Sidney to UCLA Now Uncertain

A day after we heard that Los Angeles (Calif.) Fairfax's Renardo Sidney, the vastly talented 6-9 center, was going to verbally commit to UCLA on Sunday, we've learned new information that makes the situation quite murky...

On Tuesday, a source told us that Renardo Sidney, the #5-ranked player in the nation, would verbally commit to UCLA on Sunday.

Today we've heard that UCLA might not accept the verbal commitment.

A couple of sources are now indicating that some powers in the UCLA athletic department are uncertain about allowing Sidney into UCLA.

The 6-9, 250-pounder has been controversial, having some on- and off-the-court issues in the past. Reportedly, this season Sidney had done quite a bit of work to get himself in better physical shape and improve his on-the-court behavior.

Sidney has yet to even take the SAT, which is late for a senior.
