Nikki Caldwell lands touted signing class
By Blair Angulo
UCLA women's basketball coach Nikki Caldwell is having success off the court, too.
Caldwell, who has led the No. 16 Bruins to their highest ranking in four years, announced the signing of four highly touted players last week. ESPNU Hoopgurlz ranks it as the No. 4 recruiting class nationally.
The group, with overall ranking:
Justine Hartman (Brea, Calif./Brea-Olinda) - No. 7 overall
Kacy Swain (Temecula, Calif./St. Bernard) - No. 25 overall
Sheila Boykin (Long Beach, Calif./Long Beach Poly) - No. 27 overall
Moriah Faulk (Santa Monica, Calif./Santa Monica) - unranked
Said Caldwell: "These four young ladies are not only great basketball players, but exceptional young people. We look forward to them joining the Bruin family and contributing to the success of our program."
