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.

He told the Herald-Leader at the time that he had grown up a fan of John Calipari a€” the former head coach at Memphis a€” and had a€œalways dreameda€ of playing for him in college. Jeffriesa€™ plans have obviously changed.

a€œAfter careful consideration prayer and countless hours of consulting with my family I decided to reopen recruitment,a€ he tweeted. a€œIt was a hard decision but I am confident that taking my time to choose the right school for me to better myself educationally and athletically is the right choice.a€
