Bruin Bites: Various Bruin Profiles, Ching Chong Ling Long Makes a Delicious Return, Pac-10 Wraps Up, and Somber News

It's been an interesting half-week so far here at Bruins Nation.  We kicked it off with a break-down on why UCLA is a premier destination for young basketball wing (shooting guard and small forward) players to come if they want to excel in college and the NBA. Shortly after, Ben Howland scored a big commitment from the next talented wing player to come to Westwood: Jordan Adams (in large part, no doubt, to new assistant Korey McCray's recruiting efforts). On that same theme, we shouldn't overlook the simple fact that UCLA has produced the most talent currently in the NBA.  We followed up by noting that UCLA remains a top-tier athletic program in the eyes of many across the nation, a fact apparently lost by the hacks at Morgan Center. Finally, in case you missed it, Ryan broke-down Richard Brehaut's decision to play baseball during the summer.

So, with that said, let's get to your bits and pieces of news from around the UCLA-iverse:

That's your Bruin Bites for the middle of this work week.  Recent grads, stay safe out there.  Fire away with your mid-week thoughts.
