Johnny Juzang is going back to Cali.

The former top 30 prospect announced on Thursday that he will be transferring to UCLA. He picked the Bruins over Arizona, Notre Dame, Oregon, Texas Tech and Villanova.

A product of Harvard-Westlake and initially a member of the Class of 2020, Juzang committed to Kentucky after graduating early from high school.

He told reporters that he will be attempting to get a waiver to be eligible immediately. If he does receive the waiver, it would help the Bruins offset the loss of Chris Smith should the junior wing keep his name in the NBA draft.
