On Friday, John Calipari and Joel Justus visited 2020 five-star wing Johnny Juzang in California and offered him a scholarship. Minutes ago, Juzang tweeted that he’s got a “big announcement” coming tomorrow night at 7:30 p.m. ET:
Big announcement tomorrow @ 4:30pm PST !
— Johnny Juzang (@JohnnyJuzang) April 23, 2019
There have been rumors Juzang might reclassify to 2019; if so, that’s a pretty big announcement, and the timing certainly favors the Cats. Juzang is considered the No. 19 player in the 2020 class by ESPN and averaged 23.0 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 3.4 assists last season. In addition to Kentucky, he’s already been offered by Kansas, Virginia, UCLA, USC, and others.
After Cal and Justus met with Juzang on Friday, 247 Sports’ Jerry Meyer logged a Crystal Ball pick in Kentucky’s favor. He also told Ben Roberts that he’s heard talk of reclassification and that Juzang has coveted a UK offer for a while.
Jack will have more on Juzang in tonight’s Insider Notes, but for now, enjoy his latest highlights.
