Just in. Jill Painter from the Daily News is reporting that J'mison Morgan's brother has confirmed his inetent to transfer to UCLA, pending his release from his LSU LOI. He also says that they fully expect the LSU administration to grant his release. Did Ben Howland know something we didn't when he released Chace Stanback? Meaning, did he already have a good idea of who will be coming back, who he is still going after that will come to UCLA, etc. and therefore lead Chace in the direction of transfering? This would certainly be a huge coup for Howland and for UCLA. This would cement our stellar class and make us extremely formidable next year no matter who comes back. Getting Shipp, Aboya, and Mbah Moute would certainly help.
Very interesting indeed. Here is the post on DN's blog:"Morgan 'for sure' to UCLA

I just spoke with Ronnie Morgan, J'Mison Morgan's brother, and he said ``he's planning for sure to attend UCLA next year.''
Morgan also said he believes LSU will let J'Mison Morgan out of his letter-of-intent, paving the way for Morgan to play for the Bruins this season.
``They haven't made an (official) decision yet, but they say they're going to (grant the release),'' Ronnie Morgan said."
