NCAA grants waiver to transfer wing Johnny Juzang, making him eligible for UCLA in 2020-21

Johnny Juzang, a promising 6-5 wing who decided to transfer from Kentucky to UCLA after a single season with the Wildcats, has been granted a waiver to compete in the 2020-21 season by the NCAA.

A source close to Juzang told Sporting News that he will be permitted to play for the Bruins next season. A Los Angeles native who attended Harvard-Westlake School in Southern California, Juzang averaged 2.9 points for the Wildcats in 12 minutes per game.

But he was a hero of Kentucky’s Southeastern Conference championship-clinching victory on the road at Florida on the final day of the 2019-20 regular season. He scored 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting that including two 3-pointers in UK’s come-from-behind win over the Gators.
