Drew to Jrue

I had heard about this story earlier. But I certainly missed LAT covering the news. Jrue drops UNC narrowing his choice to UDub and UCLA:

Jrue Holiday, a 6-foot-4 junior guard at North Hollywood Campbell Hall who is ranked as the No. 2 basketball prospect in the nation by one recruiting service, has narrowed his college choices to UCLA and Washington, his mother, Toya, said Thursday.

Holiday, who led Campbell Hall to the Division IV state championship in March, has remained silent for months about his college plans, but his mother said he told her this week that UCLA and Washington were his final two.

He will be taking an unofficial visit to Washington on June 10. Holiday's brother, Justin, signed with the Huskies last November and will be a freshman this fall. Holiday has yet to make a visit, unofficial or official, to UCLA, but Toya Holiday said she plans to contact Bruins Coach Ben Howland to arrange one.

Washington and UCLA recently engaged in a spirited recruiting battle for 6-9 Drew Gordon of San Jose Archbishop Mitty until the junior announced Monday that he had committed to UCLA.

Holiday is expected to announce his decision later this summer.
lol So much for UNC trotting out Air Jordan during Jrue's trip to Chapell Hill. This wasn't a surprise to me.

Anyways so we are down to UCLA and some other Pac-10 school. Needless to say I feel little more than confident about our chances having Howland going up against a program in decline and a program UCLA is going to DOMINATE just like rest of the Pac-10 in the coming years.

In Howland we trust.
