DJ Wagner makes the call and more headlines

It’s finally here.

CBS Sports


It’s official. Dajuan ‘DJ’ Wagner has picked the Kentucky Wildcats.


According to 247 Sports’ Travis Branham, Dajuan ‘DJ’ Wagner will announce his college decision today at 3 pm ET. ESPN’s Paul Biancardi adds that the decision will be announced on ESPN’s social media account.

Wagner is officially down to the Kentucky Wildcats and Louisville Cardinals.

Major basketball news could be on the horizon for the Kentucky Wildcats. Star recruit DJ Wagner, who ranks No. 2 overall in the 2023 class, is expected to announce his commitment in the coming days.

247 Sports’ Travis Branham reports that the decision could arrive as early as today. It’s also been reported that “all signs” point to Kentucky as the current favorite to land Wagner’s commitment.

The 6-3, 195 pound recruit has a five-star, 99 rating via 247 Sports and ranks behind only Isaiah Collier (USC). A commitment from Wagner would align him with fellow classmates Justin Edwards (No. 3 overall), Aaron Bradshaw (No. 4 overall), Robert Dillingham (No. 12 overall) and Reed Sheppard (No. 44 overall). That’s not including the handful of players from this year’s deep team that are likely to return for next season.

Wagner’s commitment would also solidify Kentucky having the No. 1 ranked recruiting class for the eighth time during head coach John Calipari’s tenure. There is much to enjoy regarding this year’s team, but one fans also be excited for the future of Kentucky basketball and what that holds.
