UCLA still recruiting PGs in 2013?
By Joe Kaiser
UCLA already has a commitment from 2013 point guard Zach LaVine (Bothell, Wash./Bothell High) and there is no guarantee that freshman point-forward Kyle Anderson will declare for the NBA draft, but the Bruins appear to be interested in adding another point guard to its 2013 class.
Adam Zagoria of SNY.tv tweets this morning that UCLA assistant Korey McCray "is on his way to Kentucky to see 2014 PF Ray Kasongo and 2013 PG Emmanuel Owootoah, among others."
Even with three commitments in their current class, the Bruins still have plenty of room to add to it. If everyone returned next season, which is highly doubtful considering the NBA potential of Shabazz Muhammad and Anderson as well as the ongoing transfer rumors surrounding ESPN 100 freshman Tony Parker, UCLA still only has 10 scholarships committed to next season. More than likely, Ben Howland will have the room to add as many as five or six more players to the 2013 class if he so chooses.
