Yesterday, Kentucky forward Johnny Juzang announced his top six schools that he would transfer to and USC was not listed.
This was surprising, including to Kentucky insider Matt Jones, who said, “the USC staff was a factor in his decision to transfer.”
Is it legal for a staff to talk to a player before they transfer?
It wouldn’t be the first time. Remember, Tim Floyd accused Andy Enfield of tampering with Isaac Hamilton, after he signed with UTEP.
“I called Andy Enfield and he told me he’s not taking Isaac Hamilton, that ‘we’re out of that.’ But I told him the damage had already been done,” Floyd said.
Hamilton eventually went to UCLA because Enfield was forced to back off when it all went public.

The fact that they didn’t even make the list is shocking
Something must have happened (plus Nova and Notre Dane arent really on West Coast)
Either way, lots of luck to the kid. He is a good guy https://t.co/F3m36MsIOO
