Kentucky transfer Johnny Juzang commits to UCLA over Arizona, others

NCAA Basketball: Georgia Tech at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Not only did the Arizona Wildcats not land Kentucky transfer Johnny Juzang, they will have to deal with him for the next several years.

The 6-foot-7 forward committed to the UCLA Bruins over Arizona, Oregon, Villanova, Notre Dame and Texas Tech on Thursday.

Even though Juzang appeared in 28 games as a freshman, he told that he expects to receive a waiver to play immediately, just as Arizona guard Jemarl Baker Jr. did when he left UK.

While Juzang only averaged 2.9 points and 1.9 rebounds at Kentucky, he does have a lot of potential, once being ranked the No. 33 player in the 2019 recruiting class.

Even after the addition of Seattle grad transfer Terrell Brown, Arizona has four scholarship slots to fill assuming Josh Green declares for the NBA Draft as expected.
