Official Visit News on Recruits

Kevin Love, the 6-9 center who is ranked the #3 player in the country and verbally committed to UCLA, plans to take his official visit to Westwood, and there is further news about other recruits, such as Kyle Singler, Derrick Rose and UCLA commit Chace Stanback...

Kevin Love, the 6-9 center from Lake Oswego (Ore.) High, the #3-ranked player in the nation who is committed to UCLA, will visit UCLA officially this weekend.

Love, however, will not be visiting with fellow prospect and friend, Kyle Singler, the 6-8 forward from Medford (Ore.) South Medford.

There had been discussion about Singler possibily officially visiting UCLA with Love. Singler has visited Arizona and Duke, and plans to visit Kansas October 14th for Midnight Madness. There is still a chance that Singler could visit UCLA officially sometime after that.

The early signing period for basketball begins Wednesday, November 8th.

Sources indicate that UCLA has still not been completely removed from consideration by Singler, but the chances are not good at this point for the Bruins.

There had also been talk that Derrick Rose, the 6-2 point guard from Chicago (Ill.) Simeon and the #6-ranked player in the country, would visit UCLA. Rose, however, has yet to take the SAT, and an SAT score is required for a prospect to take an official visit. Rose has, to date, taken unofficial visits to other schools and, while it's a possibility that Rose could unofficially visit UCLA, it's unlikely.

Besides Love, UCLA's other committed player, Chace Stanback, the 6-6 forward from Los Angeles (Calif.) Fairfax, will take his official visit sometime in late October or early November.
