Johnny Juzang officially reclassifies to the class of 2019

Kentucky basketball now has another serious candidate to join its class of 2019.

On Instagram this evening, five-star wing Johnny Juzang announced he would be reclassifying to the class of 2019.

“First off, I want to thank everyone who’s helped me and been there for me up to this point,” he said. “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.”

And when might a college decision come?

“My college decision will be made in the next few weeks,” he said.

Juzang is scheduled to officially visit Kentucky starting on Monday, April 29.

In Pilgrim’s Insider Notes last night, I said that the expectation was for Juzang to announce his reclassification this evening, adding that the Kentucky coaching staff believes they can wrap things up during the visit or soon after.

There are serious rumblings that Juzang will commit whenever he feels ready, and Kentucky will certainly push for that to happen next week.

As of today, my strong prediction is that the 6-foot-7 wing winds up in Lexington.

      Why would you think he’d be here that long? He’s a 6-7 wing that can shoot it. Just what we needed for next year but I don’t understand why you think he’s here 2-3 yrs.

      Bc he’s not a Ky fan and he hopes the young man reads it and thinks our fans are nuts…

      Did you misspell “definitely” as part of your trolling or do you just suck at spelling, too?

      Nope he meant to say defiantly. Use it in a sentence? Addyjaxoff thinks ur enrolling in fake classes as UNC so u DEFIANTLY prove him wrong by enrolling at UK. Judges??

    Where’s that guy who the other day was on here warning Cal to “stay away” from players from Compton? He never explained why he said this. I wonder if that guy was aware this kid goes to an elite academic school that exists there? I wonder if he knows his older brother plays ball at the REAL Harvard in college? I wonder if he knows anything about Compton other than what he’s heard in a Dr. Dre song from 1992? Wonder if he knows two cities in Kentucky, four in Tennessee, and three in southern Indiana are consistently ranked as far more dangerous areas than Compton? Wonder if he knows Compton isn’t even in the top 10 most dangerous cities in California? Wonder if he knows we could be getting a stud baller with an unreal work ethic and basketball IQ if this young man decides to play for us?

      Tayshaun Prince is from Compton. Quality guy.

      Lots of quality people in Compton. I’m white as a ghost, I spend a lot of time in Compton and the surrounding areas, never once been hassled, never heard a gunshot, none of that.

      People say the dumbest things… the guy who wrote that has never been to LA let alone Compton. This kid goes to a better school than all but a handful in KY and better than most people of any means have an opportunity to – if u hv ever been there, u know. Their average math SAT is over 700. Average. Cahillxing did not go there lol.

      Compton Magic are Adidas affiliated and had some dealings with UCLA that were suspect. So maybe the guy yesterday was trying to make FBI connections. But this guy looks legit and I trust Cal & Sandy Bell.

    In BBN, recruiting can change quickly! (And when it doesn’t it is dragged on and on and on and on ….)

    My sources say he is headed to North Carolina to play with Anthony. I am told his visit to lex is only a formality to show respect to east coast recruiting.

      Bank it he is headed to Carolina I just called and confirmed with my source. I was also told the KY visit will be canceled in the morning.



    • nocode96
      8:16 pm April 24, 2019 Permalink

      Okay man, I’m banking it. If it’s not canceled in the morning will you come on here and state how you’re a total dweeb and the only excitement you get in life is trying to troll on school specific websites?



    • Han
      8:12 pm April 24, 2019 Permalink

      Ah, yes, showing respect to east coast recruiting by visiting Kentucky. Why exactly would he need to do that when you say he’s going to an east coach school in Carolina?



    • nocode96
      8:15 pm April 24, 2019 Permalink

      Would…wouldn’t him playing at UNC meet that “east coast” requirement. You likely just made the most nonsense statement on here today. Also, are your sources as legit as Jerry Meyer at 247?…..cuz Jerry Meyer of 247 says UK, so do lots of other folks paid money to analyze this stuff. I’m sure your uncle Tino who once beat Jenny Walker in a game of HORSE is a good dude, but he ain’t a source.



    • addyjaxlarkin
      8:28 pm April 24, 2019 Permalink

      My source just called back and said he is visiting KY on his way to UNC to get on campus early and enroll in summer classes. The UK visit is 100% only to show respect to the Western Kentucky coaching staff and the Big Ten conference. My source is never wrong



    • makeitstop
      8:22 pm April 24, 2019 Permalink

      Nocode I’m laughing – ur right – seriously “east coast”?? BUT we figured out who Larkin is!! It’s World B Free!! When he hit traded to Cleveland he said “glad to be back on the East Coast” so if not WBF this dude was definitely in his geography class!

      Addy… if your sources are correct… then my sources say if he selects UNC over our CATS…

      then the usual “we need this guy”…”he’s the greatest since LaBron”… “Calipari really knows how to pick’em”…”he’s gonna take us to the promise land” crew that constantly rides inside the COACH PROCESS TAXI each year….

      is going to be responding with “let him go…we don’t need him”…and…”UNC paid this guy”…and…”Coach Cal is gonna get ? Instead of him”…and…”My sources say he’s from Compton and to stay away because…”

      LOL!

      WASH…RINSE…REPEAT! Zzz zzzz

      Such is the state of our once proud KENTUCKY BASKETBALL program…. pimped out by the “king of pimps”!

      Built by RUPP…
      Saved by Pitino…
      Humiliated by Barnhart…
      And Pimped by Coach PROCESS!

      Exactly – if he reclassified he would not come here this year. “Another elite PG” does not mean 3.

      Additionally, Kentucky isn’t as attractive to top 5 even 10 players as it once was. UK may not land a top 10 player the next two classes

    We are gonna have like 7 wing players and Hagans at this rate.



  15. makeitstop
    9:02 pm April 24, 2019 Permalink

    So, to recap: 5 star wing re-classifies just after Cal visits and his next stop is Lexington. One troll says don’t take kids from Compton despite the fact his prep school has average SAT scores about 1400… Addyjaxoff has sources that place him in FakeClass U studying Geography w World B Free, shifting our entire state west 1000 miles, w no seismic consequences. The rest of the civilized world, a/k/a BBN says C’mon down young man, and join BBN which also stands for Billions 4 Basketball in the NBA. Did I summarize that ok?

    If Cal finishes this class off with Juzang and Blackshear, I really hope some people learn to shut the hell up when it comes to recruiting. Cal’s got this.
