The second half of the Evaluation Period begins today, and UCLA coaches will be out and around the country for the rest of July checking out prospects.
The primary location for the next five days is Las Vegas, where there are three events happening simultaneously that feature quite a few UCLA prospects.
Here are many of the prospects UCLA will be focusing on:
Shabazz Muhammad, 6-5 wing – the #1 player in the nation, and still the word is that he's leaning to UCLA.
Jordan Adams, 6-4 wing – Very good shooter, verbally committed to UCLA.
William Goodwin, 6-7 power forward, is AAU teammates with Adams on the Atlanta Celtics, the team UCLA assistant Korey McCray used to coach.
Dominic Artis, 5-11 point guard – Has emerged as a prime target and the best point guard in the west. Has said UCLA is his leader and intended to announce his decision before the end of July.
Brandon Ashley – 6-8 power forward – a top-ten player that we've heard had narrowed it down to Oregon, Arizona and UCLA, with the Bruins in third.
L.J. Rose – 6-2 point guard. He's said it's between UCLA and Texas, but if Artis commits before him he won't have that choice.
Kyle Anderson, 6-7 point forward. He continues to impress onlookers, and UCLA is trying hard, but we heard that they could be fading behind east coast programs.
Javan Felix – 5-11 point guard. Was impressive in first half of July and moved up UCLA's list.
Zena Edosomwan – 6-7 power forward. Having a good July, improving his stock, and he wants an offer from UCLA.
Tyrone Wallace, 6-4 combo guard. Also having a good July and improving stock, and recently said was willing to wait until spring to decide.
Robert Upshaw, 6-11 center. Had a disappointing first half of July. UCLA has been recruiting him a long time, and he's one of the best centers in the country but has said he could wait until spring to decide.
D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera – 6-3 shooting guard. Can really put the ball in the hoop, has UCLA on his short list, but UCLA might be finished with wings by the time he's ready to decide.
Arnaud Moto – 6-5 wing. He's not playing due to an injury, and we're hearing more and more that he could be on his way to Wyoming. Yes, Wyoming. Because of a Cameroon connection with that program.
Tony Parker – 6-9 center. UCLA is trying and Parker is listening, but it's probably a long shot.
Zach Lavine – 6-1 combo guard. He has an injured hip that has him out for July and for a while. It might be good for UCLA since he definitely likes the Bruins and now many programs from around the country won't see him. UCLA offered him in camp.
Dakarai Allen -- 6-4 wing. Great athlete with a great feel who likes UCLA. Doesn't have UCLA offer but probably will pretty quickly.
Brandon Randolph – 6-0 point guard. Has chance to be elite high-major.
Chance Murray – 6-1 shooting guard. Very good shooter. UCLA has offered.
Kameron Rooks – 6-9 center. Emerging center, probably best big in the west for 2013.
Ikenna Iroegbu – 6-0 point guard. Good looking prospect who is getting high major interest.
Jordan Bell – 6-7 power forward. One of best at his position in west for 2013.
Stephen Domingo – 6-6 wing. Emerging as one of best in the west.
Andrew Harrison – 6-4 shooting guard.
Aaron Harrison – 6-4 shooting guard. Elite-level twins that have shown interest in UCLA and the Bruins want in on the recruitment.
Jabari Bird – 6-3 wing. Very good athlete and scorer who UCLA is now trying hard with.
Parker Jackson-Cartwright – 5-8 point guard. One of the most talented players in the west.
Shaqquan Aaron – 6-4 guard. Very skilled, and has a chance to be big time.
Namon Wright – 6-2 shooting guard. Versatile, great athlete, will be among best in west for 2014.
Stanley Johnson – 6-5 wing. Good athlete with very good ball skills. UCLA has offered.
Isaiah Bailey – 6-4 wing. Long, explosive athlete and slasher.
Chris Sandifer – 6-1 shooting guard. Can really stroke it.
Rashad Jackson – 6-1 shooting guard. Very good athlete.
Tyler Dorsey – 6-4 wing. Big-time scorer.
Brodricks Jones – 6-7 power forward. Long, looks like a young Kevin Garnett.
Aaron Holiday – 6-1 point guard. Little brother of Jrue Holiday. Looks like his brother and plays like him. UCLA could have a tough time recruiting him because of history.Stephen Zimmerman -- the 6-9 center. He'll go to Muhammad's high school next year and UCLA has already offered.
