Five-star prospect Dakari Johnson is now moving classes. In what is a recent trend, the class of 2013 receives another excellent prospect.

The biggest weakness for the class of 2013 is the depth on the post. No players were rated in the five-star range by Scout.com heading into Monday, but that has now changed with the news that Dakari Johnson is on the move.

Johnson, who is a 6-foot-10 and 250 pound center, will speed up his enrollment to college by moving from the class of 2014 to 2013 according to sources with knowledge of the situation.

Coming into the week Johnson was ranked as the No. 5 overall prospect and the No. 3 center in the country, but now he will be moved to 2013 and is expected to sign with a school in the spring.

Colleges such as Syracuse, Florida, Kentucky, Louisville, Ohio State, Arizona, Georgetown, and Kansas were all in hot pursuit of Johnson, and nothing is expected to change in that regard.

What was an already loaded class of 2013 is now even stronger with the addition of Johnson.
