Spring Hoops Recruiting Possibilities

There are some prospects and transfers emerging for UCLA to add this spring...

As we reported on the message board, USC transfer Byron Wesley might be a possibility to come to UCLA. He will leave USC and will be able to qualify as a graduate exemption to play his fourth year at the program of his choice. We've heard that he's considering moving across town to UCLA. Wesley led USC in scoring in 2013-2014, averaging 17.8 points per game.

There is a possibility that Namon Wright, the 6-3 shooting guard from Los Angeles (Calif.) Pacific Hills, could end up at UCLA. He signed a National Letter of Intent with Missouri, but Tiger head coach Frank Haith has left the program for Tulsa. Most of the time, when a coach leaves, the school will allow a signed prospect to get out of his NLI. We've heard that Wright could consider coming to UCLA, if he is indeed let out of his Missouri NLI. Wright is an athletic guard who can defend multiple positions, and would definitely add some athleticism to UCLA's backcourt.

Today UCLA made contact with Elijah Stewart, the 6-5 wing from Los Angeles Westchester, who was recently let out of his NLI to Loyola Marymount. Stewart is good enough easily to play in the Pac-12, and even though it was generally thought he'd go to USC, since USC's two assistant coaches are Westchester grads, UCLA is pursuing the possibility.

There is another transfer who is a possibility, a wing, and he'd have to sit out a year to transfer. There is a high school senior who might be getting out of his NLI -- also a wing.

There is also the possibility of Matt Carlino, the former Bruin who transferred to BYU, coming to UCLA as a graduate transfer.
