De'End Parker, the 6-5 guard from City College of San Francisco, has verbally committed to UCLA, according to reliable sources.

Parker recently verbally committed to Cal, but switched his commitment to UCLA in the last day.

Many scouts consider Parker the best player on the best Juco team in California.

With a scholarship open for next season, and with uncertainty over whether Tyler Honeycutt will return, UCLA started targeting wings in recent months. They focused on Parker in the last several weeks.

Parker was recruited at the D-1 level out of San Francisco Lincoln High School, but was a non-qualifier.

This season he's played point guard for CCSF, averaging 13 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists per game.

It's believed UCLA is bringing in Parker as a wing.
