Five-Star Basketball has learned that the former 6-9 Arizona Wildcats freshman power forward Sidiki Johnson - who announced that he would transfer in December - has officially found a spot to land. 

Providence College - who already has commitments from Five-Star guards Ricardo Ledo and Kris Dunn, along with sharp-shooter Josh Fortune - is where Johnson will make his presence felt next year. 

"It's a good fit because it's closer to home," stated Johnson. "Coach Cooley is a real good guy and I like the way he's rebuilding the program up there."

Johnson was a top-100 recruit in the 2011 class and is known for his motor and ability to score from various spots on the court. 

With his addition, Providence should be seen as a rising school with a Top-5 recruiting class. Providence is also believed to be players for Chris Obekpa in 2012 and Nerlens Noel in 2013 who could further help to fill out the frontcourt. 

Stay tuned to for updates.
