Bruin Report Online has the story:
The 6-9 center from Los Angeles Windward, Anthony Stover, who had emerged as UCLA's top post prospect in the class of 2009, called UCLA and verbally committed to the Bruins, picking them over Arizona, Arizona State and Creighton...
The rest of the story is premium, you'll need to subscribe to BRO to read it. BRO has once again scooped the MSM and brought UCLA fans the latest in recruiting news. The story has quotes from the Stover family.
This is great for UCLA basketball fans.
Anthony Stover is considered by BRO's Greg Hicks to be one of the best rebounders and shot blockers in the west, with an improving offensive game. Stover has risen in the rankings over the past year. He was also considering Arizona, Arizona State and Creighton.
Stover joins, Brendan Lane, Reeves Nelson and Tyler Honeycutt as 2009 UCLA basketball commitments. Lane is a power forward who can also play small forward, Nelson is a bruising power forward who is spending is off season playing football and Tyler Honeycutt is a five-star classic small forward -- exactly the type of player the Bruins have been looking to land for a while.
Ben Howland is really recruiting at a high level at this point, as this class comes on the heels of the Jrue Holiday, Malcolm Lee, Jerime Anderson, J'mison Morgan, Drew Gordon class.
Reports are that Howland would still like to land a two guard in the upcoming class.
