Highly touted shooting guard Johnny Juzang will announce his college decision Friday.

The 6-foot-6 prospect from the Los Angeles area has narrowed his choices to Kentucky, Kansas, Oregon and Virginia, and UK is the only program he’s visited so far this spring. His only other official visit was to Virginia several months ago.

247Sports ranked Juzang at No. 30 overall in its final rankings for the 2019 class.

“What Johnny Juzang can bring to a college program is the ability to make shots,” 247Sports national analyst Evan Daniels told the Herald-Leader this week. “He’s skilled. He’s got good range on his jump shot. He can really shoot, and I think that’s extremely valuable.”
