Johnny Juzang is Reclassifying; could Join UK’s 2019 Class


Five-star forward and Kentucky basketball target, Johnny Juzang announced he is reclassifying on his Instagram account.



Juzang, originally a member of the 2020 class, plans to graduate this semester and finish the work required to play college basketball in the fall.


John Calipari and Kentucky are heavily involved after flying to California to visit the five-star prospect last week. The Wildcats extended a scholarship offer and an on campus visit is scheduled for later this month.



Virginia and Kentucky are believed to be the two programs in the running for the talented wing.


With the departures of Tyler Herro and Keldon Johnson to the NBA, along with Jemarl Baker transferring, Kentucky will need outside threats. Juzang would deliver that if he chooses to play in Lexington.
