Five-Star Guard D.J. Wagner Commits to Kentucky
In this story:
Wagner’s father, Dajuan, was the nation’s No. 1 prospect in 2000 and chose to play for John Calipari while he coached at Memphis.
Wagner’s grandfather, Milt, was on the 1986 Louisville title team. Now, he works as the team’s director of player development and alumni relations.
Despite being recruited by Louisville coach Kenny Payne and his grandfather, Wagner ultimately chose to join Calipari and the Wildcats next season.
The senior will join one of his Camden High School, N.J., teammates at Kentucky, five-star center Aaron Bradshaw, who committed to the program last month. Five-star recruits Justin Edwards and Robert Dillingham also signed letters of intent with the team, per 247 Sports.
The guard out of New Jersey played in 32 games last season totaling 634 points, 136 rebounds, 98 assists and 101 steals.
