First off, I want to thank everyone who’s helped me and been there for me up to this point. I’ve had an amazing experience in high school, and wouldn’t have had it any other way. I’d like to thank Harvard Westlake: the coaches, the trainers, the teachers, and the staff for making my 3 years so special. I also want to thank Compton Magic for all they’ve done for me in my journey thus far. And of course, I want to say thank you to my family and friends who support me no matter what. • With that being said, I will be reclassifying to the class of 2019 and attending college this fall. • My college decision will be made in the next few weeks
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.
