Evan Burns Update

The top ten national basketball prospect who has verbally committed to UCLA comments about the SAT, his decision to go to UCLA and the NBA...

Evan Burns, 6-7 SF Los Angeles Fairfax, said last week that he's already attempted the SAT once this fall..

"I took the SAT in October," Evan said. "And I'm going to take it again on Saturday (last Saturday, December 1st)."

Having not signed a NLI in fall because of his academic status, Burns, though, reiterated that he's very committed to UCLA. "I liked San Diego State initially, but it's kind of like when you go shopping for a car," Burns said. "The first one you see, it looks good and you're ready to take that one. But then UCLA came in, made their presentation, and I was sold. I knew that was where I wanted to go."

There has been speculation about Burns possibly foregoing college and submitting his name for the NBA draft next spring. "Right now, I'm set on going to UCLA. But if the opportunity were to come, then I'd have to think about it. But I don't want any ‘ifs.' I don't want to hear ‘if this' or ‘if that' (in regards to where he'd go in the draft). If someone tells me that I'll definitely be going at a certain spot, then I'd probably go. I have to think about my future."
