Johnny Juzang is an athletic, energetic swingman that helped lead UCLA to get to the 2021 NCAA Tournament. After having transferred from Kentucky, he is receiving regular playing time at UCLA, and he has been a vital player for them.
He can score the basketball in a variety of ways, and he recently played very well as he scored 28 points in his team’s Elite Eight win over Michigan. After starring in the 2021 NCAA Tournament, he had a shaky combine showing afterwards, as he struggled in the two combine scrimmage games there. Currently, Johnny Juzang projects to go in the late first to the second round range in the 2022 draft.
