UCLA Coaches Out This Weekend

There are four major tournaments across the country this weekend, and UCLA's coaching staff will be stretched to see the UCLA prospects in all of them. They will get to see a concentrated amount in Denver at the Pump Spring Tournament...

This weekend at the Pumps Spring Tournament in Denver, Colo., there will be a number of UCLA prospects participating, and UCLA coaches coming and going.

They'll be coming and going since, during the course of one weekend, they'll try to get out to four different tournaments across the country: The Pumps in Denver; The Real Deal on the Hill in Arkansas; the Pitt Jam Fest in Pittsburgh, and the Kingwood Classic in Houston, Texas.

College coaching staffs can only have three coaches out at one time, per NCAA rules, so UCLA will be stretched to cover the four tournaments.

BRO will be just in Denver, however.

Along with us there will also be the following prospects:

Renardo Sidney, 6-9 JR C, Los Angeles Fairfax, #3 prospect in 2009
Reeves Nelson, 6-7 JR PF, Modesto (Calif.) Christian, #24 prospect in 2009, verbally committed to UCLA
