Adria Gasol, Brother of Pau Gasol to walk on this year

Pau Gasol's Brother Adria Gasol, has decided to walk on to UCLA:

Adria Gasol, the 18-year-old brother of NBA big men Pau and Marc Gasol, has enrolled as a student at UCLA and intends to walk-on to the team next season. A UCLA spokesman said the youngest Gasol brother will not join the Bruins on their exhibition tour of China when they leave Wednesday, but he will begin practicing with the team this fall.

Although the youngest Gasol is 6-foot-10 and has impressive bloodlines, it would be a surprise if he is able to make much impact at UCLA in the near future.

Ben Howland has seriously pulled a rabbit out on this one. We will have a good glut at Center, with him and Tony and Josh Smith.

As I was listening to ESPN Radio, who broke the news, they had called him a potential number one draft pick. Contrary to that report, it does appear that he is a project and is very raw and undeveloped.

FYI, his brother Marc Gasol was also seen as an overweight project and developed into an NBA star. So it appears he genes and potential is there. What more from there, remains to be seem. However, this is a no risk pick up for UCLA, and having the Gasols court side, should add intrigue.
