Ben Howland and his staff needed some good news on the recruiting front and they received it this week when 6-6 junior Reeves Nelson (Modesto, Calif./ Modesto Christian) announced for the Bruins over North Carolina, Duke and Georgetown.

After building momentum with an outstanding haul (6-2 Jerime Anderson, 6-4 Jrue Holiday, 6-9 Drew Gordon, and 6-5 Malcolm Lee) during the November signing period, Howland and his staff received the surprising news 6-9 juniors David Wear and Travis Wear (Santa Ana, Calif./ Mater Dei) were taken out of their own backyard by North Carolina.
