UCLA in Rabb's Top Five

OCT. 25 -- Five-star Oakland (Calif.) Bishop O'Dowd power forward Ivan Rabb announced his top five yesterday, and UCLA made the cut...

Five-star power forward Ivan Rabb cut his list to five yesterday, and the Bruins can breathe a sigh of relief. As expected, UCLA, Arizona, and California all made the list, with Kentucky and Kansas rounding out the group.

With UCLA making its way into Rabb's top five, the Bruins will more than likely garner an official visit from the talented post. Rabb will make his first official visit to Kentucky this weekend.

Rabb is likely going to sign during the spring period, so he could take his visit to UCLA later in the cycle, rather than spend it in the early part of the season.

The Bruins already have a couple of star-studded recruiting weekends through the end of October. UCLA is playing host to five-star center Stephen Zimmerman and five-star small forward Brandon Ingram this weekend. Then, next weekend, UCLA will host five-star power forward Carlton Bragg and five-star small forward, and No. 1 player in the country, Jaylen Brown.

Closing on any combination of two or three of those players would likely vault UCLA's 2015 class into elite territory.
