NCAA Basketball Recruiting Update: UCLA #1, Arizona and U$C Both Lose Key Commits

According to CBS College Sports, UCLA has secured the top recruiting class in the nation to date:

UCLA edges Kansas for the top spot as the spring recruiting period comes to an end, but the rankings aren't final yet.

 

As the spring signing period came to an end this week, the UCLA Bruins moved into the top spot in our recruiting rankings when 6-foot-10 post man J'Mison Morgan committed to the Bruins after being released from his national letter to LSU.  He will give UCLA a solid replacement for All-American Kevin Love who has opted to enter the NBA draft next month.  Love is expected to be a lottery pick.  Morgan was the one piece that UCLA had to replace this spring to put them in line for another run at the national crown next winter.

 

Maybe even more interesting is the de-commits of two big recruits at other Pac-10 schools.  First of all Arizona lost one of their top recruits, Emmanuel Negedu who is now considering Georgia Tech, Indiana, Memphis, and Tennessee.  And it breaks my heart to report that Malik Story received his release on Tuesday from U$C:

 

30. USC 4 Recruits: Demar DeRozan 6-foot-5 Jr Compton (Calif.); Donte Smith 5-foot-11 PG Mt. San Antonio CC (Calif.); Percy Miller 6-foot PG Beverly Hills (Calif.);  Leonard Washington 6-foot-6 CF Lake Charles Washington-Marion (La.).  Note: Trojans dropped out of top 20 when Malik Story decided to go elsewhere this past week.  Will others follow if Mayo situation worsens?

 

Hopefully this will set the stage for DeRozan to follow, leaving Timmeh with a useless PG/wannabe rapper that was only brought in to lure his buddy.  Hahahahaha!
