For those who are already itching for the return of March Madness, another major player just entered the fray for next season.
Many schools already have an idea of who will be joining their program via recruitment, and who will be staying around for one more chance at glory, but there are occasions where reclassification can change the landscape of a team.
In this case, one school will be extremely lucky heading into 2019 after five-star recruit Johnny Juzang reclassified to attend college this fall.

That's quite the monster to be added to the mix.
It's not unprecedented waters for a five-star recruit to recommit to an earlier class, as we've seen Marvin Bagley III reclassify a few years back and top recruit Anthony Edwards did the sam this season. Juzang's decision makes him one of the best available players uncommitted including other five-star players like

Kentucky is heavily recruiting Juzang in order to replace some of their stars like Tyler Herro who are leaving for the draft. Virginia, Villanova, Kansas and UCLA have also shown interest.
Just think, in a few months, Juzang can be making or breaking your bracket thanks to his recent decision.
