The National Signing period has begun for college hoops and the UCLA Basketball team received their fourth National Letter of Intent from Australian native, Jonah Bolden. He joins a class of big men that include McDonald’s All-Americans Kevon Looney and Thomas Welsh and Hungarian native, Gyorgy Goloman.
With this class, UCLA gets four guys that will help the Bruin front court, which was thin this past season. Here is their information:
|Kevon Looney||Thomas Welsh||Jonah Bolden||Gyorgy Goloman|
|6’8″, 210 lbs.||7’0″, 245 lbs.||6’9″, 205 lbs.||6’9″, 200 lbs.|
|Power Forward||Center||Power Forward||Center|
|5-Star, #2*||4-Star, #6*||4-Star, #6*||3-Star, Not Ranked*|
|Hamilton HS||Loyoloa HS||Findlay Prep||Sagemont|
|Milwaukee, WI||Los Angeles, CA||Henderson, NV||Weston, FL|
*-position rank per Scout.com
With this class, UCLA basketball claims the #7 recruiting class in the nation and second in the Pac-12. Arizona claimed the top spot in the conference with the third best class in the nation.
This is only the first day for recruits to sign and with the news that Kyle Anderson and Zach LaVine (and possibly Jordan Adams and Norman Powell), look for the UCLA basketball head coach Steve Alford to go after a few more players, especially at the point guard position.
UCLA has received a signed NLI from 6-foot-9 guard/forward Jonah Bolden. More info: http://t.co/Ua5x6GnC6K
