Steve Alford and UCLA have cast a wide net with their targets in the 2015 recruiting class. One of the wings they have shown significant interest in is D.J. Hogg, of Plano (Tex.) West.
Hogg told Scout.com at EYBL Dallas on Sunday that UCLA, along with Baylor, SMU, Texas A&M, Arizona and Missouri were the schools "on him the most."
What's Hogg's take on UCLA?
?"I like them a lot," he said when asked about the Bruins. "I mean it's UCLA."
Hogg, Scout.com's No. 30 overall prospect in the 2015 class, said he's been consistently hearing from the UCLA coaching staff.
"It's great because UCLA has always been a big program," Hogg said. "Their coach texts me every now and then. They came to the school a couple of times."
"They are just going to stay in touch and official or unofficial they are just trying to get me down there to see the campus and stuff like that," he added.
To date, Hogg has only taken unofficial visits to local schools like Texas A&M, Baylor, SMU and Texas. He did, however, say that distance wouldn't factor into his college decision.
"It doesn't really matter to me, just whatever is the best fit for me," Hogg said.
On the court, Hogg has had an impressive spring. A terrific long-range shooter, Hogg has an effortless stroke with deep range. He's also a pretty good athlete that has a high basketball IQ.
"My jump shot," Hogg responded when asked about his biggest strength. "I think I shoot the ball pretty well. I hustle and I'm a team player. I'm about winning."
Through eight games on the EYBL circuit, Hogg is averaging 16.6 points per game and has hit 27 of 60 three-pointers, which is good for 45-percent.
