Friday Quickies: Johnny Juzang Decision Day

The talented wing from California announces his decision today

Johnny Juzang

Johnny Juzang will announce today where he will be attending to play basketball this upcoming season, and the prevailing thought is that it will be in Lexington with the Kentucky Wildcats.

Juzang, the 32nd ranked player in the class of 2019, came from almost out of nowhere to be a likely Kentucky commitment. Originally in the 2020 class, he was offered a scholarship, reclassified, visited, and then quickly announced a decision date.

I would be surprised if the choice is anything other than Kentucky today, but Virginia, Oregon and Kansas are also considered to be in the running.

The plan is for Juzang to make his announcement on Instagram at 7 pm EST.

Juzang brings excellent three-point shooting ability to the college game. He shot above 40 percent from the perimeter in high school and if he chooses Kentucky, will be a player that teams have to pay attention to at the three-point line.

But Juzang is more than just a shooter. He has the ability to get to the rim and finish and can be a solid defender at the collegiate level.

Juzang will be an important domino to fall as Kentucky looks to finish out their 2019 recruiting class with a bang. Hopefully Kentucky can add him to the class today as part of what could be another #1 ranked recruiting class.
