High school basketball: Five-star foward Kijani Wright announces transfer to Sierra Canyon for senior season

One of the top prospects in the Class of 2022 is moving cross town as Kijani Wright announced via Instagram he’s transferring to Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth, Calif.). As a sophomore at Windward (Los Angeles), the 6-foot-9 forward earned MaxPreps Sophomore All-American honorable mention honors after averaging 13 points and 8.5 rebounds.

Wright is the No. 14 prospect in the Class of 2022, according to 247Sports. The five-star forward joins a strong returning core for the Trailblazers that includes Amari Bailey, Bronny James, Ramel Lloyd Jr. and Shy Odom.

Sierra Canyon finished 15-2 in an abbreviated 2020-21 season en route to the CIF Southern California Open Division regional semifinals. The Trailblazers finished 30-4 in 2019-20 and ended the year ranked No. 15 in final MaxPreps Top 25 rankings.

The addition of Wright helps the Trailblazers in their quest to compete at the national level and Sierra Canyon has time to add more pieces.
