UCLA Basketball Recruiting: Alford Lands a Recruit with Baggage – Just$C Reject Isaac Hamilton

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Who needs point guards? The Hoosier Loser brings in another two guard at UCLA – a recruit who signed up to play for Tim Floyd and comes in with baggage.

Oh look everyone. The Hoosier Loser has found a blue-chip recruit - a head-caseIsaac Hamilton - from Timmeh Floyd's program:

Hamilton signed a national letter of intent with UTEP last November but decided over the summer that he'd rather play basketball closer to his home in California because, he said, he wanted to be near his ailing grandmother. But UTEP coach Tim Floyd refused to release Hamilton from the letter of intent, and a waiver to be released from the letter of intent was denied last week. Consequently, Hamilton will not be eligible to play at UCLA this season. His college career will begin in 2014-15.

From CollegeBasketballTalk:

As a senior at St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower, Calif., Hamilton averaged 22.1 points, 5.7 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game on a team that won the CIF Southern Section Class 3A title. There's no doubt that he's got the talent needed to make an immediate impact at UCLA. The question is whether or not he's the best answer for the Bruins at the point in 2014-15, with Bryce Alford and Zach LaVine (and whoever the Bruins could possibly reel in on the recruiting trail, but the pickings are slim at this stage).

Oh yeah baby!!

More shooting guards!

We beat out UTEP for this guy!! But ask yourself this -- why would a "McDonald's All-American" from Southern California will sign up to play for a loser scumbag like Floyd in first place? Can anyone provide sensible answers?

Even Just $C(!)  wanted nothing to do with this guy.

Guess, we need someone to catch those passes from Lil Alford for next 3 years.

What is funny about this Ben Howland spent his last few months also chasing after this kid who is a 2G and reportedly has issues for being a selfish player. So Alford is basically now copying the same recruiting strategy that got Holand fired in Westwood. Brilliant.
