Gaddy to Visit UCLA Thursday

Abdul Gaddy, the 6-3 point guard from Tacoma (Wash.) Bellarmine Prep, will begin his official visit to UCLA today, according to sources close to the situation.

Gaddy arrived in Los Angeles Wednesday night, and then Thurday will start his official visit, which will go until Saturday.

UCLA coaches will then have an in-home visit with Gaddy September 9th.

Different sources have indicated that it's between UCLA and Arizona for the #2-ranked point guard.

He's also scheduled to visit Arizona next weekend and have an in-home visit with the Arizona coaching staff next week.

The general feeling on the recruitment is that Arizona has been leading for sometime, even despite Gaddy's decommitment from Arizona in spring. But the word is that UCLA has really made up some ground on Arizona with Gaddy. The official visit to UCLA will be critical in the recruitment, since Gaddy's already been to Arizona's campus but hasn't been to UCLA.
