With one tweet Monday afternoon, UKa€™s basketball recruiting prospects for the class of 2019 took a major turn.

DJ Jeffries a€” a highly touted forward from the Memphis area a€” announced via Twitter that he is no longer committed to Kentucky and is reopening his recruitment. The 6-foot-7 prospect originally committed to the Wildcats in March, a few days after leading Olive Branch High School to a Mississippi state championship.
