual Big Blue Madness on October 13th.

Just like Dukes coaching staff Kentucky has also watched Johnson several times in July as well. Johnson fits the 6-5 to 6-7 mold of a player that Calipari loves.

Kentucky and Duke are also battling in-state schools Wisconsin and Marquette along with Kansas and North Carolina. Of those schools, only Wisconsin and Marquette have offered him thus far.

Johnson is a 5-star recruit across the recruiting site boards and is ranked 12th nationally by ESPN.
