Stover Gets Offer from UCLA

Anthony Stover, the 6-9 center from La Canada (Calif.) Renaissance, received a scholarship from UCLA Monday, according to his mother, Rena Stover.

The long-armed shot-blocker also received an offer from Arizona State.

Washington, Washington State, Oregon State, Stanford and Connecticut have already reportedly offered Stover.

It's a significant development for Stover. UCLA Head Coach Ben Howland had watched Stover throughout the first portion of the July evaluation period and there were rumors that the Bruins could offer. Stover has visited UCLA's campus a couple of times, and it's believed the Bruins would be at the top of his list if they offered.

The second half of the July evaluation period begins July 22nd with three big simultaneous tournaments in Las Vegas.

UCLA will, obviously, push to get commitments out of Stover and Tyler Honeycutt, the 6-7 small forward from Sylmar that the Bruins also offered on Monday.
