The UCLA men’s basketball team will add small forward Johnny Juzang after the Kentucky freshman announced his plans to transfer to Westwood today. He made the announcement on Twitter.
It will be a homecoming for Juzang who grew up in Los Angeles and played his high school ball at Harvard-Westlake where he was a four-star recruit.
But he didn’t seem to get much of a chance to play for the Wildcats and, when he did, it didn’t translate into much on the scoresheet. At Kentucky this season, Juzang played in 28 games and averaged 12.4 minutes per game. He also averaged just 2.9 points and 1.9 rebounds per game.
Juzang chose Mick Cronin’s program over the likes of Arizona, Notre Dame, Oregon, and others.
It’s not yet known whether Juzang will need to sit out the 2020-21 season or if he will qualify for a waiver be eligible to play immediately.
Welcome to Westwood, Johnny!
