University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Johnny Juzang commits to KENTUCKY!

John Calipari may be in Italy, but he just added another impressive recruit to his roster for next season. Four-star wing Johnny Juzang just announced he’s committed to the University of Kentucky. He’s listed as the No. 30 overall player in the class, according to 24/7 Sports’ final rankings.

The Studio City, California native just posted the news on his Instagram, saying “Big Blue Nation, stand up.” He chose the Cats over Virginia, Kansas and Oregon.

After reclassifying into the 2019 class just weeks ago, Juzang was thrust into the spotlight, quickly moving onto Kentucky’s radar, especially after news broke of Jemarl Baker’s pending transfer. He’s listed at 6-foot-6 and 200 pounds. In high school, he averaged 22.8 points, 9.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game throughout 26 appearances. Juzang shot 43 percent from the floor, 35 percent from the three-point line and 85 percent from the charity stripe.

With the commitment, the Cats currently have the No. 1 recruiting class in the nation, followed by Arizona then Duke. Before Juzang’s commitment, UK was in third place, but the addition of the four-star player pushed the Cats back to the top. This isn’t necessarily finalized, as Memphis could make a move for the No. 1 spot if they land RJ Hampton and Boogie Ellis. However, if Coach Calipari is able to land Jaden McDaniels, Kentucky could still snag one of the top spots.

Regardless, Juzang’s commitment is great news for next season’s Wildcats. Welcome to the BBN!

      Dontae Allen is good enough to start if he is healthy but Cal likes to 5 star guys so I really don’t have clue who will start, the guy to watch for this upcoming season is Quickly I think he will a have breakout year of the returning player & the newcomer I’m going with brooks….

    Great news!

    WTF is up with KSR access?
    The already difficult-to-navigate website built with 1994 technology has been near impossible this week.

    Would think all those ads would pay for a more robust server.

    Happily pay a monthly fee to help KSR get to at least a 1999 level of performance.

      It’s called a DDOS attack. I’m in the IT industry and this is a very common thing. You can pay a certain amount in Bitcoin on the darknet/web and request a DDOS attack to happen. KSR Guys, if you all need some assistance preventing this type of attack let me know. I can send you my e-mail address and we can talk offline.

      GO CATS!!!!!! I know the #1 recruiting class in the nation doesn’t really mean SH** but it’s nice to say we have it again for at least the time being. Welcome Johnny J! Can’t wait to see you guys play next year.
