UCLA lands 2013 Guard Isaac Hamilton

UCLA should be extremely excited for next year, where these dismal couple of years could be turn around with 5 star guard Isaac Hamilton shown above, will suit up for the Bruins.
UPDATE:   

UCLA men’s basketball Head Coach Steve Alford announced today the signing of Isaac Hamilton, a 6’5, 185 lb freshman guard from Los Angeles. A graduate of St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower, California in 2013, Hamilton began his fall quarter classes and signed a scholarship offer from UCLA today. Originally he was committed to UTEP, where they had appeared to score the biggest recruit in the recent history of its basketball program when 5 star guard Isaac Hamilton committed to play for the Miners late last year. But his brief and tumultuous tenure with the school had come to an end, and he moved onto to UCLA. Hamilton was denied a National Letter of Intent waiver to play for a different school this season, so he will only be able to participate academically at UCLA this year. He will be able to suit up for the Bruins next year, where is brother will also be suiting up for the University of Connecticut for his freshmen year.
