Carlino to Transfer to BYU

According to the Salt Lake City Tribune, Matt Carlino is transferring to BYU.  Hiraliously, they list him as a PG.  The truth is if he had any potential as a PG, I think he would have a chance to play at UCLA.  He has played PG since High School only for his Dad. 

I wish the kid well and sorry his UCLA career got off to a bad start with the concussion.   Carlino will be a footnote to this season but he does show the problems recruiting for PG.

UCLA has quality recruits at 4 positions but PG, there is a bit of a disappointment and a JC transfer.  Not at the level of our other recruits.

And you look at what caused the failure of last year, more than anything else, it was the PG position.  CBH even said before a game this year that last year "we didn't have a Point Guard."  Carlino recruitment seems like a bit of desperation to find a PG.  


That Carlino could not make it as a PG reflects on our recruiting evaluations for PG.  At the time he left, he was considered a backup shooting guard.  The current backup PG, Anderson has not lived up to the hype at the level he was recruited. 


UCLA went after high profile PG recruits such Ray McCallum from across the country and struck out.  I've been told we ignored some good local guys in the pursuit of guys like McCallum

Carlino transferring in of itself is not bad.  Not having a top PG recruit is a concern.
