"Who's Lute Olson?"

Tyler Honecutt, a key target for UCLA basketball wonders:

Sylmar High forward Tyler Honeycutt is so inundated with calls from college coaches these days that his high school coach has instructed him to let each one go to voicemail before deciding whether to return it.
Among the coaches calling most often lately are UCLA assistants Scott Garson and Scott Duncan.
Honeycutt said UCLA began showing serious interest about a month ago, calling twice a week and watching him closely at its elite camp earlier this month. If the Bruins offer a scholarship after the July evaluation period, the 6-foot-7 senior-to-be said he'd seriously consider them, though he stopped short of saying he'd accept on the spot.
"I don't want to rush into anything, but I'd definitely be interested," Honeycutt said. "I like the tradition. A lot of players from there have gone on to the NBA which is something I'm trying to do."
An under-the-radar player prior to joining the heralded Pump N Run club team this year, Honeycutt has emerged as one of the state's most coveted prospects as more scouts have gotten the chance to see his game. Arizona State, USC and Washington have each offered scholarships, while Kansas, Arizona and Gonzaga are also recruiting him.
The attention is a little overwhelming for Honeycutt, who said every time his phone rings it's a different area code. When legendary Arizona coach Lute Olson called last week, Honeycutt asked high school coach Bort Escoto afterward, "Who's Lute Olson?"

Here is the full post from the Press Enterprise blog.

That has to be one of the best comments I have ever heard from a Bruin recruit!

Go Bruins!!!
